From: "Simon Wong" <>

This email with the subject "I AWAIT YOUR RESPONSE.." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 10 Dec 2006 12:55:34 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Simon Wong" <>, although it may have been spoofed.


I am Mr. Simon Wong credit officer of the Dah Sing Bank Ltd.I have a
concealed business suggestion for you.  Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our
client General. Hassan Karimu who was with the Iraqi forces and also
business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a
value of Twenty millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only
in my branch.

Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war. Again
after the war another notification was sent and still no response came
from him. We later find out that the General and his family had been
killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home. After further
investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Hassan Karimu did not
declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of
his bank deposit.

And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one
except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Twenty 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 to the laws of my country at
the expiration seven (7) 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 Gen. Hassan Karimu so that you will be able
to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall
come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the
necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen. Hassan
Karimu all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide
me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his
job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill
in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter
of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will
be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we
are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the
necessary documents.

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning
this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank
account we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me, 25% for you and 5% for
any expenses incurred during the course of this operation. Should you be
interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy
communication, you can write me via this email box and i will provide you with more details of this
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
Kind Regards
Simon Wong
