Dear Partner, 

I am Mr.  Zhang tiejun, Foreign operations manager, Bank of China, Hong Kong.

Though I have an obscured business suggestion for you, but I am 100% sure that it is 
achievable if we work in one spirit and if a mutual understanding of this deal is 
reached. Before the last U.S and Iraqi war began, a client to the bank of China; Mr. 
Ghazi Musa Hassan who was with the Iraqi forces and also a private oil business man 
made a numbered fixed deposit with a value of Seventeen million three hundred thousand 
United State Dollars (US$17.3m) in my branch. Upon maturity of the deposit, several 
notices were sent to him even during the war. Again after the war several notifications 
were sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that Mr. Ghazi Musa 
Hassan and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their 
home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil reserve well/bunker was located. 
After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Ghazi Musa Hassan 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 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 of seven {7} 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 Mr. Ghazi Musa Hassan so that you will be able to receive 
this fund. 



I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we come out 
successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back 
you up as the next of kin to Mr. Ghazi Musa Hassan all that is required from you is to 
provide me with your Full Contact Address and Full Names, so that the attorney can 
commence with his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also 
fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of 
probate in your favour for the movement of the funds to an account that will be 
provided by you. We are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare 
the entire necessary document in your favour. There is a reward for this project and it 
is a task well worth undertaking. There is no risk involved at all in the matter, I 
have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is for you refusing to work with 
me or you alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune 
has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the centre of relevance in my 

Please Endeavour 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 70% for me, 30% for you. I send you this mail not without a measure of 
fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing 
gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Please 
observe this instruction religiously. 

Before I commence, I will need you to send me a copy of any form of your identification 
(international passport or Drivers License) I want to be sure that I am transacting 
with the correct person. As soon as I get these from you, I will commence the paper 
work. I hope you will understand why I need all these. The money in question is big and 
I want to ensure that I know you well before I proceed to give you all the details to 
commence the project. I will send my international/drivers license the moment I receive 
your passport for your perusal and trust. 

I will send the name and contact details of the bank and their website to you so that 
you can commence communication with them. Please note that our local telephones lines 
could be intercepted easily, so they are not safe for the project. Anyway I am trying 
to get a more private and secured line. This is why I have installed a more private 
communication via email it is the best at the moment. 

As at this junction, the Funds is been deposited in a bank in Europe.The question is 
that i am looking for a God Fearing Human who can Transfer these Funds to his/her 
norminated Bank Account.

Ensure that you keep this project confidential; do not discuss it with anybody, because 
of the confidential nature of this transaction and for the sake of my work. Please do 
not disclose to anyone, even my wife does not have any knowledge of this deal and I 
don&#8217;t intend to disclose any part of the deal to her until we have successfully 
transferred the funds out of my bank here in Hong Kong. 

Please reply soonest.
Best Regards, 

Mr. Zhang tiejun
