Dear Beneficiary, I wish to introduce myself to you; I am Mr. John Al Islam, Born in United States of America, a staffer of the National Bank of Abu Dhabi located in the United Arab Emirates. I am the bank's Financial Auditor and In-charge of International Affairs as concerned with the NBAD. During the financial auditing as at December 2009 done by me on all the accounts of the NBAD, I came across an Online Account, registered in your name as the NEXT OF KIN, huge amount of money (5.5 Million USD). And from the database records, this account has been Dormant, and I track the owner of this account and found out that he died with his family on plane crash and since I am the only person privy to the bank's database, I decided to study the account for a while, and till date know one has applied for the release of the funds. This gave me some concern because according to laws guiding the banks in the U.A.E all funds dormant for more than one year without any mere agreement with the bank (i.e.) Have fixed deposit accounts or perhaps a Portfolio account, are been confiscated and the funds been sent to the U.A.E government for Amnesty purposes and I needed to let you know. Irrespective of the fact that the account happened to be in your name, I will like you to give me some information's as regards the funds in question, and I can help you find an easy way to move out your funds to another NBAD new account which you are going to open. Meanwhile, I can only give you few details of the account as seen below; National Bank of Abu Dhabi Account No: 0014674327860 Swift code: NBADAEAASHA Although the fund has accrued some interest over the period of deposit, thus, further directives will be given to you as we proceed. Yours Faithfully, Mr. John Al Islam. National Bank of Abu Dhabi Direct Telephone: 00971 555091057
