HANG SENG BANK LTD.
14 HENLEY ST. BRANCH,
CENTRAL LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM.
Let me start by introducing myself. I am
Mr. Mansoor Ahmad 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. Farden Benson 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.This was done in the HONK
KONG branch before i was transfered to the london
branch of this same BANK Upon maturity several
notice was sent to him, even during the war early
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. Farden Benson 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 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 laws of my country
at the expiration 4years 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. Ibrahim Moussa 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
Gen. Farden Benson, 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 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 bankaccount we shall share in the ratio of 45%
for me, 45% for you and 10% for anyexpenses incurred
during the course of this operation. Should you be
interested please send me your Full Name,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.
