Barrister Haruna Mohammed Esq. EQUITY CHAMBERS Managing Partner & Solicitor 8th Floor, 153-155 Regent Street London W1B 4JE. Tel/fax: +44-203-3707993 I am Barrister Haruna Mohammed, Briefly I am writing to seek for your assistance to help accomodate the sum of ($12,000 000) in your private or company's bank account. My Arab late client Engr Abdul Fawaz Hermann made a short time deposit sum of Twelve million u.s dollars ($12,000 000) with a Bank here in London, which he had wanted to transfer to his bank account at HSBC Hong-kong before he was killed by suspected terrorist gunmen. Engr. Abdul Fawaz Hermann until his death was a member of the Helicopter Society, Paris Club and the Institute of Aeronautic Engineers. He had a very good heart and was a philanthropist. His great generousity earned him numerous awards during his life time from the United Nation Organization (UNO) and United Nation International Children Education Funding (UNICEF). This sum of ($12,000 000) Twelve million u.s dollars has been floating un-claimed since 2 years in the bank here in London Metropolis. And all my extensive efforts to get relatives of my late client yielded no good result. Engr. Abdul Fawaz Hermann did not declare any next of kin or relation in his official documents of this fund deposit who will inherit this money. Therefore I seek your assistance to have you stand as his business associate so that the Bank will release and transfer this money to you as Engr. Abdul Fawaz Hermann business partners in Asia. The document for proof of this deposit will be forwarded to you upon your response. And we shall share this money 45% for you, 45% for me. while the remaining 10% will be given to charity organizations in your country. I am waiting for your urgent response for us to commence action. Sincerely yours, Barrister Haruna Mohammed Tel/fax: +44-203-3707993
