Good day, 

I am Mr. Wang HongZhang, Chief Disciplinary Officer, People's Bank of China (PBC). 
I got your email contact via the internet (Google search) and decided to contact you. I have an 
interesting/profitable business proposal of US$24.5million and this will be of immense benefit to 
both of us if only you are interested.  Before the U.S and Iraqi war, a client of Bank of China, 
Mr. Khazeal Hamood Hasaab a Merchant, made a numbered fixed deposit valued at $24,500,000.00 
(Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars), for 18 calendar months, at Bank 
of China, Tower Branch, 1 Garden Road Hong Kong. Upon maturity several notices were sent to him, 
even during the war which began in 2003. Again, after the war another notification was sent, but 
still no response came from him. It was later found out that Mr Khazeal Hamood Hasaab, his wife and 
two sons had been killed during the war (Basra).
After further investigation, it was also discovered that Mr Khazeal did not declare any next of kin 
in his official papers, including the paperwork of his bank deposit. He also confided, in the Chief 
Risk Officer, Bank of China (BOCHK), that no one knew of his deposit in the bank. According to the 
laws of my country, at the expiration of 5years and 6 months such funds are reverted to the Peoples 
Bank Of China (PBC), where it will be deposited in the reserve of the Government, if nobody applies 
to claim it. Due to the fact that the fund has been in the bank for more than four years, 
provisions are being made for it to be reverted to my Bank (PBC). When the case was presented at my 
desk, I contacted the risk officer (BOCHK), who is a good friend of mine and gathered all the 
information that I have presented to you. Against this backdrop, I will like you, as a foreigner, 
to stand as next of kin to Khazeal Hamood Hasaab, so that we can receive his funds.
 I will like to know if you will be interested in this project please. I will make more details 
available to you on receipt of a positive response from you.
