    I received something like this, but the spelling and grammar was pretty bad and really caught my attention, on a letter that claimed to be an official certificate and was legal tender to be drawn only with a certified draft from Hang Seng Bank...and then there is the seal of the home depot of the foreigner's branch of the West Bengal bank! It seems like completely ridiculous scam...put on by people who cannot spell, speak or write in English. However, I'd hate to be wrong and miss out on moolah!
