83, Des Voeux Road., 

Central HK,

Hong Kong.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Terry Wan, director of operations of the Hang Seng 
Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business suggestion for you.Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client 
Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan who was with the Iraqi forces and also businessman made a numbered fixed 
deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United 

Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which 
began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from 
him. We later find out that the General along with his wife and only daughter had been killed 

during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.You can read more about the bombings on visiting 

site below:

After further investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan  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 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 of 5 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. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan  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 an

attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen. 
Aadel Akgaal Bastaan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you toprovide 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 this 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


Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall then share in the 
ratio of 70% for me, 30% for you. Should you be interested please send me your full names, private 
phone/fax and current residential address  and I will prefer you reach me on my private email 
address below:

And finally after that I shall provideyou with more details of this operation.Your earliest 
response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mr. Terry Wan
