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 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. HosamHassan and his family had been killed during the 
war in bomb blast that hit their home.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Col. Hosam Hassan 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, 
Thirty million United State Dollar 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 laws of my country at the expiration 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 Col. Hosam Hassan 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 contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the 
next of kin to Col. Hosam Hassan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide 
me with your Full Names 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.

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.

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 you.

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 to reach me on my private Email address below:
Email: (

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.
