Subject: DETAILS OF OUR PROJECT
Thank you for your response,Let me introduce myself again. I am Mr Joseph Poon Managing Director and Deputy Chief Executive of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed who was a business merchant and a contractor with the Iraqi Government but a citizen of SAUDI ARABIA,Made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months(2Years), with a value of Twenty Two million Four Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only 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 find out that Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit His Resident.
After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed 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 Two million Four 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 3 years and six month 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 Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed so that you will be able to receive his funds for us.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE:
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 Mr.Fayez Abdulaziz Mohammed,with the information you had provided the attorney will 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 move 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,however I would like to be sure of your willingness, trustworthiness and commitment to execute this transaction with me,I cannot afford to compromise these virtues.Considering the money involved,it is necesary for me to be sure of the person to whom I will be entrusting this transaction,my trust is not given out lightly, I need to be convinced that you are a matured person with some intergrity.Furthermore, if we follow up this transaction diligently it would be completed within 8 working days.What I expect from you is trust and commitment, I want this large sum of money transfered with your assistance.I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction,I shall be waiting for your response and assurance.Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
