Mr. Song Lile.
This is the second email received from Song Lile. His email sounds true and persuasive. Here’s what his long email says:
Thank you very much for your response, and your interest in this transaction, I, Mr. Song Lile, appreciate the fact that you are ready to assist me in executing this project; I will like us to handle this transaction based on trust and honesty. Due to this issue on my hands now, it became necessary for me to seek your assistance.
Before I begin, let me quickly give you first hand information about the transaction. As you are already aware, I am Mr. SONG LI LE the credit officer in Hang Seng Bank Ltd., Hong Kong . Before the U.S and Iraqi war one of our customer Colonel Sadiq Uday who was with the Iraqi forces and also a big time businessman, made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that the Colonel along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
After further investigation it was discovered that Colonel Sadiq Uday did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. So, Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 6 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Colonel Sadiq Uday so that you will be able file for claim to receive the funds.
You should not have anything to worry about, I will do everything legally required to ensure that the project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking, you have my word. Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I, Mr. Song Lile, want to remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up. If you work seriously, the entire transaction should be over in a couple of days.
You should note that this project is highly capital intensive, this is why I have to be very careful; I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before, but I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we need to execute this project.
As part of the modalities/plans on ground to ensure a hitch free transaction, I am already in contact with a foreign corresponding online bank; I intend that you open an account in your name in this foreign bank. The money would be transferred in your name to the account which you will open in the bank for both of us, this is the best way, I have found, it will protect us from my bank. The reason why I want you to set up a new account in this bank for the transfer is because the bank is our corresponding bank and it has the same telex type with my bank; it will make the transfer be seen as in-house transfer and protect us from the attention of any monetary bodies or raise any red flag. I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude. So you should listen to my instructions and follow them religiously. Also you have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name as my bank will be aware that it is from me, this is where I need you.
I, Mr. Song Lile, will obtain a certificate of deposit from this my bank, it will be issued in your name, and this will make you the bonafide beneficial owner of the funds. After this, the money will be banked online for both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into our respective home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the legal right. Before I commence, I will need you to send me your full names, current address, age sex occupation and a copy of any form of your identification (Driver’s license Work ID or International passport) for documentation purpose. I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person.
As soon as I get these from you, I will commence the paper work. I hope you will understand why I need all these, the money in question is big and I want to ensure that I know you well and avoid future impersonation by some one else before I proceed to give you all the details to commence the project, I will send you the certificate of deposit that was issued to Col. Sadiq Uday as at when the money was deposited. I will also send the name and contact details of the offshore bank so that you can commence communication with them.
Upon the successful conclusion of this transaction, I will like to come over to your country to invest my own share (70%) in your country, and you will as well assist me in managing the investment, I am quite certain about that; let me know the kind of business that is viable in your country.
Please reply soonest.
This is the 3rd email received from Song Lile. In this email he said:
I want to let you know more about myself so that you will be rest assured of whom you are transacting with. I am married with two children Liu my daughter and Lee my son; I have sent you my family picture now for you to see. My address is #1, Fortune Garden, 20 Wing Ting Road, Ngan Chi Wan, Kln, Hong Kong. i have lived here for the last 13years.
For your information I will be coming over to your country for my share of the funds, once the funds credit your account at the bank that we will be using for this transaction.
Please endeavor to keep this transaction confidential, do not discuss it with anybody, I, Song Li, have a 22year career with my bank (Hang Seng) and I don’t intend to ruin all that. I really cant wait till the funds leave my bank because I have not been able to sleep nor eat properly for the past days. Attach to this email is my work ID and my family pictures for your reference.
Well if I may remind you again, you are required to send at least a copy of your Driver’s License “or” a copy of your International Passport via an attachment to my email. Besides, it is this copy of your Driver’s License or International Passport that will be used by the Attorney to have all the necessary documentations perfected.
The most important issue is that I want to be sure I am transacting with the correct person, I believe these information would be enough to confirm your interest.
Beware of these scams! They are designed to drain you of your money and personal information. Thanks again Jal Lin for sharing this information with everyone!
