Letter received in the mail, stating that an oil magnate and his family died in tragic circumastances in Hong Kong in 2003, leaving $23.7 million plus in the bank. As there is no next of kin, the money is at risk of being absorbed by the Government, officials and institutions in Hong Kong. As my husband bears the same surname as the deceased oil magnate, he can begin legal action to recoup the money. Dennis Chan is more than happy to commence proceedings and see the matter through as long as he receives 55% of the amount we receive 40% and the remaining 5% goes to charity.

I have googled the so called deceased name it does not exist, I googled the scammers name it does exist, I did not get to google the bank. It is my next task.

A letter came in the post. Some Business magnate has died and has the same second name as I. 45% to me, 45% to Edward and 10% to charitable causes. Clearly a scam as soon as we opened the letter. Edpingwok@accountant.com
