This email with the subject "HONGKONG BANKING ." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 24 May 2006 17:39:21 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "MR.PETER TUNG PO" <>, although it may have been spoofed.


My name is Mr. Peter Tung Po, a member of Independent Committee of Eminent
Persons (ICEP), Hong Kong. ICEP is charged with the responsibility of
finding bank accounts in Hong Kong belonging to non-Hong Kong Citizen, which
has remained dormant since World War II.
 It may interest you to know that in July of 1997, the Hong Kong Banker's
Association published a list of dormant accounts originally opened by
non-Hong Kong citizens. These accounts had been dormant since the end of
World War II (May 9, 1945).Most belonged to Holocaust victims. 

The continuing efforts of the Independent Committee of Eminent Persons
(ICEP) have since resulted in the discovery of additional dormant
accounts-54,000 in December, 1999. The published lists contain all types of
dormant accounts, including interest-bearing Savings Accounts, Security
Accounts, Safe Deposit Boxes, Custody Accounts, and Non-interest-bearing
transaction Accounts. The Claims Resolution Tribunal (CRT) handles
processing of all claims on accounts due non-Hong Kong citizens. 

A dormant account of ORDNER ADELE with a credit balance of 45,000,000 US
dollar plus accumulated interest was discovered by me. The beneficiary was
murdered during the holocaust era, leaving no WILL and no possible records
for trace of heirs. The Claims Resolution Tribunal has been mandated to
report all unclaimed funds for permanent closure of accounts and transfer of
existing credit balance into the treasury of Hong Kong Government as
provided by the law for management of assets of deceased beneficiaries who
died interstate (living no wills). 
Being a top Executive at ICEP, I have all secret details and necessary
contacts for claim of the funds without any hitch. The funds will be banked
in Europe, being a safe haven for funds and we can share the funds and use
in investment of our choice. Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a
Foreigner to HELP claim the funds. 

All that is required is for you to provide me with your details for
processing of the necessary Legal and Administrative claim documents for
transfer of the funds to you. 
 Kindly provide me with your full name, address, and telephone/fax. I will
ensure that the Funds is transferred to a secure, numbered account in your
name outside HONGKONG, but in Europe of which you will be capable of
accessing the funds gradually and transferring to your country and other
banks of choice in the world. My share will be 75%percent and your share is
25% percent of the total amount.

The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has put funds in Escrow awaiting
submission of valid claims for necessary disbursement.  Due to security
reasons, reply to me via email only. You may reply to me securely on through

proposal via my email address will be highly appreciated.
