Mr.Yi Kwan,
Standard Chartered Bank,Hong Kong
Dear Friend
Thank you for giving me your time. Please be patient and read my e-mail
to you.

I am Mr. Mr.Yi Kwan,  Transfer Supervisor On Investment in
Standard Chartered Bank,Hong Kong I have an obscured business
suggestion for you, I am contacting you concerning an investment placed
under our banks management 6 years ago. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our
client customer Gen.Aadeel Agaal Bastaan, who was with the Iraqi forces
and also businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar
months, with a value of Twenty one million Five Hundred Thousand United
State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to
him, even during the war, which began in 2003. Again after the war
another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We
later find out that the General 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 discovered that Gen.Aadeel Agaal
Bastaan 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, Twenty one million Five Hundred Thousand United State
Dollars is still in my bank, my suggestion to you is that I will like
you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Gen.Aadeel Agaal
Bastaan so that you will be able to receive his funds.

I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we
shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the
necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen.Aadeel
Agaal Bastaan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to
state your willingness and trust to help me with this so that the
attorney can commence his job. After you have stated this, the attorney will
also fill 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 this will be done after you must
have sent your personal information and identification and seriousness to
conclude this for me without any problems.
there is no risk involved at all in this 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. Once the funds have been transferred to your
nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for
