Hang Seng Bank Ltd

Hong Kong.

Good Day,

Let me start by introducing 
myself. I am Mr. Cheung Pui director of operations of the Hang Seng 
Bank Ltd. 

I have a obscured business suggestion for you.

Before the 
U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Bassem who was with the Iraqi 
forces and also business man 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 notice was sent to him, even during the  early days of the war.

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 bomb blast that hit their 

After further investigation it was also discovered that Major 
Fadi Basem 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 will ever 
come forward to claim it. 

What bothers me most is that according to 
the  laws of my country at the expiration 6 years 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 Major Fadi 
Bassem so that you will be able to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so 
that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that 
will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next 
of kin to Major Fadi Basem , all that is required from you at this 
stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that 
the attorney can commence his job.

 After you have been made the next 
of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and 
secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for 
the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.

There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a 
legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary 
documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters 
concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your 
nominated bank account we shall negotiate our sharing percentage and 
agreed on it.

Should you be interested please send me your full names 
and current residential address and I will prefers you to reach me on 
the email address below ( and finally after 
that i shall provide you with more details of this operation.

earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mr. Cheung Pui
