Good Day, Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Ming Yang Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd Hong Kong.l have a secured business proposal for you.Before the U.S. and Iraqi war our client Col. Hosam Hassan who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Four Million Five Houndred United State Dollars($24,500,000 ) only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2002. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find 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. 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. 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. 4,Occupation l will like to know if you are willing to assist me before i can give you more information about this transaction. lf you are interested i will like you to reach me on my private email address below and finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this transaction.
