Good Day ,

I am Mr. Patrick K. W. Chan. Executive Director and Chief Financial
Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Hong Kong.We had a client in my bank
from iraqi.During the U.S and Iraqi war our client Col. Hosam Hassan
who was with the Iraqi forces and also a business man made a numbered
fixed deposit for 24 calendar months, with a value of Thirty Million
United State Dollars($30,000,000.00) 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 found out that Col. Hosam Hassan
along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war
in a bomb blast that hit their home.

After further investigation it was also discovered that our client
Col.Hosam 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 at my office he told me to make
the deposit secret and that no one should know about the deposit in my
bank. So, Thirty Million United State Dollars($30,000,000.00)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 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 Col.Hosam 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 Col.
Hosam Hassan,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 of probate in your favour for the transfer 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 to 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 then share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you.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 provide you with more details of this

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Mr. Patrick K. W. Chan.
