Huaxia department branch bank, Ped Wang, Mao Lin Xu

It was an inheritance scam where I was to divide the sum with a
former employee of the Huaxia branch bank in Hong Kong who
knew the deceased and helped him invest some of his money that
was deposited $8,350,000.00USD in the bank. There was also
accrued interest of $5,630,000.00USD.
When Alfred T. Dobyns and wife and daughter went to China on a
vacation,they were all killed in an automobile accident 31st of
October 2005.Ped Wang who was the employee who helped
invest the principal amount which earned interest, knew unless
he could come up with an heir, the money would go to the state.
Ped Wang looked in a directory and found my name and address
and wrote a letter that he sent to me by a courior via London
for security purposes.
After I received his letter and agreed to go along with his plan
which he assured me was perfectly legal, he had a lawyer come
up with the Death Certificate and an Affidavit of Next of Kin and
a LETTER TO THE EXECUTOR with Ped Wang named as the co-
executor and naming me as the beneficiary.
I was asked by Mrs. Zhen Hu ,Head , Banking Services Depart. of the HUA XIA Bank in Hong Kong to come from the U.S. to sign the papers for fund release documents. Since I did not feel up to making the trip, they directed me to hire their locally accredited attorney to represent me and to whom I signed over the power of attorney for this process only. The attorney is Mao Lin Xu of the law firm Lance,Lee,Xu and Associates, principal partner, 13th Floor South China Building, 1-3 Wyndham St. Central Hong Kong,China.His fee was $12,082.00USD.
On July 26, 2011, a wire tranfer of the principal sum of $8,350,000.00USD was initiated and we found out that a Foreign Exchange Allocation Certificate needed to be obtained .The late Alfred T. Dobyns never paid the cost of conversion charges to the State Inland Revenue upon currency swap of 0.9% or $75,150.00USD. This I paid reluctantly .
Next we found out that the Chinese Law Society intercepted a wire
transfer of funds and put a stop order on it. They demanded 10%
up front to let it go. We finanlly got them down to $40,000.00USD
wait until after the funds reached my account to receive the balance.
In October, we received a NOTICE:NON-RESIDENTIAL TAX
CLEARANCE needed on a wire transfer of funds .
1. Non -Residential Tax : $193,605.00USD
2. Penalty Fees : $ 50,000.00USD
TOTAL : $ 243,605.00USD
On October 27 we received an e-mail stating that we had a deadline October 31 to pay the money and obtain a Non-Resident
Tax Clearance or else the funds would be confiscated to the republic
There was no way that I could pay that sum. Ped Wang got busy
and got a mortgage of $44,200.00 on the family rice paddy farm
and wired the money to the IRD. What puzzles me is how he
supposedly got a loan so fast.
A professor in business at a U.S. University that i know who has been to Hong Kong many times and has many contacts there
thinks that it is all a scam and there are at least a dozen people
involved in this ring. Ped Wang quit his job at Huaxia in early July
that i confirmed. This was premature although he supposedly
thought we were going to have the first part of the money transfered to my bank account and then we were to divide it.
Another increminating thing is that I have looked up his name on
Google and found other letters with almost the same wording that
he sent to me, but different names. I keep getting e-mails from
him pleading for me to come up with the almost $200,000.00
to pay off the I.R.D. before we loose all of the money.
