A Copy of the Email Message:

I am Mr William Leung Wing Cheung (Executive Director and Head of

Personal Banking), before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Gen. Aadel

Akgaal Bastaan 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 notice was sent to him, even during the war

which began in 2005.

Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response

came from him. We later find out that Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan along with

his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast

that hit His Resident. After further investigation it was also discovered

that Gen. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan 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 will

ever come forward to claim it.

What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the

expiration 10 years and six month 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. Aadel Akgaal Bastaan 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.Aadel Akgaal

Bastaan, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide

me with your personal phone number/fax so that the attorney can commence

his job.

After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file 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 to 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, also please send me your personal private cell phone/fax

number. And finally after that I shall provide you with more details of

this operation. I shall be waiting for your response and assurance long

with your recent residential address.


Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

Kind Regards,

William Leung
