Good Day,
It is understandable that you might be a little bit
apprehensive because you do not know me but I have a
lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to
share with you.
Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Chen
Guangyuan operations manager of the Bank of China
(Hong Kong), Eastern Commercial Centre, 393-407
Hennessy Road,Wan Chai,Hong Kong. . I have an obscured
business suggestion for you.
In June, 2001, My late client Ghazi Musa Hassan, an
Iraqi Crude oil merchant made a numbered fixed deposit
of Twenty-one million Five Hundred Thousand United
State Dollars (US$21,500,000.00) only in my branch.
Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even
during the war (U.S and Iraqi war), Four years ago
(2003). Again after the war another notification was
sent and still no response came from him. We later
found out that Ghazi Musa Hassan,  and his family had
been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit
his home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well
After further investigation it was also discovered
that Ghazi Musa Hassandid 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-one million 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 laws
of my country at the expiration six {6} 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 Ghazi Musa Hassan so that you will be able to
receive his funds.

attorney that will prepare the necessary document that
will back you up as the next of kin to Ghazi Musa
Hassan, all that is required from you is 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 movement of
the funds to an account that will be provided by you.
We are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney
will prepare all the necessary documents in your
There is a reward for this project and it is a task
well worth undertaking. There is no risk involved at
all in this matter, I have evaluated the risks and the
only risk I have here is for you refusing to work with
me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows
of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a
name that has planted you into the center of relevance
in my life. 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 70% for me, 30%
