Beneficiary scam - Finkelstein & Partner

Finkelstein & Partner

Subject: Explanations concerning your request for $51,164.40!

17.06.2014

Dear ,

You have certainly heard of us either on the radio or on TV, or you've read about us in the "financial" section of your newspaper. The trust company Finkelstein & Partner is an international company specialised in the correct and legal transfer of important sums of money as well as for the payment of dividends, winnings or inheritances.

We have been assigned today by our principal client, a big group of luxury consumables, to write to you. This group of international renown (which doesn't wish its name to be given before the end of the formalities) is well known by specialists in its domain and by its commercial partners, for its extraordinary social commitments.

The Management Committee of the group organises, at the end of each financial year, the distribution of winnings exclusively reserved for a number of selected clients, who must conform to a number of conditions. Part of the particular philosophy of the company is that a part of company benefits should be given to people who haven't been treated kindly by life during the past years.

But I prefer to get to the subject of this letter straight away. I have the great pleasure to inform you that you're on top of the list of the happy beneficiaries. For you it's the sum of $51,164.40!

Once again in black and white: $ 51,164.40 are ready for you, It's undeniable!

You are perhaps a bit surprised by this rather complicated figure. Let me explain the reason: the payment of the sum is always paid in the currency of the person to benefit from it, by cheque or by bank transfer. By using the actual conversion rates, this makes the sum of $ 51,164.40.

Let me explain briefly what's going to happen now:
As it's a very big sum of money, we must take the necessary precautions as we can't send this sum before having checked your personal data. As, not only are we obliged to do this with regards to our principal client, but also with regards to law and justice so that the legal procedure of the payment of the cheque and the remittance to the legitimate beneficiary be honoured!

Consequently and in order to check out your data, I've prepared an official request form for you which is enclosed with this letter.This document enables you to make the request for the sum of $ 51,164.40.

please proceed in the following manner:
1. Fill in your request form carefully while making sure that it's complete and stick the identification sticker in the right place. This is of major importance (in case of missing information, no double checking of your data will be possible and your
winnings would be lost).
2. Send us your request form, after having checked carefully the information given, in the reply envelope and as quickly as possible, so that we can, after a final checking and approval of your data, proceed in paying you the $ 51,164.40 by cheque or by bank transfer.

Inheritance Scam - Chong Hing Bank Limited - Mr Tit Shing LIU

16th June, 2014

Dear ,

Contacting you through this letter is not with the intention to delve into your privacy without caution or distract you with my intents and purposeful endeavour. I have decided to reach you with the hope of building a relationship of trust, reliance and confidence which you will come to understand and appreciate in the near future. I am Mr. Don Tit Shing LIU (Deputy Chief Executive Officer) of Chong Hing Bank Ltd, Chong Hing Bank Centre, 24 Des Voeux Rd. Central, Hong Kong. Your contact details was taken from the New Zealand public record registry, in the quest for a last name similar to that of a late customer from my bank, Dr. Sudin , an oil Magnate that lived in Hong Kong for about twelve years. He passed on with his immediate family in the natural disaster (Hurricane Andrew) which occurred in August 1992, without appointing a next of kin to his estate.

Before the above mentioned ugly catastrophe that cause his death, a lump sum deposit of $65,611,281.00 (Sixty Five Million, Six Hundred and Eleven Thousand, Two Hundred and Eighty One USD) was placed under my bank's custody for safe keeping. On the condition that you bear the same last name with the deceased oil magnet, it has prompted me to present you as his next of kin to apply and claims the deposit he had with my bank, to avoid the confiscation of the said funds by the authorities and returned to the treasury of the bank of china as unclaimed proceeds of trade and deposit from late customers. Following the reasons that we operate in compliance with the Hong Kong laws, such proceeds is conferred to the government's treasury if all effort to find heirs, next of kin or members of the deceased's family proves abortive in all ways during the specified time period, required to find a beneficiary to claim the funds. However, this law is unjust and inhuman as it often creates avenues for the top officials of some financial institutions to divert such fortunes for their own selfish use. On that ground, I decided to search for any of my late client's relative which has proved abortive as he did not declare officially any Next of kin or beneficiary. However, this law is unjust and inhuman as it often creates avenues for the top officials of some financial institutions to divert such fortunes for their own selfish use.

I am contacting you because you share the same last name with my late client; I know you are not related but after countless efforts to locate direct relative to the late client, due to the (6) six months final notice from the Bank to find a beneficiary to the fund, and failure to meet up with this deadline means the fund will be liquidated to the Bureau as unclaimed fund and that I forbid happening. Against this backdrop, I decided to contact you to join me to put claims on this deposit before it's forfeited to the authorities.

My suggestion to you is, I will like to present you as the Next of Kin and beneficiary to this deposit, since you are both foreign nationals and you share same last name by virtue of my position as the branch manager, I will now place your name as the Next of kin/Beneficiary to the late client and I will prepare the relevant legal documentations that will assist to facilitate the release of the fund to you without any breach of the law.

Note that I have worked out all modalities to complete the transaction successfully, be rest assured that the transaction is 100% legal and risk free. Once the fund is released to you, we shall share in the ratio of 55% for me, 40% for you while remaining 5% will be set aside charitable works. If my proposal is acceptable to you, kindly reply via any of my emails.tsliu77 @ asia.com. tsliu77 @ accountant.com, or can be reached at all times on my direct telephone number Tel: +85281982415

Regards Sincerely

OUR REF: JPLNESQ/ESP/05/14

Dear .

I am Barrister Jim Perfect; a senior partner, Madrid Spain, I got your contact information from the New Zealand public record while searching for a last name similar to my late client's, a business magnate by Mr. , who lived in Spain for over two (2) decades prior to his death. He died of a heart attack one year later after the demise of his wife and two children in a car accident which occurred December 2007.

Prior to further explanation, please accept my apology for this unsolicited mail. I am conscious that this is certainly not a predictable way of approach to foster a relationship of trust, but because of the circumstances and urgency surrounding this issue, I got to this point. Before the calamity; He deposited one Trunk Box of Personal Treasure, containing the sum of $9.5M (Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars Only) to a Security and Financial Institution here in Spain and because of security and personal reasons, he did not disclose the exact content of the deposited box to the Security Firm. As the attorney to late Mr. , the Security Firm has mandated me to present a member of his family (heir/inheritor) to make Claims of the vault will be confiscated and considered as unclaimed. After exhaustive efforts and searching for a direct family member to my late client which came to no avail, I was given the last option to present a next of kin for the claim or have the Vault liquidated and made unserviceable in accordance with existing laws.

Against these conditions, my suggestion is that I will like you to stand as the next of kin. I know you may not be anyway related to my late client by having a common surname with him and the modality I have in place, I can guarantee that if you follow my instructions the vault will be release to you. Mind you that this transaction is risk free; there is no iota of risk connected to this dealing, as I have worked out all modalitites to complete the operation effectively. Once the consignment (Vault) is released to you, we shall divide the content in a split of 50% for me and 50% for you as benefit.

All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next of kin will be secured gradually and forwarded to you as we proceed. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please be kind to get back to my by email if you shall be willing to collaborate so that we can start with the process of claim as soon as possible. Consequent to that, I will officially make a letter of presentation indicating that I have found a next of kin to my late client. Please mind you that we don't need to make undue publicity as this can hamper the process taking into cognizance that we are not quite sure if you're really related. Discretion must be maintained.

If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology. Otherwise please contact me at once to indicate your interest through my private email: jimperfectpvt @ gmail.com to proceed.

Kind Regards,
Barrister Jim Perfect

Dear

Firstly, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.

Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. It may surprise you receiving this letter from me, since there was no previous correspondence between us. My name is Barrister Arnold V. Pamplona, a personal Attorney to Late Eng. David . who died along side his immediate family in an air crash ;Spanair 5022 plane crash (http: //www. dailymail. co.uklnews/ article-2020703/Crew-blamed-Spanair-jet-crash-killed-154.html) which occurred on the 20th of August 2008 en route Madrid to Gran Canarias (Las Palmas), since then all my several enquiries here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, has proved unsuccessful.

Thus I decided to search with his name through the NEW ZEALAND public records; to locate any member of her extended family hence I saw your name. I know you may not be biologically related to him but since you both bear the same surname, I could fix it up.

Before his death, he deposited the Sum of US$6.4M (Six Million, Four Hundred Thousand US Dollars only) with a Bank here in Spain, The Bank has contacted me to present the next of kin for claims, and before the deposit gets confiscated or is reverted to the Spanish government established Bureau for Unclaimed Deposits (BUD)

So I decided to search for any of my late client's relative which has been very difficult for me, as he did not declare any other person, address, partner or relatives in the official paper works of his deposit.

Given this situation, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to my late client Eng. David , since you share the same last name so that the deposited fund will be released to you. With my position as his lawyer, I will now place your name as the next of kin to my late client. I will prepare every relevant document that will assist us, and facilitate the release of the fund to you.

All I require of you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this transaction will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. You can reach me on Tel: on 34 602584545, Fax: 01134935 504 105 Email: arnoldvpamplona.dr @ gmail.com for further clarification. Do get back to me as well even when you are not willing to collaborate with me so as to further my search for another partner. I am on an official duty here in France and shall return to Spain on Thursday.

Yours Sincerely,
Barrister Arnold V. Pamplona

Business Proposal: Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Dear Sir/Madam,

Business Proposal: Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Thank you very much for your time and effort to read my letter. I write due to the urgent need for a capable foreign partner required in this very lucrative and profitable transaction.

I am a banker by profession from Johannesburg In South Africa and currently holding the post of Chief Executive: Regional Management and Strategy at ABSA. a leading bank in Soulh Africa. I have the opportunity of being the personal banker to the below under mentioned business man. I as well handled
transferring the lump Sum of ($35.5 Million Dollars) that belongs to Late Mr & Mrs RODNEY BURROWS (MR) Australian Age: 59 and MARY BURROWS (MRS) Australian Age: 54 who were both victims of the Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and Since then the fund has been in a suspense account awaiting any next of kin. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not quickly remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited and transferred into Government treasury as unclaimed funds.

However, I kept this information (SECRET) confidential within my jurisdiction to enable us submit claims and transfer this fund through trustworthy person whom we shall present to our bank as the BONAFIDE "NEXT OF KIN" to the deceased. I Intend to credit this fund into any of your nominated (designated) offshore bank account for investments. Meanwhile, all domestic arrangements for claims have been put in place awaiting your acceptance to participate. Kindly understand that I could not carry out this on my own as based on the simple facts that I'm a civil servant and excluded from operating foreign account and too, it will raise eyebrows on our side in terms of transfer being staff of the bank. Moreover, this fund belongs to a foreigner and demands same as next of kin to claim it. Hence your contact for successful operation,

Hence. I am inviting you for a business deal where the money can be shared between us in the ratio of 50% for me and 50% for you. The transfer is risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction till the fund is transferred to your account.

Further details of the transfer and text of application form will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mall and you should contact me on +27848916363 or e-mail me via any of my email addresses below: kennedyg.bungane @ yahoo.co.za or kennedybungane.g @ gmail.com.

Dear

I've been waiting patiently tor the opportunity to write someone like you a letter like this - and I'm really excited right now, because today is your day! You see, I saw the name on an official "potential winners" list today. In fact, your name was among those next to a sum of money so massive, that even though I've been prepared for this occasion, I still double checked the figure to make sure it was correct! But there was no mistake. And I really couldn't be happier that this has happened to you:

I saw the name - right next to the amount of AUD$20,000,000.00!

As you can imagine, when exciting events like this occur the first job is to get in contact with you immediately - especially when the date for your first winning opportunity is approaching so fast - to confirm the FACTS behind how you came to be in this amazing position.

A number of thrilling occurrences have conspired in your favour. You will really enjoy this!

The 1st thrilling event that happened for you!
Your profile was AUTHORISED to contend in Group Play for a share of First Prize Pool: AUD$4,000,000.00!

You may know all about Australian 6/45 Lotto's estimated First Prize Pool of AUD$4,000,000.00. This draw has better odds than many lotteries in the world, with on average more than 530,000 winners every single week - so it's one of my personal favourites.

I was searching for some very special candidates to go for this cash, playing in an exclusive group of just 5 players, so I authorised multiple winning chances and punched in the V.I.P. selection criteria to our famous Powertech computer. I was looking for valuable attributes such as determination and diligence - only the best of the best need apply!

The 2nd thrilling event that happened for you!
5 FREE GAMES for your group, contending for First Prize Pool: AUD$16,000,000.00!

With 25 chances to win AUD$4,000,000.00 listed against your group, I could already picture you playing for a share of this huge amount of money, and I had no doubt you would enjoy spending it wisely.

I was smiling, about to authorise your entry papers and payment preference documentation, when I noticed on the screen that Powertech had another surprise up its sleeve ... an award for your group, of FIVE completely free games in Australian 6/45 Superdraw, simply for entering your lotto numbers!

I rubbed my eyes and looked again, but I was not imagining things. The computer had automatically assessed your profile and included you in a select list to receive 5 completely free chances for your group to win a share of Superdraw's estimated First Prize Pool of AUD$16,000,000.00!

So many free AUD$16,000,000.00 games, just for entering! This was amazing - and it occurred to me that you could now win a share of combined estimated First Prize Pools of AUD$20,000,000.00!

Plus there was still MORE cash chances to come your way!

The 3rd thrilling event that happened for you!
EXCLUSIVE PRIZE DRAW - Free Trip to Sydney or AUD$5,000.00 CASH!
There is nothing lucky or random with your free entry to our most exclusive draw - you were among those recommended to receive it personally, by my director of Data Processing & Number Selection Division, Mr Gordon Smith.

Gordon came in this afternoon and handed me the latest list of "Top Tier Candidates We'd Love to Meet". I was both amazed and overjoyed when I saw your name again! This time your superb profile earned you a free entry in our draw to win a Free Trip to Australia to come and see us (or, if you prefer, a payment of AUD$5,000.00 CASH!), that's how your name came to be next to a total of AUD$20,OOO,OOO.OO! Now you have the facts, it's decision time.

Take action today and ... by 19/04/2014 you could be holding a share of MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!

The opportunity is incredible. The decision is simple. Go for the BIG money!

Yours sincerely
Richard Jones, President
Prizemasters International Division

From Mr. Yiu Lung Cheng
Tel: +852-8170-0471

Email: ylcheng @ asia.com
26th February, 2014

Accept my sincere apology for this unsolicited letter to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust but you will realize the need for my action. I have used the opportunity of a friend coming to England to send this letter to you for security reasons as I wanted to be sure my letter was not intercepted here in Hong Kong. My names are Mr. Yiu Lung Cheng, Chief Operating Officer of Wing Lung Bank Ltd, 45 Des Voeux Road Central Hong Kong. I got your contact information's through the New Zealand public records while searching for a last name similar to a late customer's. I am writing you regarding a deceased client of my bank, Engr. Rudd , an Oil Magnate who lived in Hong Kong for twenty-eight years; he died along with his immediate family during the Tsunami catastrophe which occurred December 2004.

Before his demise, he deposited the sum of ($28,980,369.00 (Twenty Eighteen Million, Nine Hundred and Eighty Thousand, Three Hundred and Sixty Nine USD) placed under our Bank Management. The institution being aware of his death have mandated me to present a member of his family (heir/inheritor)or Next of kin to make Claims of his funds with out bank otherwise, it will be forfeited, seized or confiscated by the authorities and reverts to the treasury of the Bank of China as unclaimed. Due to the fact that we operate in accordance with the Hong Kong law, such fortune is automatically bequeathed to the government if there is no heir or Next of kin to the deceased that would surface to claim the fortune within the specified time. However, this law is unjust and inhuman as it often creates an avenue for the top officials of some financial institutions to divert such fortunes for their own selfish use. On that ground, I decided to search for any of my late client's relative which has proved abortive as he did not declare officially any Next of kin or beneficiary.

I am contacting you because you share the same last name with my late client; I know you might not be related but after countless efforts to locate direct relative to the late client and a (3) Three months final notice from the Bank to present a beneficiary to the fund, and failure to meet up with this deadline means the fund will be liquidated to the Bureau as unclaimed fund and that I forbid happening. Against this backdrop. I decided to contact you to join me to put claims on this deposit before it's forfeited to the authorities.

My suggestion to you is. I will like to present you as the Next of Kin and beneficiary to this deposit, since you are both foreign nationals and you share same last name by virtue of my position as the branch manager, I will now place your name as the Next of kin/Beneficiary to the late client and I will prepare the relevant legal documentations that will assist to facilitate the release of the fund to you without any breach of the law.

Note that I have worked out all modalities to complete the transaction successfully, be rest assured that the transaction is 100% legal and risk free. Once the fund is released to you, we shall share in the ratio of 65% for me, 30% for you while remaining 5% will be set aside for any expenses incurred during the cause of securing this deposit. If my proposal is acceptable to you, kindly reply via any of my emails, ylcheng @ asia.com. yCcheng @ accountant.com. or can be reached at all times on my direct telephone number Tel: +85281700471.

Regards Sincerely,
Mr. Y L Cheng

Blake Bawa inheritance scam

View original letter (PDF, 73KB)*
Attn:
This is a personal letter directed to you and I request that it should be treated as such. I am Blake Bawa, a solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr. Peter , who died in a car crash with his immediate family on the 5th of Nov 2002. Since the death of my client in Nov. 2002. I have written several letters to the embassy with an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants / beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have heen to no avail. More so, I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited the sum of 9.8m GBP. The board of directors of the company now adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money within the next 25 official working days or forfeit the money as an abandoned fund. The company had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me but after an investigation in the finance company. I found out that some members of the company wants to divert this fund into their private accounts for their own selfish interest and only want to use the excuse of my inability to look for a relative to achieve their goal.

By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate family. I am very much aware of my client's financial standing and had thought it unprofitable for his funds to be submitted to the government of this country and the finance company where it is lodged. I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be kgally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client, which is legally possible and would be done in accordance with the laws of the land. On this note I decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear the same last name. I was urged to contact you to crave your participation and co-operation. that I may, with your consent, present you to Ihe "trustee" bank as my late client's surviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim at the bank in that capacity us a next of kin of my client, so that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at Nine Million Eight Hundred Thousand British Pounds Stirling only (9.8million) can be paid to you, before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable to the bank where this huge deposit is lodged. Therefore, to facilitate the immediate reprofiling of this fund. you need first to contact me in UK via my email address blakebawa @ live.com and contact telephone number +442070604258, Fax: + 44 207060 4259 signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain your confidence, I will intimate you with the complete detaiIs with directions on how to put up an application to the bank.

However, you will have to assent to an express agreement. which I will forward to you in order to bind us in this transaction. Upon the receipt of your reply. I will send you by fax or E-mail the next step to take. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is 100% risk and hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transfer since I have all vital documents that would be requested by them and that would confer you the legal right to make this claim. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. If this proposal is acceptable by you, get in touch with me through my email address and contact numbers above for better confidentiality and send to me your contact details to enable us discuss further about this transaction and hope you do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you as I require only a solemn confidentiality on this and hope you do understand what confidentiality really means. Give one a call at your earliest convenience.

Solidarity Commission random prize draw scam

View full postal scam (PDF, 648KB)*
Mrs , you have been selected as the only recipient of our annual endowment of NZ$ 25,000.00.

In less than one minute,discover if you are the lucky winner of our selection and if you will receive your NZ$ 25,000.00 within the next two weeks.

Dear Mrs

You think that winning NZ$ 25,000.00 in less than one minute is impossible? And yet ... Every year, the Solidarity Commission of our company attributes an "endowment" to one person selected in our database. This year's endowment: NZ$ 25,000.00.

In 2014, our investments have already provided an "exceptional profit". In the context of solidarity with the least fortunate, we decided as we do every year, to have one person randomly selected by computer receive a part of this profit in the form of an endowment. This year, the winner of our random draw will pocket TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

How were you selected, Mrs
1. - We programmed the computer to randomly select the names of 12 people in our database. You are one of these 12 people!
2. - The computer then selected 12 random numbers among which there is ONE "winning number". You have been attributed one of these 12 numbers!
3. - Finally, under control of a notary, we have randomly distributed these 12 numbers in 12 different envelopes. Today you are holding one of these envelopes!

Up to now, no one knows which of the 12 selected recipients will win

Mrs are you this year's only winner?
Here is what you have to do to find out ...
1. - Take the sealed envelope enclosed. It contains the number you were assigned under control of a notary.
2. - Open it now: it containsYOUR number that may beTHE "winning number".
3. - Now regard below the list of 12 numbers selected by our computer*: the winning number is highlighted.
4. - Compare this winning number to the number you have found in the envelope: if it is the same, Mrs , you have the only winning number of this year's endowment and you will receive the NZ$ 25,000.00 endowment!
Remember: there are TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS at stake. A large sum of money!

Now what happens?
If you confirm that you are indeed in possession of the winning number of this year's endowment, you will be immediately registered in our "Special Wins Account". The cheque for NZ$ 25,000.00 will then be able to be made out in the name of the winner: Mrs

Even so, you may be saying that NZ$ 25,000.00 isn't '"all that much. With today's cost of living, it's true that this is not an immense sum, but if you continue
reading, you will discover how you can amass a lot more. Even with a "modest" sum of NZ$ 25,000.00, could:
1. - Take a trip around the world
or
2. - Live in a 5 star hotel for 3 months
or
3. - Completely redecorate your home
or else
4. - Spoil your children and grandchildren ...

Now let's see how you will be able to multiply your win of NZ$ 25,000.00** by 10, 100 and maybe even by 1000!!!

Along with your cheque for NZ$ 25,000.00, you will receive FREE OF CHARGE a "top secret" document that will enable you to rapidly multiply your endowment by 10, 100 and maybe even by 1000 times.

It will be your turn to enter the select circle of millionaires ...
Every year, we offer the only recipient of our financial endowment a highly confidential document entitled the "Practical Guide to Success".
The Practical Guide to Success was prepared by the most qualified specialists of our company.
It is the result of more than 30 years of experience in the field of finances.
It contains all the secrets, all the "tricks of the trade" that have made our fortune.
It has been revised and printed for you this year and we are pleased to offer it to you FREE OF CHARGE.

It is uncomplicated and will teach you our most closely guarded secrets about how to:
1. - Attract luck and keep it
2. - Procure and multiply additional income
3. - Make your capital grow with no time limits
4. - Repel profiteers and protect your heritage

If last year was difficult for you (money-wise), it is unfortunately very probable that this year will be even worse since we will be subjected to another round of economic and financial upheavals.

Dear Mrs , you must put an end to your account always being in the red!
We sincerely hope that you will be declared winner of this year's annual endowment. In several weeks or at most several months, we are confident that you could be able to write us a letter similar to the one received from Patricia, last year's recipient of the endowment ...

What must you now do, Mrs ?
Fill out, date and sign the Administrative Form to Receive the Endowment Return it to us within 8 days. Within 15 days of its reception, we will send you a letter of commitment.
Do not lose one more day since your future could be at stake ***!
We hope that you will be this year's winner of our computerised random draw and make you happy with our annual endowment of NZ$ 25,000.00.

Sincerely,
General Manager

*** If you do not respond within 8 days, we will be forced to consider that you definitively renounce winning our endowment. In this case, a new random draw will be conducted to attribute the NZ$ 25,000.00 to one of the other 11 people selected.

Date: 12-12-2013

Dear (Name removed), P

My names are Milan San Bravo, attorney-at-law Spain. Actually, I got your contact information through the New Zealand public records while searching for a last name similar to my late client's a business magnate by name Edwin who lived in Spain with his family for about Thirteen years before their accidental death, during the Cyclone Nargis Disaster which occurred in May 2008. However the circumstances and urgency of this claim have prone me to send you this unsolicited mail, which I humbly apologize.

Before the catastrophe; He deposited One Trunk Box/Diplomatic Personal Treasure, containing the sum of $5.8M (five MILLLION, EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS) with a Safe Security Company here in Spain, Because of security and personal reasons he did not disclose the exact content of deposited diplomatic box to the treasure house. As the attorney my late client, the security company has mandated me to present a member of his family (heir/inheritor) to make claims or the vault will be confiscated and taken to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security as unclaimed. After abortive efforts searching for a direct family member which came to no avail, I was given an ultimatum to look for some relative to put up a claim or have the Vault liquidated and made unserviceable in accordance with existing vault/security laws.

Against this backdrop, I do suggest you stand as the next of kin. I know you may not be anyway related to my late client but having a common surname with him and the modalities I have in place, I can guarantee that if you follow my instructions (The rule of laws) the vault will be released to us.

Mind you, this transaction is 100% risk free; there is no atom of risk connected to this business as I have worked out all the modalities to complete the operation effectively. Once the Vault is released to you, we shall divide the content in the ration of 50% for you, 50% for me as our benefit. ($2.9 Million each)

Kindly indicate your response to this letter via my private email address below; you can also call or send me a fax for further clarification. Please be kind to get back to me if you are not willing to collaborate with me so that I can further my search for another partner.

Kind Regards,
Milan San Bravo

Prize Award Commission scam

PRIZE AWARD COMMISSION

Mrs ,
A "savings assistance" has been attributed to you.
In addition, during the first part of determination of the benefit, you can also now claim a total sum of $29.500.00 (or one cheque for $2,950.00 every month for 10 months).

PLEASE FILL OUT ALL THE REQUIRED FORMS AND RETURN EVERYTHING AS RAPIDLY AS POSSIBLE.

Mrs ,

Please pay very careful attention to the content of these documents because they will not be sent a second time!

In cooperation with several financial institutions, we organise special actions to remit cheques and other benefits to certain selected people.

Following the request of a third party, you have been declared the recipient of one of these benefits. It is a substantial allocation because it involves not less than the sum of $29,500.00 that will be paid to the declared recipient. MRS , as one monthly cheque of $2,950.00 for 10 months (10 cheques).

You should also know that, as recipient of a "Savings Assistance Benefit", (i) your "cheque No.1" can be sent rapidly, and (ii) that your claim for the Benefit of $29,500.00 must be made within 8 days. I will return to these two points below.

Mrs this is not a bad joke or a scam: your dossier has really been registered in our offices! I will also explain why you are the recipient of a benefit and where the $29,500.00 (10 cheques) come from.

The commission enjoys relations with influential people who are among the richest in the world. One of these people, "Magister Davids" (I am forbidden from revealing his true name) recently contacted us about you.

Magister Davids seems to know you ... he knows things about you!

He requested that you receive special assistance. Since he is our largest shareholder, we immediately started a procedure to grant you a "Savings Assistance Benefit". You have nothing special to do except follow our instructions because the result is conclusive: Your "Savings Assistance Benefit" has been accepted. Cheque No.1 worth $2,950.00 is ready to be sent.

All I ask is that you fill out the enclosed documents in order to close out your dossier and rapidly send you cheque No.1.

But that's not all! Magister Davids is one of only four people in the world to have access to "certain" numerical data. These people possess the sum total of all knowledge of money markets and have the power to act on them. For example, each of these people can know the winning lottery numbers of their country in advance! I know this is hard to believe. yet there are ironclad proofs to back it up ... it is the unvarnished truth (and is well known in closed circles of "initiates"). They sometimes provide winning numbers just to prove they can do it. It is a "game" for them.

To illustrate: in the United Stated, the winning numbers were given to 100 people and there were 100 winners (no one understands how this was possible). In Germany very recently, a lottery ticket that won 2.5 million euros was not redeemed. Magister Davids was behind all that. He did this simply to prove that he could win any time he wanted to! He did not turn in his winning ticket because he has no need of money: he is a multibillionaire!

This letter is for you, really you,in which Magister Davids proposes to win the next jackpot!

At least $500,000.00 in your bank account from the winning lottery combination!

Do not ask me why he is doing this, I have no idea, If you ever meet him in person, you can ask him face to face. All I know is that his method really works!

Magister Davids only wants other people to be happy. The benefit of $29,500.00 destined for you is from a special fund he made available to us.

You must not miss out on this incredible chance to change your life! He is proposing this chance to be sheltered from need only once!

I have enclosed a confidential form that you must fill out and that we will forward to him directly. Your form contains the code MXGAGNMILLIONS.

It probably goes without saying that this information, as well as the benefit you will receive is highly confidential. You must at all costs avoid speaking about it, otherwise you will attract jealousy and envy!

Please respond as rapidly as possible. I have just spoken to Magister Davids on the telephone and he said he must have your response very rapidly because the next jackpot draw is imminent!

Stiller & Manson inheritance scam

Stiller & Manson
Trust company tasked with the payment of inheritances and dividends
14.01.2014

Subject: Your inheritance of $ 50,478.41

Dear Mrs ,

Today we have important news for you that will change your life. For 30 years, Stiller & Manson has been the trusted partner of its clients for the execution and payment of inheritances, dividends or varied financial transactions of substantial value. We are completely bound by strict directives concerning intercontinental financial transactions. Our work is thus verified and guaranteed to the fullest extent possible and nothing is left to chance.

Our clients are transnational corporations and rich "aristocrats"-throughout Europe who task us with the the payment of their dividends, but also the liquidation of their assets and the accomplishment of their last wishes, in other words executing their last will and testa-ment. The latter reason is why I am contacting you today, Mrs . You are one of the beneficiaries of the inheritance of several million dollars from one of our clients!

The departed benefactor who wished to remain anonymous made his fortune in the IT field, primarily hardware and software. Deep down, he loved to tinker with computers. He took this passion to the grave, as I will explain below. Since our client had no next of kin but was a social activist, in his twilight years he wanted to create a computer programme using a complex process and taking a number of social criteria into account in order to select a number of people throughout the world with whom his fantastic fortune would be shared.

His purpose was to give a financial "shot in the arm" to people who have endured life's hardships and thereby donating a bit of happiness he enjoyed in his life.

Here it is again in black and white since there is no doubt: you are one of these people selected, Mrs . Absolutely! You are one of the heirs that our client's computer programme named as beneficiary!

Believe it or not. Mrs . the share of the inheritance destined for you is nothing less than $ 50,478.41!

First off, congratulations Mrs ! I hope you realise what this unexpected financial windfall could mean. The money is ready to be paid. Nevertheless, you can undoubtedly understand that as sworn executors of estates, vye must conclude several formalities before transferring the inheritance of $ 50,478.41 to you.

We have prepared everything for you on the enclosed form 3.43a "Declaration of acceptance of inheritances and donations". Please fill out this form completely and do not forget to sign it. Without your signature, we unfortunately cannot pay your share of the inheritance.

I have enclosed an excerpt from our client's testament (this was his wish). You can read exactly what drove him to distribute his inheritance in such an unusual way. After reception and conclusive verification of your documents, we will order the immediate payment of your share of the inheritance. Please indicate how you would like to receive this payment (bank transfer, cheque or cash) in the enclosed form 3.43a.

Please return the documents before the deadline of 10 days so that we can rapidly take all steps required for payment.

While awaiting your response,

Sincerely,
Henry Manson
Partner, Stiller & Manson

Angelique Guardian Angel, clairvoyant

Bravo and congratulations for the cheque you have won! Please read further...
Your "Sacred Guardian Angel", who will soon take you under his "protective wings" has again spoken. But BEFORE giving you the exact date, I have something
very important to tell you!

An extraordinary event happened after his last visit...

Your guardian angel drew your face on the wall with red chalk and I knew then and there that I had to write to you immediately. I must get ready to carry out your 3 very important Actions IMMEDIATELY and absolutely FREE OF CHARGE!

This document is from your Guardian angel, drawn on the wall opposite my desk that I always look at. I see it constantly and it has penetrated deeply in me like it was seeking protection in me. I have to say honestly that I have not had this kind of feeling for another person for many years. Maybe you do not know, but most of the objects that surround us say many things about the present, the past, feelings and even the people who live with them. It's something like a "Psychic Fingerprint" that explains the past life and reveals the future. A clairvoyant like myself can sometimes read these signs, feel them, decode them and understand them.

I saw your face and I sensed the Celestial Order from the Beyond: I had to write to you immediately to tell you what I saw. Many things made me happy, but some also troubled me ... I saw your Psychic Fingerprint in your image, so many important things that I immediately cancelled all my appointments so I could write to you today.

I very clearly felt that the life you will lead very soon will have nothing to do with the one that is now bearing so heavily on you...

Angele and Angelina, clairvoyants

2 days ago, late at night ... A person you know very, well revealed a (incredible) secret ABOUT YOU, that could change your life! This is as sure as the sun rises every morning!

"I was almost sure ", was the whisper we heard. "This person will win a lot of money at games of chance during this period. Something like this has not happened until today! With the best intentions, I cannot understand why ... "

This is from a conversation we had yesterday evening with an astrologer friend and this conversation was about you, Mrs. (name removed)!

She was in our office and we were having a friendly relaxed discussion. We looked at our friend and asked,filled with hope: "Why are you so sure that this person is not already rich?" She answered with a note of deception in her voice: "We have already communicated but today I have heard nothing. If you had won a large amount of money 1 would have been told about it and I would now be reassured".

While she was speaking, she removed a thick folder with sheets of paper contailling symbols, notes, images and numbers ... We looked at the notes and realised that they were items our friend used to write to YOU.

Angele and I were unable to discern any major anomaly, just a few shadowy zones we attributed to the technical limits of modern astrology.

She continued: "You know that being "almost" right is of little use to me. Could you help me? I want so much to help this deserving person who merits being loved. You have worked for years on a method that allows your astrological predictions to be detailed and refined. "

She continued: "I suppose that only celebrities and VIPs ask for your help. " We answered: "You should know that we have helped many people without money who really need our help, without regard for their social and financial situation ... "

Then she took out five sheets of paper covered with notes and calculations that concerned YOU, and said: "Please read this and tell me what you think. "We gladly gave our opinion because it concerned you, .

After she left and I was alone with Angele, we started working right away even though it was already 11 pm. We made an incredible discovery: we were totally stupefied by the sudden planetary alignment in your astral sky and by the intense vibrations we felt. We now know why our astrologer friend spoke of your case with such urgency.

Yes, Mrs. , we realised that you are on the threshold of an extraordinary period of your existence!

It will LAST FOR 60 DAYS and starts next Saturday!

In no case must you miss out on this opportunity. We are not "more or Less" preparing for this but are reaLLy getting ready! .

Money worries and other similar problems are not unavoidable fatalities. Man was created to be happy and satisfied, and to live in harmony with nature. This is why we decided TO HELP YOU! We are genuinely outraged that principles as simple as these are not universally accessible.

YOU COULD PROFIT FROM THIS VERY FAVOURABLE PERIOD OF 60 DAYS, ESPECIALLY FOR WINNING A LARGE SUM OF MONEY!

We would like to start with this. Afterwards, if you grant us your confidence, we will tell you in detail what could be in store for you.

We verified, extended and further defined the classical astrological predictions our friend made about your future. We did this by using a method that has proven its absolute infallibility for years: THE EXACT POSITION OF THE MOON ON THE DAY OF YOUR BIRTH!

Using this method provided a precise representation from your unconscious and what we call the "symboLic of the unconscious" .

HERE IS HOW WE WILL PROCEED!

We have enclosed a document with this letter confirming that you can win $ 29,400.00 if you return your "ACCEPTANCE FORM FOR PAYMENT OF $ 29,400.00" before the deadline, and your> > SPECIAL MILLIONAIRE COUPON No. 173 791 «. It is to be attached where indicated and possesses a special "magnetic emanation" for which only we two can interpret the effects.

We will then reveal to you the method with which you will FINALLY enjoy success in all areas of life!

ATTENTION, we have seen that you will have more financiaL success during this period of 60 days than in the next 15 years!

You can finally express this dream you cherish and that could perhaps come true in the very near future. "You are returning your ''ACCEPTANCE FORM FOR PAYMENT OF $ 29,400.00". Your> > SPECIAL MILLIONAIRE COUPON No. 173 791 < < will allow you to receive a vety special envelope in your name. You will see that all the money is for you. . .! "

You will be able to give a new and marvellous impetus to your life. You will soon be able to purchase those things you have longed for when passing before window displays of luxury boutiques. You also will have the right! We will give YOU our moral support for this, we give YOU our word of honour.

We have set aside 5 days to deal with your case uninterruptedly and your symbolic "golden numbers". Please do not forget to return your "ACCEPTANCE FORM FOR PAYMENT OF $ 29,400.00" today. Take the first step on the road to happiness!

Sincerely,

P.S.: Before forgetting, we have another surprise for you! Our friend insisted that we offer a large part of YOUR cosmic-planetary study at no cost and we agreed. You will also receive a marvellous surprise you can keep forever.

IMPORTANT: The $ 29,400.00 are waiting to be given away so answer today. We cannot keep this money without awarding it!

Floating funds from attorney Jose Maria Martinez

I received a letter in the post from a "Jose Maria Martinez". The letter explained that they had discovered floating funds amounting to the sum of €8,600,000.00 in a dormant account. They were unable to locate the next of kin or family of the person who owned the account, so notified me about these funds as we had the same surname (both the deceased party and I). They proposed that they and I share 50% of the money once the transaction has been completed. "Jose Martinez" purports to be an attorney for Hispan in Spain. Email addresses associated to this person are: martinez jose m4 @ gmail com and jose maria martinez @ hispan attorney com

Inheritance scam

From Mrs. Wang LiLi Zaizi.

My Mobile Number-- +601116354082
FAX NUMBER: +60321784344 OR +60321784911
Email: zzzs77777 @ gmail.com

Dear,

I am Mrs Wang Lili Zaizi, I am the Administrative director at a Vault ofa Financial & Security Institute here in Malaysia. I am contacting you based on a fmancial opportunity I discovered here in our banks Vault. It's about an abandoned sum of 45.7m us dollars (Forty Five million seven hundred thousand united state dollars) in our safety deposit vault, that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr ,a citizen of your country who died along with his entire family on 19th January 2006 in a ghastly car accident Here in Malaysia. Our banking policy can only allow the release of such funds to a benefactor through an application as next of kin to the deceased. After his death, the bank has been expecting a possible beneficiary from your country, but no luck, this institute has exploited all its ethical possibilities in other to contact his possible relation or inheritor, but no success. I have made my own research with the help of a private investigator, it is my knowledge that this man has been leaving in Malaysia for the past 22yrs and has never returned back home. I also learnt that his wife and 3year old daughter died with him during this accident. I'm 110% sure that no one is aware of the existence of this funds.

However, because ofthe international financial crises, a lot ofreform has been made within the Malaysian Financial system, this includes the new law on succession/claims which indicates a duration in which such inheritance could be tolerated. The Bank of Malaysia has mandated our institute to release the funds to the possible inheritor, Failure to respond to this ultimatum would legally allow the Bank of Malaysia confiscate these funds as unclaimed estate (Which of course would go straight to the Government's pocket)

It is therefore upon all this discovery that I have decided to contact you because you're from the same country with the deceased. I want you to know that I am a senior member of this office. As an insider, I am equipped with all classified secret information regarding the release of this funds .I would be dedicated to making sure that I feed you with all possible documentation and information required for the approval and release of these funds.

Upon your acceptance to cooperate, I agreed that 40% of this money will be for you, 60% for us. If you cannot send a fax please send all your contact details, all your contact phone and fax numbers, your email through sms/text message from your mobile to my my mobile +601116354082.

Please note that I have ONLY discussed this with my husband, please call me as soon as you receive this letter so that I would be able to inform you on how this could be concluded. In conclusion, it's my concern to demand your ultimate honesty, co-operation and confidentiallty to enable us conclude this transaction. I GUARl\NTEE that this process would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that would legally protect you from any breach of law.

Best Regards.
w.l.z
Mrs Wang LiLi Zaizi.
NOTE: I PROMISE YOU THAT YOU WILL NOT SPEND ANY MONEY UNTILL WE FINALISE THIS TRANSACTION BUT YOU MIGHT BE ASKED TO COME TO MALAYSIA TO SIGN THE FINAL RELEASE DOCUMENTS

RE: INHERITANCE FINAL CLAIM NOTIFICATION

Dear (removed)

It has been a long search for your contact, probably due to change of address. I have tried since May 2011 to contact you by post to inform you of my intention to request the execution of the final will and testament of Mr. (removed). This is because I have you on my records as a likely next of kin (second cousin) to his estate and finances which was valued to a substantial amount. Approximately Six million United States Dollars ($6,000,000.00) is held in administration with an Offshore Bank here In the United Kingdom.

My Client died as a result of the 2007 disaster in southern China while working as a contractor to the Chinese government. Prior to his death, I was not only his paid counsel but also a close friend and confidante. At the time of his death Evans was 64 years old, single and had no issues.

Should you wish to participate in this claim, do not reply by post, but rather contact my office within 14days in confidence by email, fax or phone quoting the reference above. If i do not hear from you within this period, you will not be contacted again. This is a once in a lifetime chance to lay claim to this fortune before it gets transferred to the British government coffers. My contact details are below and I am available 9am - 8pm Monday to Friday to take any inquiries regarding this. My chambers will undertake all transfer of paper work and file the claims on your behalf.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
Yours Sincerely
