Hello Friend,
I am Mr. Shung Hin Hui Edwin a manager on investor relations in Standard Chartered Bank, Hong Kong. I have a business suggestion for you.
In February 2005 our customer Yashua Mageed Hedaya who was a politician and also business man made a numbered cash lodgement for 24 months, with a value of Fifteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch.
We have sent him several letters and emails before and after the maturity. We later find out that the politician was killed as he was living is political party meeting in late 2006.
On investigation it was revealed that Yashua Mageed Hedaya 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 lodgement in my bank. So, Fifteen millions Five 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 to the laws of my country at the expiration of six 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 Yashua Mageed Hedaya so that you will be able to receive his funds.
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 60% for me, 40% for you.
If interested send your response to my personal email address:(
Best Regards,,
Edwin Shung Hin Hui.
