Dear Friend
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. Andren Smith, currently Head of Corporate affairs with a reputable bank here .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 PETROLEUM CORPORATION, MR. KHALIL AL NASSER made 
a (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at US$17,500,000.00 (Seventeen Million Five 
hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his account officer before I was moved 
to my present position recently. 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 Nasser's 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 . 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 transfer out this money without the help of a foreigner and that is why I am 
contacting you for an assistance. As the Account Officer to late Al Nasser, coupled with my present 
position and status in the bank as Head of Retail Banking Group, 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, .
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 
Please, treat with utmost confidentiality. . I wait your urgent reply through my private email 
Best Regards,
Mr. Andren Smith.
