Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Freeman Jones Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong. An Iraqi named 
Hanoon, a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of (346,736,899.68 TWD) for 18 calendar 
months; this is valued to Forty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my 
Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war, five years ago (2005). Again 
after the 
war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that 
Hanoon and his family had been killed during the war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb 
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 we 
were 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 
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 
release the deposit to you. We share the percentage 70/30. I would have gone ahead to ask the funds 
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 
them to release the deposit to you. With these: all is done. I am aware of the consequences of this 

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 
contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know 
this but people like me who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private 
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 
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 
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 opportunities.

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

this email.
Further more be informed that the fact that you are a foreigner give you the privilege to stand in
