Dear Friend,

Thank you for your response, Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client
Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed who was a business merchant and a contractor
with the Iraqi Government but a citizen of SAUDI ARABIA,Made a numbered
fixed deposit for 24 calendar months(2Years), with a value of Twenty Two
million Four Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon
maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began
in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no
response came from him. We later find out that Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed
along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a
bomb blast that hit His Resident. After further investigation it was also
discovered that Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed 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, Twenty Two million Four
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars 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 3 years and six month 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
Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed 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 Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz
Mohammed,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 fill
in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter
of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that
will be provided by you.There is no risk involved at all in this matter,
as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all
the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in
all matters concerning this issue.Should you be interested please send me

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

And I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below;


And finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this
operation. I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business
seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction,I
shall be waiting for your response and assurance.Your earliest response to
this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr.Joseph .Poon
