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. Ali Ahmed, 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. Morris Thompson 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.Morris Thompson 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. Morris Thompson 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 foreignerand 
that is why I am contacting you for an assistance.

As the Account Officer to late Morris Thompson , coupled with my present position and status in the 
bank as Head of Retail Banking Groug , 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 Allah bless you. Please,treat with utmost confidentiality. I shall 
send you copy of the deposit certificate issued to you when the deposit was made for your perusal. 
I wait your urgent response. My private email address 
Mr. Ali Ahmed.
