With great pleasure I am writing this proposal on behalf of my partners.I got your information 
through my personal search on the internet. Hence I have decided to seek your cooperation,due to 
the sensitivity of this transaction and my commitment as a financial agent.I am Mr.Gerald Wharfe 
Bills and Exchange under foreign remittance department of Basel Financial Trust Bank channel 
Islands.There is an account opened in this Bank in 1990 and since 2000 nobody has operated on this 
account again.  

After going through some old files in the records,I Discovered that if I do not remit this money 
out urgently it would be  forfeited for nothing.The owner of this account is DR. A.Hebru ( Nasim  
Saleh), a foreigner, Geologistby profession and he died since 1999. In an air crash along with his 
wife on 31st  October  1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other passengers on board.No other 
person know about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and 
my investigation proved To me as well that his company does not know anything about his account and 
the amount involved is  (US$50)FIFTY Million Dollars.  

I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local Bank here, 
but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in US Dollars and the former 
owner of the account is DR. Abu Hebru is a foreigner too. Our constraint is to be able to source an 
honest and trustworthy individual,to whom we can remit these funds and act as trustee pending our 
visit,since our period of disengagement from our service is near. 

I am presently affected by the financisl service code of conduct laws that prohibits officials from 
operating private foreign accounts.You will be given 20% of the  total sum,while 70% will be for  
me and 10% for taxes and other miscellaneous  expenses.This transaction is 100% risk free provided 
you treat it with utmostsecrecy and confidentiality. Furthermore, your area of specialization is 
not a hindrance to the successful execution of this via my personal e-mail address At

Thank you and God Bless,
My sincere Regards
Gerald Whitley
