Dear  Friend,

I am Mr.Simon Yi Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Hong Kong.

An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon,a business man made a numbered fixed  deposit of (346,736,899.68 TWD) 
for 18 calendar months, this is valued  to Fourty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State 
Dollars only  in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even  during the 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 Haider Hanoon 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 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 was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in  my bank. So, 
Fourty 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 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 procentange 70/30. 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 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 instruct  them to release the 
deposit to you. With these: all is done. I am  aware of the consequences of this proposal.

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 ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my 
proposal. You may not know this but people like  myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable 
situations run the  whole private banking 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 come 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 wont pass me by. I ask that you  do not destroy my chance, if you will not work 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 pro
 vide 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 my official email  account. Contact me only through the numbers I 
will provide for you  and also through the email account that i will provide therein in this  
email. Further more be informed that the fact that you are a foreigner give  you the privilege to 
stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as my  deceased client had no relation all his family 
died with him during  the war and I can not use my relation because its not accepted here in  Hong 
Kong. Also I am very confident that we will be able to establish  the trust that is needed to 
complete this deal and all that I need  from the time been is your willingness and commitment so 
that we can end this in
 the next one weeks.

What you need to understand about this transaction is that I will make  sure that it passes through 
all international banking laws regards to  this I will take care of all the expenses and the cost 
of retaining  the service of my Attorney to give the transaction the proper documentation that is 
required to perfect the finishing. Your only  obligation in this transaction will be to set up two 
offshore accounts  that can accommodate these funds and I will give you more light later  once you 
agree to partner with me. Like I said before there is no risk involve as it will pass through  
international banking laws and all documents related to this  transaction will be sent to you by 
post for your perusal and trust.

I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines  are not secure lines as they 
are periodically monitored to assess our  level of customer care in line with our Total Quality 
Management  Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again,  note I am a family 
man, I have wife and children. 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 nothing gained and that success and  
riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth  I have learned from my 
private banking clients. Do not betray my  confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a 
meeting,  soon. Should you be interested I will prefer you to send me your FULL
