It is indeed my pleasure to write you this letter, which I believe 
will be a surprise to you as we have never met before, and I am deeply 
sorry if I have in any manner disturbed your privacy. Please forgive 
this unusual manner to contact you, but this particular letter is of 
exceptional and very private nature. There is absolutely going to be a 
great doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this email, 
coupled with the fact that, so many individuals have taken possession 
of the Internet to facilitate their deeds, thereby making it extremely 
difficult for genuine and legitimate business class persons to get 
attention and recognition. There is no way for me to know whether I 
will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write and reach out 
to you.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Simon Wong credit officer 
of Dah Sing Bank Ltd.I have a beneficial business suggestion for you. 

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mr. Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah 
who was a contractor to the Iraqi forces and also business man and 
deputy governor of Baghdad, made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 
calendar months, with a value of Twenty-four Million,Five hundred 
thousand United States Dollars only in my branch [US$24,500,000.00]. 

Upon maturity several notices were sent to him, even during the war. 
Again after further much notification to his business address and 
still no response came from him. We later found out that Mr Hatem 
Kamil Abdul Fatah was killed in a drive-by shooting, and his entire 
family died in a bomb blast that hit their home respectively After 
further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Hatem Kamil 
Abdul Fatah 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 States 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 three 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 Mr.Hatem Kamil Abdul Tatah 
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 contacted an attorney that will 
prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of 
kin to Mr.Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah,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 favour 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 to 
adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the 
necessary documents. 

Please endeavour 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 70% for me and 
30% for you. 

Should you be interested please send me your private phone and fax 
numbers for easy communication, you can write me via my private box: 
( Email : ), and I will provide you with more 
details of this operation.Your earliest response to this letter will 
be appreciated. 

Kind Regards,
