Veteran of exploits going back to 2005, including KATTING AROUND (a moving tale of a bachelor javelina farmer versus scammers and one of the funniest and time-wastingest scambaits going), THINGS OF THE EARTH ARE CANAL, and ODIRI ME. From the tireless hive mind of Naz springs an unusual response to the classic Dead Bank Customer proposal.

raynaz, ink, offers a small tidbait, (but it has possibilities, depending on how greedy this Lad is...)

NORMAN CHAN

Then this missive...

Dear Friend,

Thank you very much for responding to my email and your interest this transaction. Let me introduce myself. I'm Norman Chan, Tak-Lam, S.B.S., J.P, Chief Executive, Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) Hong Kong.

No he isn't, and if you believed him, go back to the main page and read it OUT LOUD to yourself.

I want you to know that this transaction is very much genuine and real. You have nothing to worry about for i have put all necessary modalities that will ensure the success of this transaction. I have even arranged for the service of a professional attorney who will make sure this transaction is legally carried out putting you as the legal beneficial next of kin to my client Dimitrois H. Gomez. All you just need to do is to follow my directives so that this transaction can be completed soonest.

In this light, it is necessary for you to be sure of whom you are transacting with. I will advise you visit our Website portal

... which is a web site, all right, but not his...

I would want you to understand that during my bank's end of year audit of 2010, there was a board decision that all unclaimed funds concerning Inheritance should be declared bad claims to enable the bank relocate itself against accumulated debts. In the course of my responsibility, I discovered $47.1M USD (Forty-Seven Million, One Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) left unclaimed by a deceased customer since September, 2005. Every exploration I made showed that there is no registered beneficiary to these funds, this is why I contacted you because it would have been my pleasure to have this money to myself or ask any of my family member to conclude this with me but due to the fact that it will not work out that way I have to search for someone more competent from outside Hong Kong to execute this transaction with me without putting my job in a peril state.

I want to be sure you are ready and proficient to see this transaction with me to achievement. What we both need to achieve this transaction is trust and commitment; I believe with your assistance, we will be able to transfer this large sum conveniently without exercising any fear. And also regarding the legality, I want to put it to you that in achieving this transaction, you should know that what affects you implies to me too. But it will be necessary and appreciative for you to give attention to my directives politely as everything shall be done in accordance through the laws of the international banking and guidance policies. What you should put in mind, as a banker it is my responsibility to make sure everything goes well without worries at all. That is, if you follow up this transaction diligently, it would be completed within some couple of days.

You should not have anything to worry about, my attorney shall be handling all matters of probate on your behalf, he will have all the documents perfected, and with these documents he shall come forward to my bank to apply for the immediate release and transfer of the funds to the account we shall open in your name with our corresponding bank. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my Attorney to give the transaction the legal right. Before I commence, I will need you to fill and sign the Letter of Confidence and send back to me immediately with a copy of any form of your identification (Driver's license, work ID or International passport). You are to send this required document to my email or fax: +85282657456 the most important issue is that I want to be sure I am transacting with the correct person and my curiosity can be justified considering the money in question. Besides, it is this copy of your Driver's License or International Passport that will be used by the Attorney to have all the necessary documentations perfected, I want the funds transferred from my bank before the week runs out.

I have attached along with this e-mail, a Confidence Letter for your indulgence, which you are to fill and sign, then scan and send it as an attachment via E-mail or to my fax: +85282657456, so that the Attorney that will be representing your interest over here can go ahead to start processing for the release of the unclaimed funds in your names that will place you as the sole beneficiary to the funds in subject.

If you really intend to execute this transaction with me it would be necessary to have these sent to me immediately via e-mail attachment or fax.

Regards,
Norman.

So, your basic Dead Bank Customer 'format'.

Raymondo Nazzariani

So, dutiful as I am, I did as told...

Chan,

I have printed, filled and scanned this LOC as you instructed me to do.

When will we proceed? I should inform you, I have a very spotty work schedule. I do not have regular working hours, as my duties require me to be "on call" ready to drop everything and travel to the area where my expertise or services are needed. If I am away from my home for any length of time, my housekeeper, Nella Feeny, will take any messages for me.

Please keep in touch.

Raymondo

For OCCUPATION, I wrote that I was an 'Enforcer of protocol for the Marino family'. (A small stroke of genius on my part, if you ask me...

Subject: IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED

Dear Friend,

I have received the LOC FORM. You are to quickly send me your identification in order for the attorney to commence his due diligence legal formalities that will facilitate the release of the fund from my bank. I earnestly await this required document.

Regards,

Norman.

Raymondo Nazzariani

Chan,

I do not have much identification, because of these reasons:

A) NO DRIVER LICENSE I don't need one, as I do not have an automobile. I have a chauffeur, Beauregard d'Acious, at my service (one of the benefits of my job) He is a large man, and acts as my personal assistant and strong man, if I need his help.

B) NO PASSPORT The Marino family has a private aircraft, and has several highly-connected people who know how to "get around" the Customs regulations, when I travel.

C) NO SOCIAL SECURITY CARD The Marinos pay me in cash, so it is not necessary to deduct taxes, etc.

D) NO CREDIT CARDS I do purchases on a CASH ONLY basis.

E) I don't want too many people to know who I am. I prefer to conduct my business in private.

I thought you mentioned "trust" in one of your initial corresponces. I assume that you want me to trust you, but shouldn't you trust me, too? If you do not trust me to be who I say I am, maybe we should call off our deal. I would not be offended if you did, because I do not really need the money, I would like to have a "little extra", that would be a very good thing for the retirement years.

Tell me what you want me to do.

And you may address me by my name, Raymondo. (Not "FRIEND" which is insulting, as we do not know each other well enough to be friends yet.)

Thank you, Raymondo

Subject: IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED

Dear Partner,

I got you mail and was quite understood, i requested for this information for my perusal and not for the purpose of the public or theft, i would really like to know the person i am dealing with for easy recognition and that was my reason for requesting for such information, note that i will not be entrusting such fund in your care without your identification, all what i want you do now is to have your identification sent in order for the attorney to give this transaction a legal right.

Before we commence this transaction, I will need you to send me a copy of any form your identification (Driver's license Work ID or International passport) and the LOC form to my fax +85282657456 . I want to be sure that I am transacting with the correct person.

Please reply soonest.

Kind Regards,
Norman


Raymondo Nazzariani

Chan,

First, let me be very clear on this. You are to address me by my name, NOT "partner" or "friend" I have a name. Use it.

Second, I wonder if you actually READ the mail that is sent to you!! I distinctly remember that I wrote to you only yesterday:

A) NO DRIVER LICENSE-- I don't need one, as I do not have an automobile. I have a chauffeur, Beauregard d'Acious, at my service (one of the benefits of my job) He is a large man, and acts as my personal assistant and strong man, if I need his help.

B) NO PASSPORT-- The Marino family has a private aircraft, and has several highly-connected people who know how to "get around" the Customs regulations, when I travel.

C) NO SOCIAL SECURITY CARD-- The Marinos pay me in cash, so it is not necessary to deduct taxes, etc.

D) NO CREDIT CARDS-- I make purchases on a CASH ONLY basis.

E) I don't want too many people to know who I am. I prefer to conduct my business in private.

I will add this: F) I DO NOT HAVE A "WORK ID", because I work for a private family group, and it is not necessary for me to be "identified". The people in charge know me. By the time my services are required, it is absolutely imperative that I remain as incognito as is needed.

Have I made myself perfectly clear about this? I hope there will be no further confusion on this matter, if you want to know me on sight, I will send you a picture of myself.

Should this clarification not satisfy you, I will be happy to step aside, so that you can find another "partner". This is your choice.

Thank you, Raymondo Nazzariani

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your message. I am afraid to tell you that you are not qualified to go into this project without your identification. I shall look for another partner. Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Norman

Raymondo Nazzariani

Chan,

You will probably regret abandoning me as a partner. I'm sure we could have had a very good business relationship.

With my connections and your money, we would have been on easy street for the rest of our lives.

Regards, Raymondo

Now, is this the Lad's final decision? We'll give him a week or two to make up his mind. TaTaForNow...
