Dear Friend, My name is Donald Height, I am a HSBC Bank External Auditor; I was invited by the United Nation Financial Committee to Audit Helima Security Storage Company in Bagdad (IRAQ). Prior to my Investigation I discovered that in 2004 two U.S soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division deposited a box Seized from an unknown Top Saddam Hussein’s aide with the company during the war. Both soldiers died on active Service, since then no one has come forward to claim this Box. This Box contains USD$13.8 million USD (Thirteen Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars). I have used my Position to move this Box to a HSBC Affiliate bank in Africa (Nigeria), to be delivered to United Arab Emirate (Dubai), any designation of your choice or fund transferred into any nominated bank account as we may agree; I did not let them know the content of the box. I deposited it as a family treasure kept for security reasons. As a staff I cannot lay Claim to this Box (Money), but I can instruct that the box be delivered or transferred to you by Diplomatic means as the original depositor. I got your Contact from your Local Directory while searching for a reliable, trustworthy and God fearing fellow to Assist and Partner with me to claim this Box. This will not involve any risk; as a staff of this Bank I will facilitate the easy release and hitch-free claim of this Box (Fund) While replying, kindly include the following Information’s: Full Name: Mobile Cell phone: Age: Nationality: Address: Occupation: I will give you more details and what next step to take, I am ready to go 50/50 Sharing ratio with you on the receipt of your consent. Anxiously anticipating your prompt response. Yours sincerely, Donald Height
