Respected Sir/Ma, 

I honestly 
apologize and hope I do not cause you much embarrassment by contacting 
you through this means for a transaction of this magnitude, I got your 
email address on the internet. and it is imperative for me to know your 
opinion. I am Alkawasmi Bashar Adnan Credit Officer of the Saudi 
British Bank (SABB) I have an urgent and very confidential business 
propsition for you. 

Five (5) years ago an British Oil 
consultant/contractor with the Saudi Petroleum and Chemical corporation 
Mr. Michael Felton made a numbered time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve 
calendar months, valued at US$15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million Dollars 
only) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his 
forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder 
and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Saudi 
Petroleum and Chemical Corporation that Mr. Michael Felton died from 
the terrorist attack in Great Britain (UK) 

On further investigation, 
I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to 
trace his next of kin were fruitless.I therefore made further 
investigation and discovered that Mr. Michael Felton did not declare 
any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank 
Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$15,000,000.00 (Fifteen 
Million Dollars only) is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is 
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No 
one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of  Saudi 
Arabia at the expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the 
ownership of the Saudi Arabia Government if nobody applies to claim the 

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a 
foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Michael Felton so that 
the fruits of this man's labor will not get into the hands of some 
corrupt government officials.This is simple, I will like you to provide 
immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will 
prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in 
place as the next of kin. 

We shall employ the services of an Attorney 
for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary 
documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the 
transfer. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in 
the ratio of 50% for me and 40% for you and 10% for Expenses Incurred 
in the course of the transaction. 

There is no risk at all as all the 
paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and with my 
position as the credit officer guarantees the successful execution of 
this transaction.Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more 
details and relevant documents that will help you understand the 

Please send me your confidential telephone and fax 
numbers for easy communication. You should observe utmost 
confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most 
profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to 
invest my share in your country. 

Awaiting your urgent reply.
