FROM: MR.He Guangbei

Hong Kong .

You might be apprehensive because you do not know me but I have a business
proposal of mutual 
interest to share with you. Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.HE
Guangbei, Vice Chairman 
and Chief Executive with overall responsibility for the business and
operations of Bank of China 
( Hong Kong ) Limited ("BOCHK"). I have a Business suggestion for you.  
In October, 2002, my late client Ghazi Musa Hassan, an Iraqi Crude oil
merchant made a numbered 
fixed deposit of Thirty million, Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars
(US$30,500,000.00) only 
in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the
war (U.S and Iraqi war), 
Five years ago (2003). Again after the war another notification was sent
and still no response came 
from him. We later found out that Ghazi Musa Hassan, and his family had
been killed during the war 
in a bomb blast that hit his home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well
After further investigation it was also discovered that Ghazi Musa 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 in my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in
my bank. So, Thirty million 
Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars are 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 
six {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 Ghazi Musa 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 
an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up
as the next of kin to Ghazi 
Musa Hassan, all that is required from you is 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 fill in for 
claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of
probate in your favor for the
movement of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. We are
going to adopt a legalized 
method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents in your
There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.
There is no risk involved at all in 
this matter, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is
for you refusing to work with me 
and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good
fortune has blessed you with 
a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. 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 70% for me, 30% for you but
this can be subjected to further 
negotiations. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what
the consequences, but I know 
within me that nothing ventured is gained and that success and riches never
come easy or on a platter 
of gold. Please observe this instruction religiously.
