I don’t mean to gloat, but it seems I’ve been invited to stand as General Ibrahim Moussa’s next of kin, and I’ll receive $20 million. At first I thought maybe it was spam, but since they’ve addressed me as “Intending Partner,” I can only conclude this has to do with my viral video fame.
Dear Intending Partner,
Let me start by introducing myself, I am Mr. Patrick K. W. Chan, Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of the operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have a secured business proposal for you;
Before the U.S and Iraqi war, our client General Ibrahim Moussa who was with the Iraqi forces and also a business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Twenty Million, Five Hundred United States Dollars ($20,500,000.00) in my branch. Upon maturity, several notice was sent to him, even during the war early last year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that General Ibrahim Moussa and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
After further investigation it was also discovered that General Ibrahim Moussa 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 Million, Five Hundred United States Dollars ($20,500,000.00) 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 8 years, the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody comes forward 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. Ibrahim Moussa so that you will be able to receive his funds.
WHAT IS TO BE DONE:
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen. Ibrahim Moussa, 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 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 the matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all necessary legal 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 60% for me, 40% for you. Should you be interested, please send me the following informations below:
1. Full Names
2. Current Residential Address
3. Country of Origin
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 transaction. Your earliest
response to this letter will be highly appreciated.
Mr. Patrick Chan.
