I am peter-wong from Bank hang seng hong kong, I have a late client funds of $8 USD in my bank and i need you to front as beneficiary,if interested contact me for more details on Email:pwong47@yahoo.com.hk

Sincerely, Mr.p-wong.

Well, you have to applaud the brevity of the come-on, if not the amount on offer. To secure the funds, we have no doubt we'd have to stump the usual $20k in local taxes, bribes, bungs and backhanders, so we've decided to let this one pass. ®
