Dear Friend,

Let me start by introducing myself.I am Mr.Joseph C Y Poon Managing 
Director and Deputy Chief Executive of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.I have a 
secured business suggestion for you.
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 found 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 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 offi ce 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 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.Joseph C Y Poon.
