Hang Seng Bank Ltd
Sai Wan Ho Branch
171 Shaukiwan Road
Hong Kong.
Good Day,
I sincerely hope that this letter will not come to you as a surprise or an
embarrassment since we neither knew each other before nor had any neither
previous correspondence/ contact. Let me start by introducing myself. I am
Mr. Ming Yang, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan
Ho Branch, Hong Kong. I have an obscured business suggestion for you.
I am here-by seeking your service in giving a clear research and
feasibility studies on areas I could invest on. Your services will be paid
for, and you will be a partner, if your recommendation is accepted.
As a bank employee, I can not operate any personal investment till I am
retired and with the Anti-corruption Bill passed in Hong Kong; it is risky
for a fixed income earner to own any huge amount of money in Hong Kong or
any foreign country. It is then advisable to invest in any foreign land
secretly and patiently wait for retirement.
You are to handle everything personally and with utmost confidentiality,
if my proposal is acceptable as I may not be able to travel down, since I
must obtain an official clearance before leaving this territory.
Note importantly that, this is a confidential proposal and must be treated
as such because the banking sector has commenced probing of all senior
banking officials that have served in the past and presently in service.
For security purpose, due to telecom interception in Hong Kong, I shall
not accept or acknowledge any phone call. Only fax messages/emails would
be treated in relation to this proposal but not without this code; [CODE
NO: ZX1-121]. Should you be further interested, I would prefer you to
reach me on this email address: ( and finally after
that I shall provide you with more details of this operation.
Kind Regards
Mr. Ming Yang
