Standard Chartered Bank

wanyonghong122@yahoo.com.hk

There is US$ 8,370,000.00 deposited, I alone have the  deposit
details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I
instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of  this
deposit for as far as the finance firm, the transaction with our
deceased customer concluded when I sent the funds to the firm,
all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just
customer services and due process. The finance firm has no single
idea of what's the history or nature of the deposit. They are
simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party
that comes forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent
great amounts of money trying to track  this man's family; they
have investigated for months and have found no family. The
investigation has come to an end.

If you give me positive signals,I will initiate this process
towards a conclusion.Please observe this instruction religiously.
Please note again, I am a happily married with two kids. I send
you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the
consequences might be, but I know within me that nothing ventured
is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or
on a platter of gold.

I await your response.

Dear sir/ma,

My name is Ben Morgan. I'm a freelance researcher; I'd be very interested
in offering you a Paying Part-Time Job Offer, in which you'd earn a lot. I
just resigned my job as a research scientist for NRI (National Research
Institute), but I still work as a freelance consultant for the instistute,
which gives me very much time to do my own work which is basically being a
freelance researcher, who'd be employed by research institutes to do
research projects anywhere in the world.

"WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US: Presently, I've just been granted funding to
head a research project in the tropical regions of West Africa, regarding
rare and vulnerable plant species; and this would be commencing very soon;
however, my fundings were by my American counterparts, which sent me the
bunch of payments mostly in US-based Money Orders. Getting an accountant
in the States or opening an account would've been my best choice, but I've
a deadline to meet; and taking any of those choices would cost me time and
a whole lot of other requirements I'm not ready to deal with, as I'd be
traveling a lot in the meantime. So presently, assuming you'd be able to
deal with cash, I'd be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my
payment representative back in the States; this way, I'd issue and make
these Money Orders out to you, you'd then cash them easily, withdraw 10%
of the total amount on these Money Orders as your commission, and then
send the rest back to me through Western Union Money Transfer.

"JOB DESCRIPTION:
1. Receive payment from clients;
2. Cash payments at your Bank;
3. Deduct 10%, which will be your percentage/pay on payment processed;
4. Forward balance afer deduction of percentage & pay to any of the
offices you'll be contacted to send payment to (Payment is to be forwarded
by Western Union Money Transfer).

"HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN? 10% from each operation! For instance, you
receive 7000USD via a safe Couruer Service; you'll cash the Money, keep
$700 (10% from $7000) for yourself, and send the rest where you will be
insructed to send it. At the beginning your commission will equal 10%,
though later it will increase up to 12%!

"ADVANTAGES: You don't have to go out, as you'll work as an independent
contractor right from your home or office. Your job's absolutely legal.
You can earn up to $3000-4000 monthly, depending on time you'll spend for
this job. You do not need any capital to start. The employees who make
efforts and work hard have a strong possibility to become managers.
Anyway, our
employees never leave us!

"MAIN REQUIREMENTS: 18 years or older. Legally capable. Responsible. Ready
to work 3-4 hours per week with PC knowledge, E-mail, and internet
experience (minimal).  And please know that everything is absolutely
legal; that's why you have to fill a contract! I'd be glad if you accept
my offer, and I intend to commence on the job as soon as you're ready!
"Please note when replying fill the form below:

1) Full Name: .....
2) Contact Address (not p.o.box): .....
3) Contact Phone Number: .....
4)CITY: .....
5) State: .....
6) Zip code: .....
7) Age: .....
8) Sex: .... ;
9) Current Job: ..... .
10)Bank Name..... .

This kind of spam email really peeves me off:



Dear Friend,

I sincerely hope that after you read this mail you will respond to my call, let me start by introducing myself my name is Williams Goodluck. I am 78 years old, a British living in Bristol BS4 3HU United Kingdom.  I am a businessman and own two companies, married with two children. My wife and two children died in a car accident six years ago but before this happen, my business and concern for making money was all I lived for I never really cared about other values in life but since the loss of my family, I have found a new desire to assist helpless families.

I have been helping orphans in motherless homes; I have donated some money to orphans in Sudan, America and some Asian countries. Before I became ill, I kept some money, Nine Million Dollars ($9million) to be precise in a long-term deposit account in a Security Outfit.
Presently, I'm in a hospital my doctor told me I have prostate cancer that I have a few months to live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity organizations.

Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, hence I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them since the money in the Security Outfit is the last fund that I have left. Right now i am partially stranded in the hospital due to the nature of my sickness so I am appealing to you to help me collect the deposit from the Security Outfit and distribute it amongst charity organizations.

I would want you to use your discretion to distribute the money and keep 35% of it for yourself. Feel free to reimburse yourself when you have the money for any cost you might have occurred during the process of collecting and distributing the money to charity organizations. May the good Lord bless you and your family.

Please reply to this mail as I can only communicate through my laptop which is by my bed, as soon as I get your response I shall then give you the necessary information you need to claim this fund from the security outfit.
God bless you.

Mr.Williams Goodluck.

MY PERSONAL INTENT: ARE YOU RELIABLE?

Mrs Rose Johnson
 
   
YOU ARE THE LORD CHOSEN ONE
 
I sincerely apologize for not taking your permission before  contacting you while also asking you to pardon my poor English, as I am half  educated. It is rather unfortunate that I am writing this mail to you in deep tears while lying on a hospital bed due to chronic cancer of the lungs waiting for the time to pass unto eternal glory. My ordeal is quite complicated but I will appreciate it if you give a little time to hear me out.
 
First, I would like to start by introducing my self to you. I am Mrs. Rose Johnson from Cotonou, Republic of Benin in West Africa as stated above. I was born on the 7 th of April 1952 in a small village and grew up as a petty trader until I met my husband who was a Cocoa Trader. We got married and lived happily together but had no children. This never bothered us as we were good Christians and never blamed God for that.
 
Three years ago, I lost my husband in a motor accident while going on his trade. His death was the beginning of my unfortunate ordeal.  I had to undergo a lot of ritual procedures based on tradition by his family members to find out if I had a hand in his death. Part of the ritual was being forced to drink water from his dead body. It is a common thing that happens to African Women.
 
This was not all as all properties belonging to him in my possession was taking away from me and was made an outcast. I lived alone for 3 years as a widow with serious agony while praying to the Lord to take charge. Unknown to his family members, my late husband had a total sum of $18, 000,000 USD (Eighteen  Million United States Dollars) which was left secretly in a Bank. His lawyer who presently resides in the  Nigeria Secretly  revealed it to me.
 
Since I have no close family to give it to as I am the only daughter of my parents who died long ago and do not intend to give it to the family of my late husband, I thought it would be good to find someone reliable who could use the money to help the poor and needy hence my contacting you. I will appreciate if you utilize the funds properly as instructed.
 
Kindly get back to me as soon as possible so that I can provide you with contact information of the Lawyer in Nigeria who you will contact for further details to collect the funds. May God bless you as you take up this opportunity to help the poor and the needy.
 
Regards,
 
Mrs.Rose Johnson

Greetings Dear Friend ,

 I apollogise in advance if this mail comes to you as an embarrassment
 because of so many things that happens in our times. However I would
 want you to see me as lonely
voice of an oppressed woman seeking for help.

 My spirit was moved to contact you despite the fact that I have not
 met you before. You might wonder why I cannot carry out my proposal to
 you with my Kith and Kin but
I have faced so many betrayals and I also stand to loose my life if I
 involve them in this. My name is. Rev Mrs Esther Alex, widow to late,
 Bishop. Patrick Henshaw Alex,
and the General overseer of community of Yahweh assembly Porto Novo,
 Republic of Benin, who died in Republic of Togo in a ghastly auto crash.
 As God will have it, we had
three children,a son and two daughters. More to this, I was diagnosed
 of esophageal cancer before he died. Today this ailment has kept me bed
 ridden for the past three years.
The high point of this mail was that my late husband had a very large
 congregation here and as such the church had a lot of funds. No sooner
 that my husband died than
the elders of the church devoured all that was left in the church
 accounts and forcefully ejected me from the official residence of me and my
 husband.

 Before my husband's death he deposited six million, five hundred
 thousand United States dollars in a security deposit company here in
 Republic Of Benin in the name of
my son Mathew Alex. I am the only person with the knowledge of this
 money deposited in the security deposit company.

 This fund was raised from the numerous donations he received and in
 particular a South African gold merchant that regained his sight in our
 church. As it is presently, my
ailment has defiled all forms of medical treatment; I am very worried,
 as the doctors have informed me that it is terminal.Presently I have
 been disposessed of all the funds
in my possession by the church elders and my husband's relatives. They
 achieved this by conniving with very corrupt government officials.This
 fund is the only money left
for me and my family to survive.

 I am lamb in the midst of wolves, hence I am soliciting your
 assistance to have this money in the security deposit company released to you so
 that you can use the money
for investments in your name and my Son as I do not want my husband's
 relatives or people from my country to have knowledge of this deposit
 for security reasons.

 I have arranged with the security deposit company to take this fund
 outside my country but I have not found an honest person to assist me in
 receiving this money and investing
it wisely that is why am contacting you to seek your help to receive
 this money on behalf of my family.

 Please get back to me with your legal names, phone and fax numbers if
 you are willing to be of assistance to me. I assure you that you stand
 no risk in rendering help to me.
It will be of mutual benefit to me and you.

 May God cause his face to shine on you as you respond to my mail for
 more details through my very personal email
 account:revmisestheralex@googlemail.com

 With Best Regards
 Rev Mrs Esther Alex

MY DEAR,
 
I CHOSE YOU TO DO GOD'S WORK, NOT MINE, BUT BE REMINDED THAT GOD WILL BE USING YOU AS A POINT OF CONTACT TO THE LESS PRIVILAGED IN THE WORLD AROUND YOU. AND SO YOU WILL BE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD SOMEDAY ON HOW YOU USED THE FUNDS THAT WAS PROVIDED TO YOU FOR HIS WORK.
 
I AM MRS. FARIDA JIBRIL; A WIDOW TO LATE MR. MOHAMMED JIBRIL ROM IRAN. I AM CONTACTING YOU FROM MY HOSPITAL BED WITH A LAPTOP FROM ROTTERDAM, NETHERLAND. I AM SUFFERING FROM A LONG TIME CANCER OF THE BREAST WHICH WAS NOT DIAGNOSED IN TIME. IN ALL INDICATIONS, MY CONDITION IS REALLY DETERIORATING BY THE DAY AND IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THAT I MAY NOT LIVE MORE THAN SIX MONTHS, ACCORDING TO MY DOCTORS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE STAGE OF THE CANCER HAS GOTTEN TO A VERY BAD STAGE OF LITTLE OR NO HOPES FOR ME TO SURVIVE IT. BUT GOD CAN STILL DO HIS MIRACLE ON ME.
 
I AM WRITING YOU TODAY TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE GOOD REPORT I RECEIVED ABOUT YOUR PERSONALITY THROUGH A GOOD CONTACT I MADE FROM DUBAI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, WHERE A LONG LIST OF FOREIGN ADDRESSES WAS PRESENTED TO ME.AND MY INTUITION TOLD ME TO CONTACT YOU IN THIS REGARD AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN ME NEVER LIES. MY LATE BROTHER WHO WAS A VERY WEALTHY CONTRACTOR WAS KILLED DURING THE INVASION OF KUWAIT BY IRAQ. AFTER HIS DEATH, I INHERITED ALL HIS WEALTH SINCE HE HAD NO BIOLOGICAL OR ADOPTED CHILD. SINCE MY DOCTORS ANAYLISED THAT I MAY NOT LIVE FOR MORE THAN SIX MONTHS, I DECIDED TO DEDICATE A PART OF MY WEALTH, TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHURCHES AND MOSQUES IN AFRICA, AMERICA, ASIA AND EUROPE ESPECIALLY TO CREATE SOLUTION TO SOME PROBLEMS OF THE LESS PRIVILAGED AND ORPHANAGE HOMES.
 
MY DEAR IN THE LORD, I CHOSE YOU AFTER I PRAYED AND FASTED FOR THREE WEEKS OVER THIS ISSUE WHILE SEEKING THE WILL OF GOD TO BE DONE. I AM WILLING TO DONATE THE SUM OF $5,000,000 MILLION U.S DOLLARS, TO THE LESS PRIVILEGED IN THE SOCIETY. PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THIS FUND IS IN CUSTODY OF A SECURITY COMPANY. AS SOON AS YOU GET BACK TO ME I WILL RECOMMEND TO YOU AN ATTORNEY WHO WILL FILE IN AN APPLICATION FOR THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS THAT WILL EMPOWER YOU TO HANDLE THE FUNDS ON MY BEHALF OK. ALL YOU NEED DO IS TO FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTIONS AND ALWAYS KEEP ME UPDATED.
 
LASTLY, I HONESTLY PRAY YOU TO PLEASE UTILISE THE FUNDS FOR THE PURPOSE IT WAS EARMARKED FOR SO THAT YOU DON'T ATTRACT THE WRATH OF GOD UPON YOURSELF. IN ORDER TO HELP YOU AVOID THE TEMPTATION OF USING THIS FUND FOR YOURSELF, I ALREADY MADE A PROVISION FOR YOU TO HAVE ONLY 10% OUT OF THE FUNDS, WHICH WILL AMOUNT TO $500,000 US DOLLARS (FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS). AS A GOD FEARING PERSON, THE ABOVE AMOUNT AS IN COMPENSATION WILL BE ENOUGH TO HELP YOU TO ACHIEVE COMFORT WHILE KEEPING GOD'S FUND FOR HIS WORKS. FOR THE BIBLE SAYS, GIVE TO CEASER WHAT BELONGS TO HIM AND TO GOD WHAT IS GOD'S. ALSO, 5% OF THE FUND WILL BE USED TO TAKE CARE OF EXPENSES INCURRED BY ALL PARTIES INVOLVED FOR INSTANCE, PAYING OF THE LAWYER FOR HIS COMMITTED SERVICES AND ALL OTHER EXPENSES. BECAUSE I HAVECOME TO FIND OUT THAT WEALTH ACQUISITION WITHOUT GOD AND GOOD DEEDS IS VANITY, I MADE THE PROMISE TO GOD THAT THE FUND WILL BE USED FOR HIS WORKS.
 
I AWAIT YOUR URGENT RESPONSE. PLEASE, SEND A COPY TO MY CONFIDENTIAL EMAIL BELOW IF YOU ARE SINCERELY WILLING AND CAPABLE, faridajibril@sify.com REMAIN BLESSED AND MAY YOU LIVE LONG.
 
MRS. FARIDA JIBRIL
