Good Day,

I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the 
Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited.

Our client BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman and also 
who was with the Iraqi forces, made a fixed deposit, of Twenty 
Two million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in 
my branch, a number of notices was sent to him, before the war 
which began in 2003 and also after the war but, no response 
came from him. We later found out that Brigadier Amer Ali Nayef 
was shot dead along with his son, Khalid Amer also in the force 
as they left the family home for work in the south of the city. 

After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late Brigadier, 
did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including 
the paper work of his bank deposit. What bothers me most is 
according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 6 years 
the funds will be reverted to the ownership of the Hong Kong 
Government if nobody comes for the funds, Against this scenery, 
I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want 
you to act as the beneficiary of the deposit, there is no risk 
involved in this matter, as we are going to adopt a legitimate 
method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.

All I require is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this 
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect 
you from any breach of the law. Please accept my apologies, keep 
my confidence and disregard this email if you do not appreciate 
this proposition I have offered you. 

All confirmable documents to back up the claims will be made available 
to you prior to your acceptance and as soon as I receive your return 
mail Via my email address: and I will let you 
know what is required of you. 

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Best Regards, 
Mr. Vincent Cheng
