I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and
profitable business proposal, I Got your e-mail address in
Internet while browsing after I decided to contact you and
ask for your assistance in this urgent matter, requiring
trust and confidentiality, My name is Mr Paul matins.
I am the humble Manager of National Bank of Dubai, Al Mizhar
Branch. I feel positive that might have received this sort
of email before, probably sent to you by some unscrupulous
elements trying hard to impersonate our bank officials here
in the United Arab Emirates.
 Well, let me assure you of the originality of the current
one you are reading. During a recent call over of our branch
financial books by our Internal Auditors and my goodself, I
discovered a Fixed Deposit account that was dormant for up
to 4 years. The tenured sum in the account is a total of
Nine Million, Five Hundred and Thirty Eight Thousand United
States Dollars ($9,538,000, 00).
 The actual principal sum is Nine Million Five Hundred
Dollars ($9,500,000), while accrued interest over the years
amount to Thirty Eight Thousand Dollars ($38,000.00). The
above mentioned Time Deposit Account belongs to one Mr. Neal
Walker, a customer now deceased. We discovered that a plane
crash occurred way back On October 31, 1999. Involving an
Egyptian Boeing 767 Flight 990 in the United States.
 His family including Wife and Daughter were unfortunately
on board the aircraft too. you can confirm it yourself via
the website below:
Under normal banking regulations obtainable throughout the
world, a customer at the initial stage of completing account
opening ocumentation, is required to provide the name(s) of
his /her next of kin. This is the norm, because of
unforeseen events such as permanent physical disability, or
even death. In this case, the late Mr.
 Neal Walker’s next of kin was first, his daughter, and
then his wife. In his Fixed Deposit Account data, I noticed
again, that he prefers online banking correspondence, rather
than being physically present in the branch. Under normal
circumstance, customers send in their instruction on or
before the maturity period of investments of this nature,
but in cases whereby there is a delay in receiving such
instructions, the bank uses its discretion to roll over such
investment pending the receipt of an instruction stating
otherwise from the customer. In this case therefore, when
Mr. Neal’s “rollover or liquidate my investment
instruction” was not received by officials in our
operations department, the investment was continuously
rolled over up to the time I noticed its peculiarity.
There is a law in the United Arab Emirates that stipulates
remitting any amount that stands as unclaimed after five
years from the date of demise of a customer, in cases where
provision has not been made for a next of kin by the account
holder. Such funds are termed as unclaimed funds by the bank
to the emirates treasury account.
 In this case, it is not that there isn’t any next kin,
but because they are both deceased. The emirates you must
understand has a peculiar financial system, whereby there is
freedom in the transfer of funds, tax exemption, and a very
liberal system at the way funds are brought into and moved
out of the country without attracting undue attention from
Government regulatory agencies.
 These it is believed can go a long way at attracting
foreign capital into the country. I have taken my time to
explain to you the intricacies associated with this
transaction, so that you may be able to compare notes with
what you might have previously received from impersonators.
 And above all, to give you the needed feeling of mutual
confidence needed to for us to conclude this transaction,
that I believe will help both of us achieve financial
buoyancy in a very short while. This is what I am proposing:
(1) In order for the bank not to transfer the said sum of
Nine Million, Five Hundred and Thirty Eight Thousand Dollars
($9,538,000.00) as unclaimed funds to the emirates treasury
account, the above stated funds most be claimed immediately
by somebody standing in as late Mr. Neal Walker’s partner.
(2) The stated sum can only be transferred to a walker’s
partner. Full name, address and other details must also be
furnished to the bank for ease in processing necessary
This details you will provide for me to commence anchor the
transaction. (3) The Bank’s Attorney/Legal Secretary shall
prepare all necessary documents relating to the transfer of
ownership. A sworn affidavit empowering you as the next of
kin to the deceased and a probate administration document
shall be served the bank after being duely notarized.
 This will serve as a legal document backing this claim. (5)
You will be required to provide an account and its details
to our bank for the said funds to be transferred, as you
shall then be regarded as the next of kin to the deceased.
This information I will need you to urgently provide. (6)
Note: that the operations staff charged with effecting the
transfer are all my subordinates in the branch, while the
responsibility of authorizing transactions of this nature
falls on my shoulder as the branch manager. I am a
meticulous, fair and rational individual whenit comes to the
area of sharing proceeds.
Therefore I am willing to offer you 40% of the total sum to
be transferred. The remaining 60% shall be utilized
in-house. I believe this is equitable enough. Finally, I can
assure you that the above proposed transaction is fool
proof, considering the fact that I am the branch manager who
shall authorize the transfer, and again, since we shall
ensure that we fulfill all the bank’s requirements
relating to transactions of this manner.
Therefore I can guarantee you that you shall not be liable
to exposure in anyway imaginable. I shall need to be able
trust you, as much as you will need to do the same about me.
Therefore, I shall advice you to kindly reply my email,
depicting acceptance in good faith of my proposal. Upon
receipt of your reply, I shall furnish you with relevant
documents that will help guide and ensure your optimum
understanding of the above stated transaction.
 Additionally, I shall require you to forward to me your
telephone and fax numbers for ease of communication. I am
sure that I need not state that the foregoing requires
utmost confidentiality. Thank you. Awaiting your reply via
my personal email. Sincerely, AN OFFER OF GOODWILL.
