I sometimes laugh of these scammers, but sometimes I am quit amazed of their capability to adapt to the spam filters.
My Google account caught this spam:
In text, this is :
I am Mr. Ming Yang,Director of operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Sai Wan Ho Branch,Hong Kong.I am here-by seeking your service in helping me receive a large amount of money and in giving a clear research and feasibility studies on areas I could invest on.Your services will be paid for,and you will be a partner,if your recommendation is accepted.
For security purpose,due to telecoms interception in Hong Kong,I shall not accept or acknowledge any phone call.Only emails would be treated in relation to this proposal but not without this code;[CODE NO:AM-001].My contact:firstname.lastname@example.org
What’s wrong here ?
There is no story whatsoever
They even require that you don’t contact them by phone
Cool, but not good enough to escape the spam filters.
