 Good Day,
 Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Patrick K.W. Chan (Executive
Director and C hief Financial Officer) of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I
 have an obscured business suggestion 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 (Twenty Four million
Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars 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 the General along with his wife and 
 only  daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit
 their home.
 You can read more about the bombings on visiting this site below:  .
 After further investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Aadel  
Akgaal  Bastaan 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,  Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars
is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.
 bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the
expiration of 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 Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan
  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 Gen. Aadel
Akgaal  Bastaan, 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
  also fill  in  for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary
approval and   letter of  probate in your favor 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 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 please send me your the following:
 1. Full names
 2. Private phone/fax
 3. Current residential address 
 and I will prefer you 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
 Mr. Patrick Chan.
