Hang Seng Bank Ltd
Sai Wan Ho Branch
171 Shaukiwan Road
Hong Kong.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Cheung Pui,director of operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Sai Wan Ho Branch.I have a business proposal for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war,our client Major Fadi Basem 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 Hundred Thousand
United State Dollars
only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice 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 Major and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Major Fadi Basem 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 Four 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 to the laws of my country at the expiration 3 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 Major Fadi Basem 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 contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Major Fadi
Basem,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 letter of probate in your favor for the transfer of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.
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 to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me,25%for you,and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of the operation. Should you be interested please send me your full names and current residential address and telephone number.

Once i get your response to co-operate,i shall provide you with more details of this operation. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr.Cheung Pui

Dear Mr. Pui,
    I read your email. Thanks for considering me for the offer. I feel so bad for Major Basem. Imagine loosing all that money. If you are certain that you can no longer wait for him to retrieve his money, this may be a chance of a lifetime. You could not have picked a better time.
Do you ever come to the US?. It will be a good idea to meet in person. Just in case you cannot come here, could you please send me a photo, and a phone number, so that I can contact you in person. If it is not such a good idea to do so at this time, I will understand. I will like to work with you, but I need to place a name and a face. I need to discuss my percentage in this transaction. Moreso, it is probably not so safe to do such transaction in writing do to the nature of the Internet. Whatever happens, please get in touch soon.
Thank you

Dear Rose,  
Thank you very much for your mail and your williness to assist me in this transaction,Let me assure you that this transaction is legitimate, all I need is your assurance that I will get my share of the money when it get to your account, we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me, 25%for you, and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of the operation.

Like I said earlier, due to this issue on my hands now, it became necesary for me to seek your assistance. I will appreciate if you can assist me in executing this project, and also to help me in investing my money in your country. You should not have anything to worry about. I will do everything legally required to ensure that the project goes smoothly, it shall pass through all Laws of International Banking. Having resolved to entrust this transaction into your hands, I want to remind you that, it needs your commitment and diligent follow up.If you work seriously with me, the entire transaction should be over in a few days.

Please remove all doubts from your mind so that we can work well together to actualise this transaction.To prove my authenticity,i will be attaching my international passport and my family picture for your perusal. I also have the certificate of deposit that Major Fadi Basem was issued when he made the fixed deposit at my bank.
I am now in contact with a foreign bank in London U.K.I chose this country because we can be able to circumvent their tax laws which are relatively mild compared to other EU countries. I will open an online account in your name in this foreign bank. As soon as i have opened this account, i will transfer the funds into it from my bank here in Hong Kong.This is the best way,I have found,it will protect us from my bank.I want us to enjoy this money in peace when we conclude the transaction. So you should listen to my instructions and follow them judiciously. Also You have to know that I cannot transfer this money in my name as my bank will be aware that it is from me. This is where I need you.
I will obtain a certificate of deposit from this bank which I will send to you later, this will make you the bonafide owner of the funds. After this, the money will be banked online for both of us. We can then instruct the bank to transfer our various shares into your home bank accounts. I will also perfect the documentations with the assistance of my attorney to give the transaction the necessary legal backing.
I need your total devotion and trust to see this through. I know we have not met before,but I am very confident that we will be able to establish the necessary trust that we need to execute this project.
Also,I will need you to send me a copy of any form of your identification (Driver's licence or International passport), mailing address (not P.O.Box) and your telephone number, as soon as I get this from you, I will commence the paper work. I hope you will understand why I need all these, like i said earlier, I will  attach my international passport to this mail for your perusal and trust and also my family picture.
As soon as i receive your positive response,i will get intouch with the bank in U.K to open the account in your name. Our local telephones lines could be intercepted easily,so they are not safe for this project.This is why I have installed a more private communication through email. Ensure that you keep this project confidential, do not discuss it with anybody, because of the confidential nature of this transaction and my work.
Please all further correspondence between us should be through this email account.
My Regards,
Wang Qin Cheung Pui.

Dear Mr. Pui,
Thank you for your immediate reply. You look like a nice family man. I hope your family is well. I understand the seriousness of this matter. However, I do not completely trust the information sent via email. As much as I want to believe that you are quite serious about this transaction, I will like you to send me copies of the following: a photograph of the front entrance of your bank with the signage. A photo of you inside the bank. your work identity, and your birth certificate. I need to know what I am dealing with. I hope you understand.
If obtaining these things will be difficult for you, let me know. I may have some other ideas about raising money soon. I will hate to miss out on this good offer.
Thank you
