Scam Email from William Cheung

Hello Friend,

I know it is really hard to trust someone on the internet now are days, due to the numerious things that are happening on the web. But you also have to understand that the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk – and to act.

You absolutely have nothing to be afraid of as I will cover all the expenses required to process the paper work here in Hong Kong in order to make the transaction legal. Your position as my partner is to sign all the necessary document that will be forwarded to you and also open an online offshore account in any of the bank in europe that has the same telex type with my bank, so that the said funds can be transferred there once you have been made the beneficiary.

Don't be afraid to tread new ground my friend because progress always involves risks and the only risk I see here is the time you are going to spend in reading my emails, opening the offshore account and signing the documents that will in turn make you the beneficiary to my late client's deposited funds with millions in Dollar sign.

Even if I do not know to what extent you are familiar with sudden event, the fact remains that every one need some one to be successfull, I will advice you sitdown and consider my proposal carefully before turning it down because our greatest weakness lies in giving up.

Await a response from you at your earliest convenience.

Warm Regards,
William Cheung| 执行董事兼个人银行业务主管
