Attention:Read carefully I am Mr. Abdul Hameed Mahmood Branch Manager National Bank of Dubai Abu Dhabi branch. I have a profitable business proposition for you and I. A British Oil consultant and contractor with the Kruger Gold Company,Mr. Raymond Beck made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$12,000,000.00 (Twelve Million United State Dollars 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 Kruger Gold Company that Mr. Raymond Beck died in a plane crash along with his wife in Egypt Air Flight 990, 1999 air crash. Since we got this information about his death and on further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Raymond Beck did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$12,000,000.00 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 United Arab Emirates, at the expiration of 7 (seven) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the (U.A.E) Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Raymond Beck so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials and I am contacting you by faith believing that you will not betray me when you see this money into your account as we do not meet before. 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. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. I like to fully explain to you the reason why I contacted you in this business. And it is all about what I am currently going through in life. The main reason why I decided to do this transaction is because I was shouldered with a burden by the management of my bank as regards loans I authorized in my branch for some Customers. The customers have over the years refused to pay back or service their loans. Based on that, management of my bank decided to suspend all my benefits and salary Entitlements until I get these customers to return the money they borrowed. I have served for some good years as a branch manager in my Current bank, but have nothing to show for it in terms of savings. Because of the enormous hardship I and my family are facing, I had to spend all the little savings I have to take care of them. The last asset I have which I cherish very much is my car which I have to sale to support in this business. In other words, if you are willing to work with me let me know immediately so that I shall t provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction. And also note that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country to avoid suspicions to my personality here in my country.
