Good Day, Let me start by introducing myself.I am Mr.Marvin K.T Cheung 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.What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 4 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Col. Hosam Hassan so that you will be able to receive his funds. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me,35% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation. Should you be interested please send the information?s below, 1. Full names and Age.............. 2. Private phone number............... 3. Current residential address........... I will prefer you reach me on my private Email address below: Email: email@example.com And finally after that I shall provide you with more details on this transaction. Your earliest response to this letter will be highly appreciated. Kind Regards, Mr.Marvin K.T Cheung.
