Good Day,

Let me start by introducing 
myself. I am Mr. Chen Guangyuan, a foreign operations manager of the 
BANK OF CHINA,HONG KONG. 

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 Eight Million United 
State Dollars only in my branch.

Upon maturity several notice was sent 
to him, even during the war early this year. 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, Eight 
Million 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 of 3 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.

WHAT IS TO BE DONE:

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 it in the 
ratio 50% for me, 45% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during 
the 
transaction.

Should you be interested please send me your full 
names and current residential address and I will prefer you to reach me 
on the email address below:
 
( chen_gyuan5@yahoo.com.hk ) 
 
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

Mr. Chen Guangyuan
