This email with the subject "Business Proposal !!!" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 07 Mar 2010 03:39:02 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Mr. Chen Guangyuan"<>, although it may have been spoofed.


Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Chen Guangyuan, Foreign Operations Manager of the Bank 
of China (Hong 

kong). I have an obscured business suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Ghazi Musa Hassan 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 Ghazi Musa 

Hassan and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.  After 
further investigation it 

was also discovered that 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 
(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 Ghazi Musa Hassan so that you will be able to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I 
will contact my 

attorney to prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Ghazi Musa 
Hassan, all that is 

required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that 
the attorney can 

commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for 
claims on your behalf 

and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to 
an account that will 

be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a 
legalized method and the 

attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in 
all matters 

concerning this issue. Once the fund have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall 
share in the ratio 

of 60% for me, 40% for you. 

Should you be interested please send me your fullnames and current residential address and I will 
prefer you to reach 

me on this email address( which is my private email address and finally 
after that i shall 

provide you with more details of this operation.

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Chen Guangyuan.
