Let me start by introducing myself. I am Dr.Huang Lee Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Sai Wan Ho Branch.I have a mutual beneficial business suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client Major Fadi Basem who was with the Iraqi forces and also a business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value "DEPOSIT" only in my branch.Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war four years ago(2003).Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that the Major and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
My suggestion to you is that i will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Major Fadi Basem to assist in repatriating the balance of his account with my Bank to another account own by you, before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the share holders of this bank,so that they can share his funds as dividends amongst themselves. The said Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next fourteen days.
Ever since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for some months now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities of transfer. I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you, this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Absolute confidentiality is required from you.Besides,I will use my connection to get some documents to back up the fund so that the fund can not be question by any authority.
More information await you in my next response to your email message.
Please, you should send your response to my private email at email@example.com
Treat as very urgent.
