Hang Seng Bank Ltd
Sai Wan Ho Branch
Shaukiwan Road
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 home.

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 of 
5 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.

Your earliest 
response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mr. Cheung
