Probably a scam, however, the exchange rate is very favorable right now for a deal like this. In the last year, I sold a boat to Australia and a 66 Corvette to Denmark.
I met with an agent for the the buyer on the Corvette. Also spoke to the Australian buyer several times and communicated by emails. Eventually met him when he took delivery. In both cases, they were being resold as a business.
As others have mentioned, open a new account and give that account information and transfer it out before the boat leaves. Just to be safe. I would only work with a wire transfer-no checks of any kind.
I always assume something is a scam until proven otherwise.
From what I have read, this sounds like a scam.
There are scams out there, but there are potential buyers as well.
Good luck, Greg

Since he likes to email so much , get him to send you a pic of himself lets say with a bucket on his head , a cigarette in his left hand , wearing a blue tshirt sitting in front of his puter. I have lots of good time wasters for scammers.

I just rec'd this one on the 21st of Feb; I SMELL A SCAM... And how many other people has this been sent too ??? SCARY AIN"T IT !!!

Mr. Vincent Cheng
Email: [email protected]

Good Day
I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi-chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of The Hong Kong and Shanghai
Banking Corporation Limited. I have a concealed business suggestion for you.

Our client Gen.Aadeel Agaal Bastaan who was with the Iraqi forces and also
businessman made a fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty
one million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch.
Several maturities notices was sent to him, before the war which began in 2003.
also after the war another notification was sent,and no response came from him.
We later found out that the General along with his wife and only daughter had
been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.

After more inquiry it was also discovered that this Gen.did not declare any next
of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And
he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me
knew of his deposit in my bank. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at
the expiration of 6 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong
Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come
out successful. There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going
adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary
documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters
concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated
bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you.

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this
issue and also I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official
channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not
want you contacting me through my phone lines nor do I want you contacting me
through my official e-mail account. Contact me only through this e-mail address: [email protected] and also
if there be a need for me to call I will do the callings. I do not want any
direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they
are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our
Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously,
after which I shall provide you with more details on this operation.

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Vincent Cheng
