I am Dr Mba Victor, I work with Fidelity Bank of Nigeria plc.
I am writing you with total humility and proposing this business which will surely be of great benefit to the two of us.
I discovered an abandoned account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Late Mr. Bassam Qubba who until his death was the Foreign Ministry Director in Iraq.
Unidentified gunmen fired on his car in Al-Azimiya district and killed him in an attack in the capital, Baghdad as he was on his way to work.
You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3800513.stm
