 Greetings to you this day, I am writing you urgently for your
 cooperation in an issue I need you to handle with me. My name is Mr.
 Tony Smitt,
 and I am a banker based in the United Kingdom.
 I was actually helping a friend Mr. Neenus Y. Khoshaba a businessman
 from the USA transfer some of his money from Iraq during the time
 terrorist thugs murdered people unjustly and destroyed their properties
 without any form of pity. Neenus Y. Khoshaba was an unfortunate victim
 of this attack, he was Kidnapped and Murdered on May 22, 2005. More
 information can be found on his death if you view these sites.
 Before his death, he had traveled to England to deposit the sum of
 £18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million British Pounds) with HSBC bank which I
 once worked for. These were proceeds he made secretly from various oil
 deals in Iraq. I had the opportunity of knowing this because I was his
 He also appealed to me to ensure that the funds were safely kept and if
 anything should happen to him I should make his fiancée his next of
 I made frantic effort to contact any relatives of Mr. Neenus Y.
 Khoshaba for the past two months without any success, his fiancée died
 shock after hearing of his death.
 At this point I am contacting you to act as the next of kin/original
 beneficiary to Mr. Neenus Y. Khoshaba's fund in the bank because the
 is planning to hold the funds as "uncleared funds" and thus make it
 bank's money since no one has come forward to claim it.
 I need you to stand as the next of kin so that the funds can be
 processed in your name so that it can be transferred to your account.
 I cannot do this alone neither can make claims to it myself that is why
 I need your assistance.
 If you agree to take up this responsibility, then I will facilitate the
 process in making you the official beneficiary to the funds and you
 will be required to contact the bank to instruct a transfer of the
 to your account. I want to really appeal to you that as soon as these
 funds are transferred to you, you will be trustworthy enough to keep it
 safely and also to keep it confidential.
 If you agree to assist me in this matter, you will definitely be
 entitled to 25% of the total for your participation. Call me up on my
 telephone if you are interested in this deal.
 I await your reply.
 Best Regards
 Charles Hills
