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.
Jeslie Chui, Senior Treasury Manager of Bank of China (Hong Kong),
Sunshine City Branch, Shop 16, Blocks C & D, Sunshine City, Ma On Shan,
New Territories, Hong Kong. I have a Business suggestion for you.

In October, 2002, my late client Ghazi Musa Hassan, an Iraqi Crude oil
merchant made a numbered fixed deposit of Ten million Eight Hundred
Thousand United State Dollars (US$10,800,000.00) only in my branch. Upon
maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war (U.S and
Iraqi war), Five 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 was:

After further investigation it was also discovered that Ghazi Musa Hassan
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
in my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Ten
million Eighth 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.


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 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 to 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 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% for you 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 success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold.
Please observe this instruction religiously.

Should you be interested please send me your,

1, Full Names,
2, Private Phone Number,
3, Current Residential Address,

And I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below and
finally after that I shall furnish you with more informationís about this
operation. Your earliest response to this letter through my private email
address:   will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Jeslie Chui.
