BUSINESS REQUEST FROM MR. CHARLES FARUQUI REQUEST!!! Dear Sir/Madam, Greetings! Although, I do not know you in person, I have received your contact via business search on the internet yellow page; Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Charles Faruqi, banker and financial adviser to late Mrs. Nina Wang, who died on the 3rd of April, 2007. I have a profitable transaction for you. I was attending a business luncheon in January 2002 in china and I got introduced to Mrs. Nina Wang, a renowned Hong Kong's largest private property developer, Chinachem Group. She later employed my services as a banker and investment Consultant, three months later she invited me and told me of her desire to open a fixed deposit account, he could fail back to on retirement, under my professional guidance and based on my advice she made a fixed deposit of $12,500,000:00 USD (Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in one of the leading bank in Asia. The Hong Kong heiress, whose maiden name was Kung, was reported by local newspapers to be suffering from cancer, but that was never officially confirmed. "Chinachem Group's chairwoman Nina Wang Kung passed away on April 3rd 2007. Wang was ranked by Forbes Magazine as Asia's 35th richest person, having successfully battled her father-in- law for a multi-billion dollar estate left by her late husband Teddy Wang, a property tycoon who vanished more than a decade ago. I also discovered that Mrs. Nina Wang did not declare any next of kin in her official papers including the paper work of her bank deposit in Asia. And l remember she also confided in me the last time she was at my office that no one except me knew of her deposit in my bank. So, Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars is still lying in one of the leading bank in Asia and no one will ever come forward to claim it. You may visit: http://www.iht. com/articles/2007/04/20/news/hong.php What bothers me most is that, according to the laws of my country at the expiration of a numbers of 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 to stand as the next of kin to Mrs. Nina Wang so that you will be able to receive her funds. All legal documents to back up the claim as my client's next-of-kin will be provided by me. All I require is your honest, prudent and cooperation to enable us sees this transaction through.
