I am Mr. Simon Wong, credit officer of the Dah Sing Bank Ltd.

I have a concealed business proposition for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi 
war, our client General Hassan Fawzi who was with the Iraqi forces and
also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months,
with a value of Forty Three Million Six Hundred Thousand United State
Dollars only 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 find out that the General and his family had been killed during
the war in bomb blast that hit their home. After further investigation,
it was also discovered that Gen. Hassan Fawzi 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, Forty Three Million, Six
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 to the laws of my country at the expiration three 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 Gen. Hassan Fawzi 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 Gen.
Hassan Fawzi,  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 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. There is no risk involved at all 
in the matter as we are going 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 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
( I will provide you with more details of this

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Simon Wong
