Dear Friend,

I have a business suggestion for you. let me start by introducing myself
to you fully. I am Mr. Chen Guan, Foreign Operations Manager of the Bank
of China (Hong kong). Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Ali Hussein
who was with the Iraqi forces and also a businessman made a numbered fixed
deposit for 12 calendar months, with a value of Seventeen Million Three
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only into an account with 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 Ali Hussein and his family had been
killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home. After further
investigation it was also discovered that Ali Hussein 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, Seventeen Million
Three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars(US$17,300,000.00) 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 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 Ali Hussein so that you will be able to receive his funds.
Please reply to my private email for more Details ( Thank
you for your time and understanding

Kind Regards,
Mr. Chen Guan.
