I am Mr. Simon Wong credit officer of the Dah Sing Bank Ltd.I have a concealed business suggestion 
for you.  

Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client General. Hassan Karimu who was with the Iraqi forces and 
also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty 
millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch.

Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war. Again after the war another 
notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that the General and 
his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home. After further 
investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Hassan Karimu 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 millions 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 to the laws of my country at the expiration seven (7) 
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 Gen. Hassan Karimu 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 Gen. Hassan Karimu 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 in the ratio of 70% for me, 25% 
for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation. Should you be 
interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication, you can write 
me via this email box and i will provide you with more details of this 
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated. 
Kind Regards
Simon Wong
