Dear Friend I'm very sorry to have disturbed you with my Proposal, My name is Sarah Scott I must begin by thanking you so much for the time and opportunity given to me to express my personal issues. I am 26yrs of age and presently passing through hell after the death of my mother who passed away on the 28th of August 20011 after a brief illness. I was born and brought up in London by my mother who was married to my father Dr. Nabil Lucas Scott even though I have never known him before but I hear from friends that he is a good man and now residing in Russia. The death of my mother (Late Dr. Hanan Fiddah Scott) has brought about so many set backs in my life and my late mothers relations are not helping matter not to mention the Egyptian Law that is also restricting me from having access to my motherís wealth. My mother before her death deposited USD$7,500,000.00 (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with a private blue chip company in Egypt called The Clearing House authorizing them to release the money to me when she has passed on and I have come of age to handle the money myself. Without wasting much of your time, I need you to stand in for me as my friend and investor to receive this money before my uncles and aunties take all of it away from me leaving me with nothing. I do not intend to stay in this country any longer because I am already fed up with the environment and the way things are going at the moment. I have discussed this with a friend working with ARAB BANK here in Egypt and he has accepted to help me and my lawyer also is willing to assist me get the fund out of Egypt if only I can present someone reliable and trustworthy to stand in on my behalf then he will contact the Private Company in custody of the money for a brief meeting to discuss how to go about the release of the money to you. I need to hear from you as soon as possible if you are going to stand on my behalf and I promise to give back to you 40% of the money for your kind gestures. I will introduce you to my lawyer who will give you the guidelines needed to get the funds transferred into your account in your country. Please reply to my alternative E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you and God bless Sincerely, Sarah Scott.
