William(s) Cheng doesn’t seem sure how to spell his own name, but he’s got a big deal for you if you just reply to this “hook” message. Is it money from a foreigner who died in a plane crash? From a deposed dictator? From an over-invoiced account? More likely it’s your money, and he’s looking for a way to get it into his pockets.
