DAH SING BANK LTD
DES VOEUX RD.BRANCH,CENTRAL HONG KONG,
I am Mr.Sung Lee, Auditing and Account Credit Officer, Dah Sing Bank Ltd (Hong Kong).
I do insist in your confidence in this transaction. I am making this contact with you, based on reliable information available to me courtesy of internet business index and confirmed by my local chambers of commerce and industry concerning your reputation.Thus I am convinced you would be capable to provide me with a solution to a money transfer transaction of Forty Three Million, Six Hundred Thousand United State Dollars. This is to seek your cooperation as my foreign partner and your assistance to enable me own a property and invest in the stable economy of your country. Accept my apologies if this mail does not suit your personal or business ethics.
Before the U.S and Iraqi war,our client General Hassan Fawzi who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Forty Three Million Six Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him.We later find out that the General and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home. After further investigation, it was also discovered that Gen. Hassan Fawzi 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, Forty Three Million, Six 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 three 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. Hassan Fawzi so that you will be able to receive his funds.
All other information to facilitate the remittance of the funds will be revealed to you in due course. For your assistance, you shall receive 25% of the funds to be transferred and 10% will be set aside for all expenses incurred by both parties. I will appreciate if you can reply me on my personal Email : email@example.com
Kindly delete this e-mail if it does not suit your personal or business ethics, as I will gladly appreciate.
