Good Day,
I sincerely seek your honest assistance and contribution to this crucial business that is very 
important to me and if you are not interested in the proposal, please accept my apologies in 
I am Mr. Iqbal Ahmed Khan, the Managing Director Hong Kong & Shanghai Bancorp HSBC Amanah Finance, 
London, United Kingdom and the chief executive officer, HSBC Middle East, Dubai, UAE.

In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of 20.5 million dollars in an account that belongs 
to a foreign customer of the bank who died alongside his wife, Children and other relatives in the 
Air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise. See the link 
This late customer has an account valued at 20.5 million dollars. Already, the bank has issued a 
notice for any of his next of kin to come forward and redeem his money or the bank will take over 
his account. Unfortunately from our investigations and confirmations from his attorney he has no 
family member to stand in as his next of kin. Since the bank has been unsuccessful in locating the 
relatives of the deceased for some years now, and with the bank giving a deadline, I now seek your 
consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account 
valued at 20.5 million dollars could be paid to you and then you and I can share the money. 50% to 
me, 40% for you and 10% for miscellaneous expenses that might arise. I have been in contact with 
his attorney who is also a part of this deal, who also has all the necessary information that can 
be used to back up any Claim we may make.
Obviously we need to conclude this business as soon as possible before the money goes into the 
Bank's Treasury because the HSBC banking law and guideline stipulates that if such fund remains 
un-claimed for 6 years, the money would be declared unserviceable by the bank particularly and 
transferred into the Bank's Treasury as un-claimed debt. 
All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this 
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. 
Trust me; this is a Risk free business relationship.
Please get in touch with me via my personal email address, and send me your full name and address, 
telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further about this transaction.
Best regards,
Mr.Iqbal Ahmed Khan
