Good Day,

I am Mr. Alexander A Flockhart Assistance 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 ($30,000,000.00) 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. Hosam Hassan along with his wife and only 
daughter had been killed during the war in a 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 Dollars 
($30,000,000.00) 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 7 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government 
if nobody applies to claim the funds.

attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary 
approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account 
that will be provided by you.

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 issue.
