just rec'd this dodgy e-mail below:-
MR. Qin Wang.

I am Mr. Qin Wang, credit officer of Hang Seng Bank Ltd,I have an urgent
and very confidential business proposition for you.I honestly apologize
and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by contacting you through
this means for a transaction of this magnitude,but this is due to
confidentia lity and prompt access reposed on this medium,sorry my English
is not very good.

Furthermore,due to this issue on my hands now,it became necesary for me to
seek your assistance, and it is imperative for me to know your opinion.On
sept. 6,1999, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the chinese Solid
Minerals Corporation, Mr. Richard Nault made a numbered time (Fixed)
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$30,000,000.00 (Therty
Million Dollars only) in my branch.

Upon maturity,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but
got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered
from his contract employers, the Hong Kong Solid Minerals Corporation that
Mr. Richard Nault died from an automobile accident. On further
investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all
attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.
RichardNault did not declare any kin or relations in all his official
documents,including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of
US$30,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being
rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.

No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of Hong Kong,
at the expiration of 5(five) years,the money will revert to the ownership
of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand
in as the next of kin to Mr. Richard Nault so that the fruits of this old
man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government
officials.This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full
names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary
documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the nextof kin.

We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and otarization
of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of
probate/administration in your favor for the transfer.The money will be
paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 70% for me and 25%
for you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be
done by the attorney and with my position as the credit officer guarantees
the successful execution of this transaction.If you are interested,please
reply immediately.Please reply to my alternative email box, Upon your response. I shall then provide you with
more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the
transaction.Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for
easy communication. You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest
assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us
because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Thanks and regards.
Mr. Qin Wang.

Sorry but I'm not prepared to share the fortune that Mr Qin Wang seems to be offering you. He has already contacted me about this and he never mentioned anything about others taking part in this venture - I thought that it was just between the two parties. I am very disappointed:-((((

(Note: my offering above is in jest. I have received an almost exact replica of Mr Qin Wang's letter. I have not even considered for a fleeting moment that I should take the offer up).
