Director Of Operations,
Hang Seng Bank.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Cheung Pui director of 
operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.
I have a obscured business suggestion for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Major Fadi Basem who was with 
the Iraqi forces and also business man, made a numbered fixed deposit 
for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Four millions Five Hundred 
Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several 
notice was sent to him because before i became director of operations 
we had a very close relationship, even during the war. Again after the 
war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. 
We later found out that the Major and his family had been killed during 
the war in bomb blast that hit their home.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Major Fadi 
Basem 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 millions Five Hundred Thousand United State 
Dollars 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 to the laws of my 
country at the expiration 8 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 Major Fadi Basem so that you 
will be able to receive his funds on our behalf. 


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we 
shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare 
the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to 
Major Fadi Basem , 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 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 the 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 share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you . 
Should you be interested please send me your full names and current 
residential address  along with your phone number and I will prefer you to 
reach me on the email address below ( and finally 
after that i shall provide you with more details of this operation.

If you are interested your earliest response to this letter will be 

Kind Regards,

Mr. Cheung Pui
Director Of Operations,
Hang Seng Bank.
