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
