Dear  Friend,

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

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

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 a favorable percentage. That is: I will simply
nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to
you. We share the percentage 60/40. 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.
