I am Mr.Joseph Yun, credit officer of the China Merchant Bank.I have a concealed business 
suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client Gen.Talfik Haddad who was with the Iraqi forces and also 
business man made a numbered fixed 
deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Three Million,Six Hundred Thousand United 
State Dollars only in my branch.
Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war.Again after the war another 
notification was sent and still  
no response came from him. We later find out that the General and his family had been killed during 
the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. After further investigation it was also discovered 
that the General 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 Three Million,Six 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 three 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 Gen.Talfik Haddad so that you will be able to receive 
his funds.WHAT IS TO BE DONE:
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 the late General,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  file 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 
There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the 
attorney will prepare all the necessary 
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 share in the ratio of 65% for me, 30% 
for you and 5%for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation.
