Today (2015-03-09) I got a LinkedIn message, which shall make me rich. I think that other members from LinkedIn have gotten a similar message with the following content:
First thanks for accepting my Invitation on LinkedIn, I hope My message meets you in good health. It's my pleasure to introduce myself via this means. I am Ms Rose LEE Wai Mun, Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive With Hang Seng Bank Corporation Limited, I am responsible for all areas relating to accounting functions and financial reporting.

Ms Rose LEE Wai Mun
As I expect a scam about a long laying fund there I have answered the message to the given email address and expect now a story about a missing customer with millions of $ on a bank account, which has the same last name like me. For showing this to you, I have sent a short answer to the given email address:
Like I have expected it yesterday, I have received such an email. Don't take the bait. The next follow up will be the advance fee scam.
I stop at this time the communication with this scammer. The follow up will be only an advanced fee scam.
For the case that such a email would not be only scam, you would make yourself punishable and will end up in jail for helping in betraying the government, which gets in such case the heritage.
