MR Wang Qin
Hang Seng Bank Ltd
Sai Wan Ho Branch
171 Shaukiwan Road
Hong Kong.  
Good Day,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.  
Wang Qin 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 Basem who was with the Iraqi forces and also 
business  man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, 
with a value  of Eight Million  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 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, Eight Million 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 of 3 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 Basem 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 
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  

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 it in the ratio 50% for 
me, 45% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the 

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. Wang Qin
