Dear Sir,
 Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Wang Qin credit officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.  I 
have a concealed business suggestion for you.Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client General. 
Ibrahim Moussa who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit 
for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars 
only in my branch.  Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war early this 
year. 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 bomb blast that 
hit their home.After further investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Ibrahim Moussa 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. S!
o, Twenty millions 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 to the laws of my 
country at the expiration 3 years and 10 months 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 thatI will like you as a foreigner to stand as the 
next of kin to Gen. Ibrahim Moussa 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 Gen. Ibrahim Moussa, 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 weare 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 share in the ratio of 
70% for me, 25% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation. 
Should you be interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication 
and I will provide you with more details of this operation.
 Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
Kind Regards,
Mr. Wang  Qin
