Good Day ,

I am Mr. Patrick K. W. Chan. Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer 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 our client 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 United State Dollars($30,000,000.00)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
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
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
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 60% for me, 40% for you.Should you be interested
please send me your,
1,Full names,
2,Private phone number,
