> Dear Friend,
> I am Mr. Lee Kim-Chung. The Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,
> Sai Wan Ho Branch, 171 Shaukiwan Road Hong Kong. An Iraqi named Mr. Hassan
> Hussein, a business man made a one year fixed deposit with the current
> value now US$24,500,000.00 (Twenty Four Million, Five Hundred Thousand
> United States Dollars only) with my bank. Upon maturity in December
> 2004,several notices has been sent out to him without response. We later
> found out that Mr. Hassan Hussein and his family had been killed during
> the war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where his personal
> oil well was. After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr.
> Hassan Hussein 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, US$24,500,000.00 is still lying in my bank and no
> one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me is that according
> to the laws of my country if nobody comes forward to claim these funds my
> government will confiscate it.
> My proposal, I am prepared to present you as the next of kin to late
> Hassan Hussein so the funds can be release to you. We then share 50/50.
