This scammer tells me to treat his emails “as Urgent”. I’ve taken him at his word and added it to this blog immediately.
I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that this scammer most certainly isn’t an executive director of the Hang Seng Bank – or any other bank. If he was, sending out thousands of emails to random people offering them money would be a good way of making himself unemployed very quickly.
This is a scammer, who is hoping to take money from you by charging you fees. Ignore him.
