Contents - List
of Scams by Type and by profession.
I am tracking this one currently. This is all the information I
have. I will post more as I get replies to the emails I am
returning. However I am guessing that this is an attempt to
"Deposit" cash to your account and to eventually remove all cash
from your account.. in other words these guys are PHISHING for your
account info. Reply Indicates that this is a simple Bank Phishing
scam.. Most likely scenario is that they ask for your account info
so that they can transfer the money to your bank.. only they
transfer YOUR money out.

FROM: Wang HongZhang
People's Bank of China, Beijing
Thank you for your response,Before the U.S and Iraqi war,a client of Bank of China, Khazeal Hamood Hasaab a Merchant made a numbered fixed deposit valued at $24,500,000.00 (Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars), for 18 calendar months, at Bank of China (BOCHK), Tower Branch, 1 Garden Road Hong Kong. Upon maturity several notices were sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again, after the war another notification was sent, but still no response came from him. It was later found out that Mr Khazeal Hamood Hasaab, his wife and two sons had been killed during the war.
http://www.iraqbodycount.n Link is unconfirmed.. do not use it as I do not know if this is a legitimate Link.
After further investigation, it was also discovered that Mr Khazeal did not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the paperwork of his bank deposit. He also confided, in the Chief Risk Officer, Bank of China (BOCHK) Mr. CHEUNG Alex Yau Shing, that no one knew of his deposit in the bank. According to the laws of my country, at the expiration of 4years and 6 months such funds are reverted to the Peoples Bank Of China (PBC), where it will be deposited in the reserve of the Government, if nobody applies to claim it. Due to the fact that the fund has been in the bank for more than four years, provisions are being made for it to be reverted to my Bank (PBC). When the case was presented at my desk, I contacted the risk officer(BOCHK), who is a good friend of mine and gathered all the information that I have presented to you. Against this backdrop, I will like you, as a foreigner, to stand as next of kin to Khazeal Hamood Hasaab, so that we can receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE;
I want you to know that there is no risk involved. We have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney who will prepare the necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Khazeal Hamood Hasaab. All that is required from you, at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, private phone/fax and current residential address, so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Should you be interested I shall provide you with more details on this operation.
