Dear Friend,

Let me start by introducing myself.I am Mr Sin Wai Kin Executive Director
and Chief Financial Officer of the operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.I
have a secured business suggestion for you.Before the U.S and Iraqi war
our client Major Fadi Basem who was with the Iraqi forces and also
business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a
value of Thirty million United State Dollars ($30,000,000.00) only in my
branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war
early this year.Again after the war another notification was sent and
still no response came from him. We later found out that Major Fadi Basem
and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit
their home. After further investigations it was also discovered that Major
Fadi Basem 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,Thirty million United State
Dollars($30,000,000.00)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 4 years the funds will revert to the
ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a
foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Major Fadi Basem 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 have contacted an attorney that will prepare the
necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Major Fadi
Basem , 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 funds 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 the following informations

1. Full names
2. Private phone number
3. Current residential address.

I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below And finally
after that i shall provide you with more details of this transaction.Your
earliest response to this letter will be highly appreciated.


Kind Regards,

Mr. Sin Wai Kin
