Dear Friend,
Let me start by introducing myself.I am Mr.Hung Pham director of operations 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 notice 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 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 lasttime he was at my office
that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank.So,Thirty million
United State Dollars($30,000,000.00)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 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.
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
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.
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
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 me your full names and current residential address and I will prefers you
to reach me on the email address below
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.Hung Pham.
