Mr Patrick K. W. Chan. ( Good Day Friend, 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 life 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 office that no one except m knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Thirty 
million ($30,000,000.00) 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 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. MODALITIES: I wa nt 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 sh are in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for 
you. 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 operation. Your earliest 
response to this letter will be appreciated. Kind Regards, Patrick K.W. Chan.
