As-Salaam Alaikum


I Am Mr.Abdullah Hamza From Bank of <*xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Africa. Firstly, accept my apologies, am the personal accountant to Dr. Ravindra F. Shah who died with his wife Mrs. Manjula Parikh-Shah in a plane crash on 1st Oct. 2003 on their way to Boston . i came across ($15.000,000USD) in his balance with our Bank (BOA) I want to first transfer $5,000.000( Five million USD) from this money into a safe account abroad, after which we will transfer the remaining (10M) but I don't know any foreigner.


However I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in US Dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr.Ravindra F. Shah is a foreigner too, now i want you to provide an account where this money will be transfer into for both of us, please kindly contact me immediately then I can clarify you more in details of this transaction. I look forward to your earliest reply .Allah bless you.




Mr.Abdullah Hamza.
