Business deal from Yuan Peng – just another bank scam

When someone approaches me offering to transfer funds from a  deceased family member’s bank account, I smell scam.  Lost and forgotten accounts are real, but you need to find them yourself.  No news report regarding a bank tracking down family members to give them money have ever come across my radar.
