I get loads of these, they normally start 'My dear'. It's someone pretending to be from a financial institution in Singapore. Does it say they want to send you money?

 

Scam, don't reply.

Dear Friend,
 
I am Mrs. Chng Sok Hui, CFO , Chief Financial Officer of DBS Group, and a member of the DBS Executive Committee, DBS Bank Limited, Hong Kong.
 
I will appreciate your response very much. I have outlined the detailed story of how this transaction came about and also, I got your email address discretely when I was in search of someone to assist me conclude this transaction. Please read carefully. Before his demise, our client Late Mr. Roger Agnelli who owned Brazilian mining giant Vale, was an international businessman. Late Mr. Roger Agnelli made a numbered fixed deposit with a value of Fifty million United State Dollars only in my branch. Mr. Roger Agnelli and his family of four, died in a plane crash. You can check the details here [ http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/03/roger-agnelli-family-members-die-brazil-plane-crash-160320090505123.html ]
 
The last time he was at my office he confided in me that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, fifty million United State Dollars only is lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it as there is neither next of kin nor any survival of his family. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 6 years and Nine months the funds will revert to the ownership of the Chinese 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 late Mr. Roger Agnelli so that you will be able to receive his funds.
 
LINE OF ACTION:
 
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary documentation that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Roger Agnelli and beneficiary to claim the funds, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full names and Address so that my attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of king, my attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for you to be able to claim the funds. There is no risk involved at all in this endeavor, as we are going adopt a legitimate method and my attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
 
What I require from you is your honest co-operation and I assure you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law. Keep this confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate this proposition, I have offered you. All documents to back up these funds shall be made available to you, as soon as I receive your reply, I shall let you know what is required of you.
 
Regards from,
Chng Sok Hui, CFO.

These type of communications  have been around for decades.  I can remember letters being received years ago that were very similar.

We could do with some help from you.

Its a scam, delete and move on .....

 

Before seeing the text, I thought it was going to be either:

a) The '419' / 'advance fee fraud, scam (which it is), or

b) the 'money mule' scam.

 

For a) they hint at a private transaction, and of course you have to pretend to be a relative, (so you think twice about going to the police if you fall for it!). People are enticed by the big windfall promised, but there are costs to be paid, the lawyers fee, customs charges (when it is a trunk of gold or briefcase of diamonds(, paperwork to be files with courts (and thus needing to be  paid for), which is the 'advance fee' you pay, and the money never arrives, only requests for more fees.... hence 'advance fee fraud'.

The good news for the poor souls who get conned is that at least they don't risk a criminal record.......

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance-fee_scam

 

 

b) is more insidious. It is usually dressed up as a job offer, acting as an agent for an international firm. Your job? to receive remittances, and pass them on, but you get to deduct a percentage as your fee. Sounds marvelous .......

Until the door knock happens. The money is proceeds of crime (often fraud, but sometimes not if it is 'just' money laundering!).

When it is fraudulent funds, when they trace the person conned, they have to repay the while sum, not just their 'commission'. The person next in the chain may be another mule in the chain, or may be the criminal, who you can be sure will be long gone when the money is demanded back by the defrauded party....

It may not be fraudulent funds, it may just be money laundering ....... the criminals accepting the loss of the 'commission' as the price of doing business...... again, when the money laundering gets investigated, the person being conned is left 'holding the can'.

She didn't email you, Sandy. A scammer has bastardised an email address that could be similar to this lady's but they're trying to con you and get money from you.

 

I doubt if you have any connections with Singapore?

I got three similar ones yesterday! It must have been scam email day for someone.

 

This email has several characteristics that are typical in these sorts of scams The scammers try and give it credibility by claiming to be a real person whose existence you can check. They aren't really them of course. Another typical ploy, as in this one, is to give a link to media reports of the death of the person whose money they claim to be wanting to give you. The death is real enough, the rest of the story is load of baloney.

 

Another common give-away that it's a scam is that they send it from an email address that appears to be the genuine business email of the Bank CEO, so it can be checked on public sources, but ask you to reply to a different address which definitely isn't a bank corporate email. The bank email address it purports to come from is spoofed of course, it didn't really come from there.

These [email protected] are a rinse and repeat operation, along with the telephone ones.  had Carla from Microsoft yesterday, offering to remote access and fix the bad packets coming from my  computer,  sadly for that scammer I run Linux.🤣 

We could do with some help from you.

Scammer “Your PC has a virus”,

 

Me: ”OK, which one? the laptop or the desktop?“

repeat for “which OS?”, where they will always say Windows…..

Then onto which release, then which build, and finally “I don’t think so, of all the machines you’ve chosen the stand-alone which isn’t connected to the internet

 

(I work on the principle that while I’m wasting their time, they aren’t [email protected] someone else!)

I am just ignoring the emails even thought she has asked me for £500 and her " friend" in the UK will also make a deposit,   Each email asks if this email is still active!

 

Her story was to do with   someone killed in a plane crash along with his family and there was no other relatives left so I was chosen! lmao 🤣
