Dear Sir/Madam,
Urgent Business Proposal From: Mr. Chow Lee

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. 
Chow Lee,
a credit officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I 
have an
urgent business proposal for you. Before the 
U.S and
Iraqi war our client Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan 
who was
with the Iraqi forces and also businessman 
made a
numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar 
months, with a
value of thirty five million United State Dollars 
in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was 
to him, even during the war which began in 
2003. Again
after the war another notification was sent and 
no response came from him. We later find out 
that the
General along with his wife and only daughter 
had been
killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit 
home.You can read more about the bombings

that Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan did not declare 
next of kin in his official papers including the 
work of his bank deposit. And he also confided

me knew of his deposit in my bank.

laws here and to effect the change of beneficiary

you at
this stage is for you to provide me with your Full
