Dear Friend, Let me start by introducing myself, I am Mr. Michael WU Wei Kuo, GBS, Managing Director & Deputy Chief Executive of Hang Seng Bank LTD. Hong Kong. I would appreciate your response very much. I have outlined the detailed story of how this transaction came about and also I got your email address discretely when I was in search of someone to assist me conclude this transaction. Please read carefully. Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client General Zaiki Taha Abdel who was with the Iraqi Government but a citizen of SAUDI ARABIA, made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months (2Years), with a value of Thirty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that General Zaiki Taha Abdel along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast t The last time he was at my office he confided in me that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Thirty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only 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 3 years and six month 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 General Zaiki Taha Abdel so that you will be able to receive his funds. If interested, provide me with your Full names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. Regards from, Michael WU Wei Kuo.
