Good Day,
I am Mr. Marvin K.T Cheung Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer
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
with a value of Thirty million United State Dollars ($30,000,000.00) only
in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him,and another
notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find
out that Col. Hosam Hassan along with his wife and only daughter had been
killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. 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. Please endeavor to observe utamost
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
60% for me, 35% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course
of this operation.
Should you be interested please contact me and  send the
information’s below,

1. Full names and Age................
2. Private phone number................
3. Current residential address...........
And finally after that I shall provide you with more details on this
transaction. I sincerely appreciate your interest, to assist me however I
would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and commitment
to execute this transaction with me, I cannot afford to compromise these
Considering the money involved, it is necessary for me to be sure of the
person to whom I will be entrusting this transaction; my trust is not
given out lightly, I need to be convinced that you are a matured person
with some integrity. Furthermore, if we follow up this transaction
diligently it would be completed within 8 working days.
What I expect from you is trust and commitment; I want this large sum of
money transferred with your assistance.
