CHEUNG PUI |HANG SENG BANK LTD. |DES VOEUX RD. BRANCH, |CENTRAL HONG KONG, |HONG KONG. |EMAIL: | | |Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr Cheung Pui director of |operations Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business suggestion for |you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Bassem who was with |the Iraqi forces and also a business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 |calendar months, with a value of twenty four millions five hundred thousand |United State Dollars in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to |him, even during the war. Again after the war another notification was sent |and still no response came from him.We later found out that the Major and his |family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. | |After further investigations it was also discovered that Major Fadi Basem 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. | |As you can see,Twenty 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 most is that according to the by-laws of my country at the |expiration of 6 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 Major Fadi Bassem so that you will be able to receive his funds. | |WHAT IS TO BE DONE: | |I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we will come |out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary |document that will back you up as the next of kin to Major Fadi Basem, all |that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your |full name and address so that the attorney can commence his job, after you |have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on |your behalf and secure the necessary documentation for the movement of the |funds to an account that will be provided by you. | |There is no risk involved at all in the 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,we shall share in the ratio of 70% |for me, 25% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of this |operation. Should you be interested please send me your private phone and fax |numbers for easy communication, you can write me via my private box () and |finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation. | |Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated. | |Kind Regards, | |Mr. Cheung Pui. | |---------------------------------------------------------------- |This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program. |
