Out of the box

Dealing with a potential scam
I receive an email telling me that I am the potential beneficiary of a large deposit from a deceased person in Hong Kong who has the same family name as me. The sender claims to be a senior manager of an international bank.

I replied to the email asking the sender to show proof of her identity and relationship with the bank.

She replied with a photo of an ID card and her international passport. (Hehehe. These documents could be faked with photoshop).

She asked me to send my particulars to be entered into the legal document to receive 40% of the proceeds (of several million dollars).

I replied to her that I am verifying her identity with the bank. I did not get any reply, and do not expect her to contact me any more.

By the way, she use a Gmail account, and not the email account of the international bank.

Anyway, I would expect that at one stage, she will ask me to send her money to pay for the fee to executive the legal agreement, etc. 

Let us see what happens next. (Hehehe).
