Dear Sir

My name is Mr.Wang Qin,a native of Banda Aceh, Indonesia.I got your information while browsing the internet in search of a reliable person that will assist me because of the problem my family have during the EarthQuake in Tsunami on December 2004.

My family were killed during the Asian Tsunami Disaster on 26 December 2004 and right now i am at Australian Military Hospital in Banda Aceh seek for your assitance for my father,s waelth because as soon as i get well from the hospital, i will not like to stay or live in asia any more as i don,t have any family here,This is because after the death of my family,I inherited all my father buisness and wealth.I was a Gold dealer in Deira "GOLD SOUK"meaning gold market in Sri Lanka.

At present, I am suffering from a long-time cancer of the brain and from all indications, my condition is realy deteriorating because doctor'e report shows that i may not live beyond six months from now. So, I now decided to divide part of this wealth,by contributing to the well being of the less privileged and handicapped around the world.

This mission, which no doubt is very tasking had made me to recently relocate from my family house to Sri Lanka where I live at present so i can avoid pressure and distraction from the shock. I selected you for this Purpose and prayed over it.At first, i did not know how to put up this request for asistance because I have been recieving scam mails from AFRICA.

However I feel I can trust you and I am willing to donate the sum of $7,800,000.00 Million US Dollars to you for the development and well being of the handicapped and less privileged around your country.I have also decided to map out $500,000.00 for your own personal expenses in the course of this work.

Please note that, this fund is currently deposited with a Finance organisation,But I can ask my Attorney to help file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in your name.

Futheremore, if you are willing to assit me on this request, Please kindly reply to me on this E-Mial Address(wang-qin-chow@execs.com) where my Lawyer will be in controll of our transection, Secondly,do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use,other that what is mearnt for.

Lastly, I want you/family home to be praying for me as regards my entire life and my health because I have come to find out since my spiritual birth lately that wealth acquisition with out God, one's life is vanity upon vanity.

I await your urgent reply


Mr.Wang Qin.


What's truly remarkable - I never stop being amazed by this - is that these scams work.

Also note that - as with most internet scams (e.g., spyware advertising itself as anti-spyware software) - this scam attempts to innoculate itself by acknowledging the previous scams and distancing itself from them - "At first, i did not know how to put up this request for asistance because I have been recieving scam mails from AFRICA."
