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 (126,336,8299.38 TWD) 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 (2003). 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 percentage 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.
