Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Peter Wong Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, HONG
KONG. An Iraqi named Besem Faruak, a business man made a

numbered fixed deposit of (126,336,829.38 hk) for 18 calendar months, this
is valued to Eight million United State Dollars

only in my branch.

Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war, four
years ago (2004). Again after the war another

notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found
out that Besem Faruak, 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 Besem Faruak, 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
we was at my office that no one except me knew of

his deposit in my bank. So, Eight million 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 percent age 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 deposite.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 Besem Faruak, 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 should be interested in executing this with
me,indicate your interest by sending me the


Your response with the requested information should be sent to reach me at
my personal email address below:

I shall then provide you with more details on this operation when I hear
from you.


Mr. peter Wong
