Dear Friend, I am Mrs. Nadine N. Sidambaram, an Indian Malaysian married to late politician, Mr. N. Sidambaram. My husband was divisional treasurer of Ipoh Barat unit of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) in Perak state. He was brutally murdered by opposing members of his party for his straight forwardness and accountability though the government claimed that it was a robbery attack. I was lucky to stand this gruesome murder on the night of 13th January 2009. My life has not being the same since the demise of my lovely husband. I was diagnosed with cancer of breast shortly after this accident. My health has so deteriorated that the doctors say I have few months on earth. Our only son died in 2007 after a car crash. So,I am in a lonely world of my home waiting for death to come. I write you to seek your assistance in the security of US$8.2million deposited by my late husband with a security company in MALAYSIA before he was killed. I am the only one with direct access and information of this deposit. I decided to seek help knowing that my days are numbered having received a call from the security company that they will turn the deposit to its treasury if I fail to present a representative of my family for the claim. I seek your assistance to be made the administrator to this inheritance. I intend to introduce you to our family attorney whom I deem very competent to guide you through this claim process. Please get back to me for more information on this inheritance. I was lead by the Almighty to send this email to you after serious thought of all emails I saw. Please treat this seriously and confidential. I have all documents of deposit of this fund to prove this legitimate to you. Please follow this link for further information on the gruesome killing of my husband: http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/uncategorized/malaysian-indian-politician-dies-fighting-robbers_100141594.html I hope to hear from you soonest before I go. Thank you. Nadine Sidambaram email@example.com
