Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Patrick Chan (Executive
Director and Chief Financial Officer) of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I
have an obscured business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi
war our client Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail who was with the Iraqi forces
and also businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar
months, with a value of (Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand
United States 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 the General 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 Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail 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 States
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 of 5 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 Gen. Abbas Radhi
Ismail 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 an attorney that will prepare the
necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen.
Abbas Radhi Ismail, 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 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 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 a
nominated bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 70% for me,
30% for you. Should you be interest
ed please send me your the following:
1. Full names
2. Private phone/fax
3. Current residential address
and I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below and
finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this
operation. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
Mr. Patrick Chan.
