Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Song Li Le Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai 

Wan Ho Branch, 171 Shaukiwan Road Hong Kong.An Iraqi named Haider 

Hanoon, a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of (346,736,899.68 

HKD) for 18 calendar months; this is valued to Forty Million Five 

Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in branch. Upon maturity 

several notices was sent to him,even during the war,three years ago 

(2005). 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 he was at my office that no one 

except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Forty 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 

percentage 50/50. 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 won’t 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 provide them with new opportunities.

There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth 

undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is 

from 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. Let’s 

share the blessing.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 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 week.

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 opening of offshore accounts that can accommodate 

these funds and I will give you more lightly later once you agree to

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
