Another Scam.....

as you can see its definitely a scam so dont fall for it, ok. :)

Good day to you,

My name is Sgt. Derek Bittman of The 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines, I am serving in Iraq (Mosul) and I will need your assistance to take care of some financial matters for me and of course you will be adequately compensated.

I have to urgently evacuate money the sum of $20,000,000.00 (Twenty million US dollars) clean legal notes and all in US$100 bills out of here to a safe place, having found a secure way to do so.

5 million US dollars (US$ 5,000,000) will be your share for rendering this assistance.

Some money in various currencies were discovered concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunitions at a location near one of Saddam,s old palaces during a rescue operation several months ago and it was agreed by the few of us present that the money be shared amongst us, though this was an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we are taking with our lives in this hellhole.

Mounds of U.S. money found in Iraq - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Stash of money found in Baghdad

The above figure was given to me as my share and for several reasons, concealing this volume of cash here has been a big problem/source of distraction to me. I have now found a temporary solution with the help of a lady who is working with an international organization here, She does not know the real contents of the packages used in concealing the funds and must not know rather believes that the packages belong to an Asian American who died in an air raid and before giving up, he trusted me to hand the packages as it is to his business associate in Europe.
One request I will like that you keep this information to yourself. Should you have any reasons to reject this offer, please destroy this mail as any leakage will be too bad for us. I want to have a very peaceful retirement life after my service here and I rely so much on this fortune to provide that for me.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, I await your urgent e-mail so we can discuss more.

Semper Fi.
Sgt. Derek Bittman

Hsbc Bank

Subject: HSBC BANK

Good day,

I am Walter Brown, staff of International Private Banking at HSBC Bank. I am
contacting you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he placed under
our banks management few years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep
the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the
information you come by as a result of this mail.

I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of
this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I
believe would be of interest to you. In 2001, the subject matter came to our
bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division. He
informed us that he had a financial portfolio of Forty Eight Million Three
Hundred And Fifty Thousand United States Dollars ($48,350,000.00 USD) ,which
he wished to have us turn over(invest) on his behalf. I was the officer
assigned to his case, I was made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as
the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially
given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous
occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider
various growth funds with prime ratings. The favored route in my advise to
customers is to start by assessing data on 6000 traditional stocks and bond
managers and 2000 managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, We
spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our
first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point
at over ten million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full
potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on

In mid 2002, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an
urgent investment requiring cash payments in here in the United Kingdom. He
directed that I liquidate the funds and deposit it with a security firm here in
London. I informed him that HSBC would have to make special arrangements to
have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have
to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory
charges. He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained
to him the complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement across
boarders has become especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted
my affiliate in here in London and made the funds available to the security
firm. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise
instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited at the London based
security consultancy firm, Corporate Securities Co. Corporate Securities Co is
a specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth
individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products or
undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. This small and
highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and
well-connected organizations. In line with Instructions, the money was
deposited with Corporate Securities Co. The deceased told me he wanted the
money there in anticipation of his arrival from Norway later that week. This
was the last communication we had, this transpired around 25th June 2002. In
June last year, we got a call from Corporate Securities Co informing us that
the activity of that particular portfolio. This was an astounding position as
far as I was concerned, given the fact that I managed the private banking
sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit at Corporate Securities
Co, and I could not understand why the deceased had not come forward to claim
his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate the deceased. I immediately passed
the task of locating him to the internal investigations department of HSBC.
Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently our client was
dead. A person who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack
in Cannes, South of France.

We were soon enough able to identify the body and cause of death was confirmed.
The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of
kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate.
If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our
services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from
conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the
field of private banking opening an account with us means no one will know of
its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers
and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to
depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself,
ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they
nominate next of kin.

Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in
most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; the deceased died without a
testament .In line with our internal processes for account holders who have
passed away, we instituted our own Investigations in good faith to determine
who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past
months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our private
investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem. It is this
investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your details as a
possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity dictates that I am the
only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the
results of the investigation. What this means, you being the last batch of
names we have considered, is that our dear late fellow died with no known or
identifiable family member. This leaves me as the only person with the full
picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the
late beneficiary of the deposit.

According to practice, Corporate Securities Co will by the end of this financial
year broadcast a request for statements of claim to HSBC, failing to receive
viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back to HSBC. This
will result in the money entering the HSBC accounting system and the portfolio
will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. This will not
happen if I have my way. What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical
practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the
banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world

The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those
who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have
begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. I alone
have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I
instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as
far as HSBC is concerned, the transaction with our late customer concluded when
I sent the funds to corporate securities, all outstanding interactions in
relation to the file are just customer services and due process. Corporate
Securities Co has no single idea of what the history or nature of the deposit.
They are simply awaiting; instructions to release the deposit to any party that
comes forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of
money trying to track this mans family; they have investigated for months and
have found no family. The investigation has come to an end. My proposal; you
share similar details to the late fellow; I am prepared to place you in a
position to instruct Corporate Securities Co to release the deposit to you as
the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to
share the money with you in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the
next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds
50/50.I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that
would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the
deposit. I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you within a
few days. I will simply inform the bank of the final closing of the file
relating to the deceased I will then officially communicate with Corporate
Securities Co and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these two
things: all is done. The alternative would be for us to have Corporate
Securities Co direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder. This
way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money from
Corporate Securities Co. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions. I am
aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest
in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be
vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this
message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you
do not approve of my proposal.

You may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of
comparable situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal
and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you
to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move.
Such opportunities only come ones' way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this
chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These
chances wont pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will
not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy
me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new
opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth
undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from
you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows
of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted
you into the center of relevance in my life. Let share the blessing. If you
find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this same email account.
If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a
conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official
channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not
want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I wouldn’t you
contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through the
numbers I will provide for you and also through this email address. I do not
want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines
as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line
with our Total Quality Management Policy.

Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a family
man, I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of
fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is
nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of
gold. This is the one truth I have learnt from my private banking clients. Do
not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a
meeting, soon.

I await your response.

Walter Brown.
