Good Day,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Marvin K.T Cheung Executive
Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have a Secured
business suggestion for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Col. Hosam Hassan who was with the
Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar
months, with a value of Thirty million United State Dollars only in my branch.
Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war early this
year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response
came from him. We later find out that Col. HosamHassan and his family had been
killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Col. Hosam Hassan 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, Thirty million United
State Dollar is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to
claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at
the expiration 6 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong
Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a
foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Col. Hosam Hassan so that you will be
able to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come
out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary
document that will back you up as the next of kin to Col. Hosam Hassan, all that
is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names
and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made
the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf.

There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a
legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.
Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this
issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we
shall share in the ratio of 60% for me,40% for you. 

Should you be interested please send the informationâs below,

1. Full names and Age.
2. Private phone number.
3. Current residential address.

I will prefer you to reach me on my private Email address below:
Email: (

And finally after that I shall provide you with more details on this

Your earliest response to this letter will be highly appreciated.
