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.Patrick Chan. Executive
Director and Chief Financial Officer) of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd.Sunshine
City Branch, Shop 16, Blocks C & D, Sunshine City, Ma On Shan, New
Territories, Hong Kong. I have an obscured Business suggestion for you.

In October, 2002, my late client Ghazi Musa Hassan, Iraqi Crude oil
merchant made a numbered fixed deposit of Nineteen Million, Five Hundred
Thousand United State Dollars (US$19,500,000.00) 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, Nine
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 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 favour 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 favour.

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 centre of
relevance in my life. Please endeavour 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

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 information's about this
operation. Your earliest response to this letter through my private email
address: ( will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Mr.Patrick Chan.
