Dear Sir,

I sincerely seek your honest assistance and contribution to this crucial business that is very 
important to me and if you are not interested in the
proposal, please accept my apologies in advance.

I am Mr. Iqbal Ahmed Khan, the former Managing Director Hong Kong & Shanghai Bancorp HSBC Amanah 
Finance, London, United Kingdom and the chief executive
officer, HSBC Middle East, Dubai, UAE.

In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of 20.5 million dollars in an account that belongs 
to a foreign customer of the bank who died alongside
his wife, Children and other relatives in the Air France concord plane crash bound for New York in 
their plan for a world cruise. See the link below:

This late customer has an account valued at 20.5 million dollars. Already, the bank has issued a 
notice for any of his next of kin to come forward and
redeem his money or the bank will take over his account.

Unfortunately from our investigations and confirmations from his attorney he has no family member 
to stand in as his next of kin. Since the bank has been

unsuccessful in locating the relatives of the deceased for some years now, and with the bank giving 
a deadline, I now seek your consent to present you as
the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at 20.5 million dollars 
could be paid to you and then you and I can share the 
money. 50% to me, 40% for you and 10% for miscellaneous expenses that might arise. I have been in 
contact with his attorney who is also a part of this
deal, who also has all the necessary information that can be used to back up any Claim we may make.

Obviously we need to conclude this business as soon as possible before the money goes into the 
Bank's Treasury because the HSBC banking law and guideline
stipulates that if such fund remains un-claimed for 7 years, the money would be declared 
unserviceable by the bank particularly and transferred into the
Bank's Treasury as un-claimed debt.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this 
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of the law. Trust me; this is a Risk free business relationship.

Please get in touch with me via my personal email address: and send me your 
full name and address, telephone and fax numbers to
enable us discuss further about this transaction.

Best regards,

Mr.Iqbal Ahmed Khan.
