Dear Friend, Let me start by introducing myself to you fully. I am Mr. Chen Guan, Foreign Operations Manager of a Bank in 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 of 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. We later found out that the Ali Hussein and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home 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. 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thank you for your time and understanding Kind Regards, Mr. Chen Guan
