I received this email from Mr. Tang Kam Sun titled Funds Investment and Management Placement. Tang Kam Sum has a private investor with $65 million burning a hole in his pocket and would like my help investing it.
Of course, this is all a scam designed to solicit a response from you at which point, you’ll be asked for personal information and bank account numbers so that they can transfer the $65 million into your account (or so they would like you to believe).
Do NOT respond to such emails. There is no such thing as an investor that is going to randomly pick an email and trust them to invest their money. Below is a copy of the email:
