WARNING~I received this email today. I have seen millions of these same SCAM LETTERS ~ Block and destroy 🤐

Dear Marshall,

Thank you for giving me your time, Let me start by introducing my self, I am Mrs. Elaine Lam a staff of OCBC WING HANG BANK. here in Hong Kong attached in Private Banking Services, I am contacting you concerning a customer and an investment placed under our bank management; as a matter of fact, it was 7 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail private and also to kindly respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this email.

I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication; I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. It is of great importance for you to take care and understand every word which I have written down below; please be patient and read the explanation in my email.

In 2010, the subject matter; Ref: LB/TSB/958/042/0511 came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our Private Banking Services Department. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of ( €23,780,426 Euros) Twenty three million, seven hundred and eighty thousand, four hundred and twenty-six euros, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the Private Banking Services Department, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank.

A few months later his attention was needed regarding a business which I was going to discuss with him but I was unable to reach him, I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department of our bank. Four days later, information started to trickle in, that he was apparently dead, a person who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in Cannes, South of France; we were soon enough able to gather more information and the cause of death was confirmed. The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his funds. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin.

Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; he died Intestate. There are ( €23,780,426 Euros) Twenty-three million, seven hundred and eighty thousand, four hundred and twenty-six euros deposited, I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. Also, I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as the finance firm is concerned, the transaction with our deceased customer concluded when I sent the funds to the firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer services and due process. The finance firm has no single idea of what’s the history or nature of the deposit, they are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward, and this is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track the family of the deceased; they have investigated for months and have found no family but however, the investigation has officially come to an end.

My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position whereby an instruction is given to the finance firm to officially release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation/associate, and all etiquette shall be done in accordance with the rule of law, I certainly can guarantee you that. By the common law, the power of bequeathing is coeval with the first rudiments of the law. There is no ruling which prevents an inheritance from being so exhausted by legacies as to render it unworthy of their’s acceptance; perfect operation whereby the paperwork shall be coordinated in such a way that your status as a sole beneficiary is confirmed.
Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half and no more; that is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you; afterward we share the proceeds 50/50.

I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit, but on the other hand, you as an indifferent foreigner would easily pass as the beneficiary with the rights to claim, I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you in a few days. I will simply inform our bank of the final closing of the file relating to the customer, I will then officially communicate with the finance company and instruct them to release the deposit to you; with these two things: all is done. The alternative would be for us to have the firm direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder but the bank must have same telex type with our bank here in Hong Kong, this way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money from the firm. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions, I am aware of the consequences of this proposal and I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should disregard this mail. I ask also, that you do not be vindictive or destructive if my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you; please do not destroy my career this transaction is a lifetime opportunity. You may not know this but people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector, I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find
against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones’ way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by and I hope you understand because for once I found myself in total control and face to face with my destiny.

These changes won’t pass me by, I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me please let me know, and hence move on with my life, but do not destroy me; I am a family woman and this is an occasion to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank; I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune will bless you and plant you into the center of relevance in my life, let’s share the blessing. If you find yourself interested to work with me, please contact me specifically, if you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a quick conclusion. It is necessary to inform you that under no condition should you contact me via official channels; I will simply deny knowing you and about this project.

I repeat I do not want you contacting me through our official lines neither do I want you contacting me through my official email account. I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to access our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality
Management policy, please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a Family woman; I happily married with kids, I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold, this is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients; do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord I shall have the pleasure of meeting you, after this task has been completed plan a meeting.

I await your response.

Yours Sincerely,

Mrs. Elaine Lam.

Strong Women Quotes

Start a Meetup group

Building Social-Confidence and Social-Leadership

Start a Meetup group
Meetup groups are not just a fantastic way of meeting new people, but they are a fantastic way of practicing social interaction in a comfortable environment. What I have found is that there are always new people coming to Meetups and that you will never be the only person that does not know anyone. This can help you to start to create your very own social circle that you can practice taking the lead in.

Starting your own Meetup group is another fantastic way of enabling you to truly show your uniqueness. You can design your group’s site, pick the locations and choose your target audience, allowing you to build social leadership in a way that is suited to your life.

Join Toastmasters
Toastmasters is undoubtedly one of the best ways of building your confidence in front of people. For those that do not know, Toastmasters is a non-profit organisation helping individuals build communication and leadership skills. Essentially, you go through a variety of exercise, games and simulations that help you think on your feet, prepare key messages and speak in front of an audience.

Spend just 6 weeks with toastmasters and I’m sure you will feel a vast improvement in your social confidence and social leadership.

Develop and deliver a presentation on your topic of expertise
What is it that you are an expert in? What do people come to you for when they need help? Develop and deliver a presentation on your topic of expertise and enhance your social confidence and social leadership. Giving a presentation not only enables you to practice your speaking and communication skills in front of an audience, but it helps you develop authority in the topic that you are choosing.

Have you noticed that after giving a presentation people seem more interested in talking to you? Getting up and presenting in front of an audience gives other’s an insight into who you are as a person, enabling them to feel more comfortable in approaching you. This enables you to easily develop your social confidence and social leadership amongst something that you have expertise in and in an environment where you feel more comfortable.

Do something silly and make it public!
The world is simply one big playground! I absolutely love this one and it is something my friends and I do regularly. Never underestimate it’s power in enhancing your social confidence and social leadership.

Jump outside of your comfort zone and do something silly in public. Perhaps it’s singing in public, dancing in public, wearing an outlandish t-shirt in public. Perhaps it’s organising a day out wearing ridiculous outfits with friends. Whatever it is, make sure it’s silly, fun and something that you normally would not do.

Being silly in public helps you learn that life is simply about having fun and that social interactions do not have to be daunting or serious. It also enables you to truly show your uniqueness and bring out another side of your personality for the world to see.

Go to networking events
There is a lot of stigma around networking events, but in saying that there is also a lot of awesome value. Networking events are everywhere these days and for a range of different purposes. Find a networking event that suits your interests and practice meeting new people. The more that you practice interacting with others and the more you observe others interacting , you will quickly build your social confidence and also enhance your social leadership, allowing you to be more comfortable in expressing who you truly are.

Go to singles events
Even if you’re not single, going to single’s events can be a fantastic way of putting yourself out there and practicing your social skills. The good thing is, everyone is there to meet new people and simply have a good time. Sure, you might be spending more time with the opposite sex here, but they make up about 50% of the population so it’s not a bad place to start.

As an added bonus, if you’re single and you’ve developed your social confidence and social leadership, you will most likely walk away with a few dates to come your way!

Be the organizer of events amongst your friends
Last but definitely not least, be the organizer of events among your friends. You already have a good relationship with your friends and you will no doubt have social confidence amongst them. Being the organizer of events is a great way of developing your social leadership, allowing you to show your uniqueness and do activities that most interest you and that you feel more comfortable in doing. Your friends will see you as a social leader, also helping you to develop your social confidence.

Having complete social confidence and social leadership is not something that is found overnight. It is built and developed from taking action, putting yourself out there, learning more about yourself and experiencing the world.

The Secret to Effortless Detachment😁

Detachment from the outcome you want to experience is vital to creating your ideal reality. To be attached is to live in the fear that what you want will not materialize and traps you in a continuous state of desire. Attachment to anything or anyone turns love into fear and belief into doubt. In contrast, faith allows you to detach yourself from the outcome and transforms your desires into your choice.
Attachment is Giving Away Your Power:
The instant you attach yourself to a specific person’s actions or words or to a certain outcome, you give your power away to external forces and circumstances. In effect, you give away your power to create your own reality. To be attached to anything or to anyone is to tell yourself that you are somehow incomplete without that person, thing or event in your life. In so doing you fail to see the divine perfection in what is, as it is. Instead, you create within yourself a desperate need to control the process and a sense of doubt whether what you want will manifest. Attachment breeds doubt and as Khalil Gibran said: “Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother”.
Faith is the Antidote for Attachment:
Detachment Transforms Desire into Choice: Paradoxically, desire keeps your desires away from you because to desire something is to acknowledge its absence in your life. When you become certain of the outcome, then your desire becomes your choice. Your choice is your intention, it is your will. It transforms “what could be” into “what is” and dissolves all doubt. When you will something, you no longer desire it to happen, you choose for it to do so. Remember that we were all given “free will”. You have the free will to create the reality of your choice in accordance with your needs.
When you detach yourself from the outcome you will instantly feel your doubt and fear transforming into a deep sense of knowing and certainty. This is faith. Faith is the route to true detachment. It is the only way to willingly hand over your choices to the Omnipotence of the One Universal Consciousness of which you are a part. To have faith does not mean to sit back and wish things could be different. It is to relax in the knowledge that your choice has already manifested in the mental realm from which all things manifest, and to take inspired action toward that specific outcome materializing in the physical world. Faith is not blind. To the contrary, it is “the evidence of things not seen”.
Making Detachment Effortless:
Detachment comes naturally when you know, understand and apply the truth that you are one with the Universal Mind – the All, the One Creator – for which nothing is impossible. Whenever you feel a sense of panic or a need to control the process, whether in your day-to-day thoughts or during your creative visualization sessions, then know that you are most probably in a state of attachment. At that moment, relax and remind yourself that in the conscious creation process, time is an illusion of the physical realm and that what you have chosen to experience is in the process of transforming from a non-physical to a physical state. You can only ever be in control when you have no need to control.
Do Not Confuse Detachment with Quitting:
To detach is not the same as quitting on your choices. On the contrary, it is to feel so calmly certain of their manifestation in your life that you no longer have to worry, wonder or even think about them. When you are detached you feel more powerful, determined and clear in your thoughts. A simple way you can tell whether you have detached or quit is by gauging how you feel. In other words, when you detach you feel empowered, when you quit you feel disempowered.
Letting Go Allows for Flow:
When you are attached to the manifestation of a specific outcome, you place yourself in a state of resistance to what is, and as the saying goes “what you resist persists”. To detach shifts your state into one of total non-resistance where panic transforms into peace of mind and certainty. This is the state which allows life to flow. This is the state which allows for your desires to become your choice and your choice to become your reality. It maximizes your thought power and allows your choices to manifest in the shortest period as you consciously align yourself with the Law of Attraction. It enables you to enjoy the process and know that everything is in perfect order as it is. When you are detached, life becomes a game to be enjoyed.
“This or Something Better”:
Detachment allows you to experience the full gamut of life. You open yourself up to experiences and events infinitely more joyful than perhaps even those that you initially desired for yourself. This is why it is important to always say “this or something better” when you choose something in your life. When you can say that with all honesty, then you know you are truly detached.
In a nutshell, detachment is vital to allowing your ideal reality to manifest in your physical world. Attachment breeds panic, fear and disempowerment which detachment transforms into peace of mind, certainty and empowerment. Detachment transforms your desire into your choice. The route to detachment is faith. The truth that you are One with the Universal Mind and that everything in your outside world is a reflection of your inner world, makes detachment effortless.

SOME FOLKS LIKE TO TRAVEL – A vacation getaway – TO PARADISE!?

“TRAVEL!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Magical Mystery Tour!” 02/03/19 (SUN-day)

Are you going outside of your comfort zone? It’s QUITE THE THING to do!
Go ahead! Work your b – – t off! SOME! DESTINATION?! to:
Some place! With other people, IDEAS! NORMS! and-(social)MORES!
LANGUAGES can be diverse, as your little-body forays,
Into new dimensions – and, after not too long,
You realize you-may-not get back – to your HOLD-which-WAS-“so strong?”
Because, whatever your “leaving reason,” even-if-to help a friend,
You have sacrificed YOUR HOME – and now how will it end?
DO YOU FIND YOURSELF – compelled – by the whims of some “tour guide,”
Who’s in charge of transport and meal plans – YOU’RE GOIN’ FO’ A RIDE!
For the morning? then afternoon? And NOW – the night approaches,
It could be years – or never! A shadow-over-time – encroaches!

SOME FOLKS LIKE TO TRAVEL – A vacation getaway –
TO PARADISE!? (or Hell and back) BEWARE! Lest every day,
You look with yearning – to-past-conditions – and they-may soon-fade from-view;
YOU HOPE YOUR “HANDLERS” might decide – to-send-you-HOME “in a few!”
Of course, NOW, nothing’s certain – at least IF-you-have “a home,”
It is FAMILIAR, the faces and stores – and, with-routine, you-seldom-roam,
Too far abreast – on any day – Of course, sometimes SOME TRAVEL,
Is-justified for a little while, but don’t let plans unravel,
And give the reins – to someone, who promises anything,
For NO ONE KNOWS WHAT MIGHT TRANSPIRE, when-you-take-“a-foreign-wing,”
And “fly to The Moon” or “To The Border!”
MAKE SURE YOUR HOUSE IS WELL IN ORDER,
And, as-much-as-you-can, have a basic plan:
Do be deliberate, IF YOU WANT-TO-GET-A TAN,
In Hawaii (or Heaven)! Just get yourself “brown;”
THEN, COME HOME WITH A SMILE – AND NOT WITH A FROWN! 🙂 – Hee, he
