Good Day,   

I am Mr. Vincent Cheng Hoi Chuen, GBS, JP Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking 
Corporation Limited.

Our client BRIGADIER AMER ALI NAYEF, a businessman and also who was with the Iraqi forces, 
made a fixed deposit, of Twenty Two million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my 
a number of notices was sent to him, before the war which began in 2003 and also after the war but, 
no response came from him. We later found out that Brigadier Amer Ali Nayef was shot dead along 
with his son, 
Khalid Amer also in the force as they left the family home for work in the south of the city. 

After more inquiry it was also discovered that the late Brigadier, 
did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank 
What bothers me most is according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 7 years the funds 
be reverted to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes for the funds, Against 
this scenery, 
I have all the information needed to claim these funds and I want you to act as the beneficiary of 
the deposit,

attorney will 
prepare all the necessary documents.

All I require is your honest co-operation and I guarantee that this will be executed under a 
legitimate arrangement
