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), Shop 1021,United Centre 95 Queensway Hong Kong. I have an obscured business 
suggestion for you. 

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mr. Hamadi Hashem who was with the Iraqi forces and also 
business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months, with a value of Seventeen 
three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars (US$17,300,000.00) only in my branch. Upon maturity 
several notices was sent to him, even during the war early last year. Again after the war another 
notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that Mr. Hamadi Hashem 
his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where 
personal oil well was. 

After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. Hamadi Hashem 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 
time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Seventeen 
three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come 
to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration six 
years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim 
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. Hamadi Hashem 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 
an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to 
Hamadi Hashem, all that is required from you is to provide me with your Full Names and Address so 
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 
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 favor.

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 Endeavour to observe 
discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your 
bank account we shall share in the ratio of 75% for me, 20% for you and 5% for any incidental 
but this can be subjected to further negotiations. I send you this mail not without a measure of 
fear as to 
what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that 
and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Please observe this instruction religiously and 
send me your, 

1. Full Name
2. Private phone/fax number
3. Current residential address 

And I will prefer you reach me through my private tel/fax 00852 301 578 57 or email address and finally after that I should furnish you with more information's 
about this operation. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated. 

Kind Regards,

Mr.Chen Guangyuan.
