business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client 
Gen. Hemood A. Hemood  who was with the Iraqi forces and also 
businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with 
a value of Twenty Four 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 the General along with his wife and only daughter 
had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.

Hemood  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, Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand 
United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one willknow of
