Dear Friend,

This is a very difficult letter for me to write but many avenue seem to have been closed to me and my family so I hope you can take the time to read my story.

I am the mother of two and my youngest child is a three-year-old boy named Josef, he is beautiful and looks like an angel and has a smile that lights up the world. His laugh never fails to be contagious to all within earshot. He is loved by many people and is adored by his daddy, big sister and myself. We are totally devoted to him.

I am Mrs. Ameena Jawa Mohammed, a lawyer and wife of Mr. Josef Araya Mohammed. My husband Mr. Araya Josef Mohammed was arrested as a result of his views in an interview when asked about the deteriorating security situation caused by the refusal of the Present Shiite-ruled government of President Bashar AL-Assad to allow democracy and respect of human rights, which has further provoked a hardened group of close-knit Syrian fighters believed to be army defectors to turn the tide on President Bashar Assad's security forces.

Before his unlawful arrest, he was head of a Strategic Committee in a major industry in Syria. This brings me to the reason for my letter. I write to request your co-operation on a confidential matter regarding a large amount of money which is in excess of $27 Million United States Dollars. The money is presently secured in a safe deposit box of a private security company here in Damascus Syria. This money belongs to my husband who is presently held in prison by President Bashar AL-Assad.

There is a strong prospect of a civil war if the government does not yield to the wishes of the people for democracy and respect of human rights by stepping down. In- view of this, My husband has instructed me to act quickly by moving the children and the money out of Syria into a safe country. The thought of turning to strangers for help is beyond my experience but would appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness for a positive response to have this funds moved into your custody for safekeeping . My son and his big sister is of such importance to me that I am prompted to contact you with our story.

My husband is willing to greatly reward you with 30% of the funds for your help. I know this is not much in return for your consideration but I hope this story will give you pause regardless.

Please consider this request with my gratitude.

Thank you,
Mrs. Ameena Jawa Mohammed (LL.M.)
