Email Hoax...(again)!

These emails suck my time almost daily by bombarding my inbox with their different stories. I wonder why these people spend some time making these types of email...are there still people out there who believe this kind of email tactics?

I got several email hoaxes this week, with different stories...like me winning a 1 million sterling pounds??...and now, becoming as one of the nearest kin of certain so and so to get the million dollars..WOW! my goodness gracious.

Why don't you get it yourself, MR. JUN HUAN?? Why bother other people?...strangers at that?

Here's the email:

Good Day To You,

I am Mr. Jun Huan of HSH Nordbank AG,
Hong Kong. I have an obscured
business
suggestion for you. In November, 1999, Ahmad Fahmi an Indonesian, a
contractor
with the Iraqi Government and also a businessman, made a time
investment of
US$24.5M as secured growth funds for (60) sixty calendar months in my
Branch.
This investment has matured and has been lying in our Bank reserve for

the past
two years, and under the
Hong Kong banking laws, any time Investment
unclaimed
after three years will be turned over to the Hong Kong Government
purse.

Upon maturity several notices were sent to him and no response came
from him.
Early This year, it was later discovered that the Ahmad Fahmi and his
family
were killed in a convoy attack in Musol, Iraqi on 22nd Aug, 2004.
After further
investigation it was also discovered that Ahmad Fahmi did not declare
any next
of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his Bank
deposit. And
he also confided in me the last time he was in my Office that no one
except me
knew of his deposit in my Bank.

Against this backdrop. I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the
next of
kin to Ahmad Fahmi so that you will be able to receive this funds. I
have
contacted an Attorney that will prepare the necessary document that
will back
you up as the next of kin to Ahmad Fahmi and also the rightful
beneficial to
the funds. After you have been made the next of kin, the Attorney will
also
fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and
letter
of probate in your favour for the transfer of the funds to your
nominated bank
account.

We are going adopt a legalized method and the Attorney will prepare all
the
necessary documents.

Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning
this
issue. What is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me
with
your full names, address, direct telephone and fax numbers to enable my
Attorney commence his job.

Reply strictly if you are interested with the requested information via
my
personal fax line +852 301 530 91 or my email address to enable my
Attorney
commences his job immediately.

Sincerely,
Mr. Jun Huan.
