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. Khalifa Al Abuhail, currently Head of 
Coporate affairs 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 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. Khalil Al Nasser 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 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 Khalil 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, beside U. A. E 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 at 
this my confidential email id at (

Khalifa Abuhail.
