This scammer claims he is an employee of HSBC in Malaysia. He tells me it would be “hard for you to believe, we stand to gain 7.2 million USD between us in a matter of days.” Strange though this may seem to him, I get emails every day telling me I am going to be sent millions of dollars.
Do I believe them. Of course I don’t – and neither should you. This scammer isn’t a dishonest employee of HSBC – he’s just dishonest. He doesn’t want to share any money with you, he wants to take money from you by charging you fees.
This is a personal email directed to you for your consideration alone, I
request that it remain and be treated as such only. Please bear with me for
now and do not ask my name. I am a banker with HSBC here in Malaysia
I have an interesting business proposal for you that will be of immense
benefit to both of us. Although this may be hard for you to believe, we
stand to gain 7.2 million USD between us in a matter of days. Please grant
me the benefit of doubt and hear me out. I need you to signify your interest
by replying to this email..
Most importantly, I will need you to promise to keep whatever you learn from
me between us even if you decide not to go along with me. I will make more
details available to you on receipt of a positive response from you.
Warm regards from Malaysia
