Let me start by introducing myself. I am Dr. Steve Royal,
Director of Operations of an hsbc ltd Branch, in London.I have a mutual
beneficial business suggestion for you.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war,
our client Major Fadi Basem who was with the Iraqi forces and also a
business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with
a value "DEPOSIT" only in my branch.Upon maturity several notice was
sent to him, even during the war four years ago(2003).Again after the
war another notification was sent and still no response came from him.
We later found out that the Major and his family had been killed during
the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
My suggestion to you is
that i will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to
Major Fadi Basem to assist in repatriating the balance of his account
with my Bank to another account own by you, before they get
confiscated or declared unserviceable by the share holders of this bank,
so that they can share his funds as dividends amongst themselves. The
said Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the
account confiscated within the next fourteen days.
Ever since I have
been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for some months now, I seek
your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that
the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.Therefore, on receipt
of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and
modalities of transfer. I have all necessary information and legal
documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is
your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I
guarantee you, this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of the law.
confidentiality is required from you.Besides,I will use my connection
to get some documents to back up the fund so that the fund can not be
question by any authority.
More information await you in my next
response to your email message.
Treat as very urgent.
Dr. Steve Royal.
