Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Song Li Le Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan Ho
Branch, 171 Shaukiwan Road Hong Kong.An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon, a business
man made a numbered fixed deposit of (346,736,899.68 HKD) for 18 calendar
months; this is valued to Forty Million Five Hundred Thousand United State
Dollars only in branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him,even
during the war,three years ago (2005). Again after the war another notification
was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that Haider
Hanoon and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their
home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was.After further investigation
it was also discovered that Haider Hanoon 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. So, Forty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United
State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to
claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country at the
expiration five years six months the funds will revert to the ownership of the
Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a position to
instruct HANG SENG BANK to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving
relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with
you in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have
them release the deposit to you.We share the percentage 50/50. I would have
gone ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a
straight line in my involvement in claiming the deposit. I assure you that I
could have the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply inform
the bank of the final closing of the file relating to Haider Hanoon I will then officially communicate with my Bank and instruct them to release the deposit to
you. With these: all is done. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal.

I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no
appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not
destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know
this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable
situations run the whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I
do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to
understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move.
Such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this
chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These
chances won?t pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will
not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy
me. I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new

There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I
have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to
work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this
situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into
the center of relevance in my life. Let?s share the blessing.

If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a
conclusion. 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 official phone lines nor do I want you
contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only through the
email account that i will provide therein in this email.

privilege to stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as my Deceased client

my relation because its not accepted here in Hong Kong. Also I am very
