Good day, 

Your identity and contact was made known to me in my desperate quest to successfully locate the next of kin to an account file forwarded to my desk for liquidation. I am Barrister Ali Mohammed Ibrahim; I work with the legal Inheritance department of the Emirates International Law Firm Abu Dhabi UAE. It is my job to see that any unclaimed account resulting from demise of account holder is certified and confirmed (UNCLAIMED) before final liquidation instruction is passed on any such account file.

With the above explanation of my responsibility/obligation in carrying out my duty, I was necessitated on making contact with you because an account file due for liquidation and currently valued at US$ 18.5 Million (Eighteen million, Five hundred Thousand US Dollars) was forwarded to my office for final search of next of kin to the deceased account holder, this account was last operated in 2003.

I have tried to locate the next of kin to this account but to no avail. I have tried the embassies, still no results. In my quest to locate such person, i came across your identity. Coincidentally you bear the same surname as the holder of the account in question and that is the major reason for my contact with you. I have been mandated to provide next of kin to this account or have the account confiscated within sixty official working days from the 9th of MAY, 2008.

Therefore I seize this opportunity to make a confidential transaction proposal to you as follows: -

1. We both work together on this file; I will use my official capacity to front you as the next of kin to this account file. All files relating to this account will be amended to suit our plight.

2. I will be your lawyer here in UAE, who will be standing in on your behalf while the claim suit is going on. I will be directing the affairs of the claim suit from behind the scene.

3. Once claim of account approval by virtue of next of kin is passed in favor of us.[you] We shall have the proceeds of the account shared/disbursed as follows:-

{i} 80% to be shared equally (40:40) between both parties (you and me)

{ii} 20% will be set aside for expenses incurred in the course of execution of the transaction afterwards. We might have to indulge in a bit of lobbying to scale through a few bureaucratic bottleneck procedures and to gain claim and transfer approval quickly.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the Law. Upon your critical scrutiny of the above mentioned proposal and 3 point operational module.

I expect to hear from you as soon as possible!


Barrister Ali Mohammed Ibrahim Esq.
