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 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 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 60% for me, 40% for you.Should you be
interested please send me your,
1,Full names,
2,Private phone number,
3,Current residential address.

And I will prefer you reach me on my private email addressbelow;

and finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this
