Greetings from Dubai,

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I
believe it is only a day that people meet and become
great friends and business partners.  I am Mr. Hasan
Abdul, a bank Manager with a reputable bank here in U.
A. E.  I write you this proposal in good faith,
believing that I can trust you with the information I
am about to reveal to you.

I have an urgent and very confidential business
proposition for you. On November 6, 2000, an Iraqi
Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the CHEVRON
(Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at
US$17,500,000.00 (Seventeen Million Five hundred
Thousand Dollars only) in my bank branch and I happen
to be his account officer. Upon maturity in 2003, as
his account officer and as well the bank manger, it is
my duty to notify him on the maturity date so I sent a
routine notification to his forwarding address but the
letter was returned undelivered.

After sometime, I tried sending back the letter, but
it was again returned and finally I discovered from
his contract employers, Chevron Petroleum Corporation
that Mr. Khalil Al Nasser died as a result of torture
in the hand of Saddam Hussein (former Iraqi President)
during one of his trips to his country Iraq, as he was
accused of leaking information to the Americans. On
further investigation, I discovered that Mr. Al
Nasserís family wife and two sons died during the Gulf
War in Iraq and was the reason why he did not declare
any next of kin or relation in all his official
documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my
Bank and did not leave any WILL.  This sum of
US$17,500,000.00 have been floating and placed under
dormant/unserviceable account by my bank management
since no one have heard from the owner since 2003.  I
wish to let you know that all the investigation I have
made so far, my bank management is not aware of it, I
am the only one that have the information.

With the recent change of government in my country and
with their efforts to support the United Nations in
checkmating terrorism aid in the U. A. E.  By end of
this year, the government will pass a new financial
control law which will give the government authority
to interrogate account owners of above $5,000,000.00
to explain the source of the funds, making sure it is
not for terrorism support.  If I do not move this
money out of the country immediately, by end of the
year the government will definitely confiscate the
money, because my bank cannot provide the account
owner to explain the source of the money.

I cannot directly take out this money without the help
of a foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for
an assistance.  As the Manager of my bank branch, I
have the power to influence the release of the funds
to any foreigner that comes up as the next of kin to
the account, with the correct information concerning
the account, which I shall give you.  All documents to
enable you claim this fund will be carefully worked
out and there is practically no risk involved, the
transaction will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
law, beside my country is porous and anything goes.

If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how
you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that
both parties will be satisfied.  If you are
interested, contact me as soon as you receive this
message  so we can go over the details.  Thanking you
in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with
utmost confidentiality.  I shall send you copy of the
deposit certificate issued to Al Nasser when the
deposit was made for your perusal.   I wait your
urgent response.


Mr. Hasan Abdul.
