Hong Kong.

Good Day,

Let me start by introducing 
myself.I am Mr. Ming Yang director of operations of the Hang Seng Bank 
Ltd.I have an obscured business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and 
Iraqi war our client Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan 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. You can read more about the bombings on visiting these 
sites below:


After further investigation 
it was also discovered that Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan  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. 

bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the 
expiration 5 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the 
HongKong 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. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan  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 an attorney that will prepare the necessary document 
that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan, 
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 
of probate in your favour for the move of the funds to an account that 
will be provided by you.There is no risk involved at all in this 
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 then share in 
the ratio of 70% for me, 30% for you.

Should you be interested please 
send me your,

1,Full names,
2,private phone number,
residential address,
And I will prefer you reach me on my private email 
address below:( and finally after that I shall 
provide you with more details of this operation.

Your earliest 
response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Ming
