Good Day,

    I am Mr. Patrick K. W. Chan. Executive Director and General 
Manager of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our 
client Col. Hosam Hassan who was with the Iraqi forces and also 
businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with 
a value of Thirty million United State Dollars($30,000,000.00) 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 Col. Hosam Hassan 
along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war 
in a bomb blast that hit their home. After further investigation it 
was also discovered that Col.Hosam Hassan 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, 
Thirty million ($30,000,000.00) 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 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 Col.Hosam Hassan 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 Col. 
Hosam Hassan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you 
to provide me with your Full Names, Contact phone and fax numbers 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 to 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 you can 
reach me on my private email address below:
 And finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this
     Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
        Kind Regards,
        Patrick K.W. Chan.
