The Nigerians have become Iraqis

I found this in my email today. It's always nice to see a new spin on an old scam.

83, Des Voeux Road.,
HK, Hong Kong.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Ming Yang director
of operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured
business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Gen.
Hemood A. Hemood 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 State 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. Hemood A. Hemood 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 State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one willknow of it.

What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at
the expiration of 3 years and 6 months 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. Hemood A. Hemood 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. Hemood
A. Hemood, 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 favour 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.

Should you be interested please send me your full names, private phone/fax and current residential address and finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation.

Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Ming Yang.
