This email with the subject "BUSINESS PROPOSAL.." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 21 Jan 2009 06:12:10 -0500 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "MR TAN WONG" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Tan Wong director of
operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business
suggestion for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Basem who was with
theIraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18
calendar months, with a value of Twenty Four millions Five Hundred
Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several
notice 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 bomb
blast that hit their home. After further investigation 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. So,Twenty Four million Five Hundred
Thousand United State Dollar($24,500,000,) 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 7years 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
Basem 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 will contact my attorney to 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 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

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 65% for me, 30% for you and 5% will
be use to pay back any partner at the end of the transfer for any money
spent in the process of the transfer. Should you be interested please send
me your full names and current residential address and I will prefer you
to reach me on this email address( which is my
private email address and finally after that i shall provide you with more
details of this

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
