Good Day,

I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and
Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited.

BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman and also who was with the Iraqi
forces, made a fixed deposit, of Twenty Two million Five Hundred Thousand
United State Dollars only in my branch, a number of notices was sent to him,
before the war which began in 2003 and also after the war but, no response
came from him. We later found out that Brigadier Amer Ali Nayef was shot dead
along with his son, Khalid Amer also in the force as they left the family
home for work in the south of the city.

After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late Brigadier, did not
declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of
his bank deposit. What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country
at the expiration of 6 years the funds will be reverted to the ownership of
the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes for the funds, Against this scenery,
I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want you to act
as the beneficiary of the deposit, there is no risk involved in this matter,
as we are going to adopt a legitimate method and the attorney will prepare
all the necessary documents.

All I require is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be
executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach
of the law. Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this
email if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you.

All confirmable documents to back up the claims will be made available to you
prior to your acceptance and as soon as I receive your return mail Via my
email address (

and I will let you know what is required of you.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Best Regards,
Mr. Vincent Cheng
