Sehr kurz gefasst, erreichte mich gestern folgende e-mail:
I am eric li ka, working with hang seng,contact me for a proposal of
15.5m USD via cheungeric56 @yahoo.com.hk
Mich fragend, wer zur Hölle Hand Seng sei, und natürlich voller Vorfreude auf meinen Millionengewinn, schrieb ich Eric also zurück:
My name is Sue Plattler and I live in Baveria, germany.
I was very happy about your mail, i will do whatever I have to do for the money.
Please tell me more about your story and why you chose me.
Es folgte eine Geschichte, die mindestens so seriös war, wie die Yahoo e-Mailadresse des Bankers:
First I wish to thank you for your response.
I sincerely appreciate your interest to assist me in this transaction, however I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and commitment to execute this project with me, I cannot afford to compromise these virtues and none of your personal information will be shared with anybody whatsoever, I have my principles.
About me and the funds: Like I said earlier, I am Mr. Cheung Eric Li Ka a Director of the Hang Seng Bank LTD Hong Kong. My client Reimer Fischer, A german businessman a crude oil Merchant based in iraq, made a fixed deposit with a value of 15.5m USD for 18 months with my bank been proceeds from crude oil supplies. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him but we did not hear from him in iraq.
It was later discovered that he was killed with his entire family in the Iraqi war with NO living witness to this fund as he had no next of kin. Now what I want to do is to place you as the next of kin to my late client since he had none and have the funds released to you for the both of us to share in the ratio 50% for me and 50% for you.
I got hold of your email through the web directories and I had decided to contact you since I needed a reliable foreigner that can help me pull the funds out of my bank as I cannot do it myself and I do not want anyone around me (family, friends and my bank) to be aware that the move is from me.
You should not have anything to worry about, as I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to my deceased client, and all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, your Age and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. The attorney will prepare the Affidavits which shall legally put you in place as next of kin, he will obtain the necessary clearances which will cover all the aspects involved in this transaction from the Hong Kong authorities including the Justice department.
What I expect from you is trust and commitment, I want this huge sum of money transferred with your assistance. The fact that you are a foreigner give you the priviledge to stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as there is no next of kin or beneficiary put in place by him on the funds.. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 4 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Hence, I want us to act fast and get this funds transferred in our favour and as a banker I know that if we follow up this transaction diligently it would be completed within 10 working days.
I want you to assure me that you will follow up this business seriously and as soon as I hear from you with your information, I shall give the Attorney a go-ahead to prepare the documents in your name. I shall be waiting for your response and assurance in this regard, you need to be someone whom I can rely upon, at least for absolute commitment.
I await your response
Ich arbeite grad noch an meiner Antwort - Vorschläge vor ;)
