From the scam files:

Dear Friend,
Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Cheung Pui director of
operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd,Hong kong. I have an obscured business
suggestion for you.Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client Major Fadi
Basem who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made
anumbered,fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty
million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon
maturity several notice was sent to him,even during the war early last
year.Again after the waranother notification was sent and still no response
came from him. We later find out that the Major and his family had been
killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home.After further
investigation it wasalso discovered that Major Fadi Basem did not declare
any next of kin in his official papers including the paper workof 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.S!
o,Twenty million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still
lyingin 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 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
Major Fadi Basem 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 contacted anattorney that will prepare the
necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Major Fadi
Basem , 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 the 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 your
nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me, 30% for
you . Should you be interested!
please send me your full names and current residential address and I will
prefer you to reach me on the email address below;

Finally, after that i shall provide you with more details of this
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
