Mr.Huang Yanxiong Hang Seng Bank Ltd. Des Voeux Rd. Branch,Central Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Huang Yanxiong credit officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have a concealed business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client General. Mohammed Ridzuan who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war early this year. 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. Mohammed Ridzuan 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 laws of my country at the expiration three 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. Mohammed Ridzuan so that you will be able to receive his funds. 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, we shall share in the ratio of 65% for me, 35% for you.Should you be interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication, you can and I will provide you with more details of this operation. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated. I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below: email@example.com and finally after that I shall furnish you with more informationís about this operation. Kind Regards Mr.Huang Yanxiong Contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org
