Dear Friend, Let me start by introducing myself.I am Mr.Patrick Chan 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 Col. Hosam Hassan who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months in my bank.Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the late last year,no response came from him. After further investigation it was also discovered that Col. Hosam Hassan was killed in the war and declare no next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. So,Thirty Million United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one had never showed up 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 Col. Hosam Hassan.I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin.If interested do send your email to email@example.com for more details. Kind Regards, Mr.Patrick Chan
