National Bank of Sharjah, Sharjah Branch, United Arab Emirates. Dear Friend, I am contacting you in anticipation for a cordial business relationship.I am Sheikh Ahmed Huru a credit Control Officer with the National Bank of Sharjah UAE. I have a consealed business suggestion for you that will be of our benefit .Before the U.S / Iraqi war, one of our customers Col.Saleem Abdullah who was with the Iraqi forces and also a business man deposited sum of (US$15,500, 000.00) only in our branch bank.Several notice was sent to him for his account advise, even during the war early last year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later found out that the Col.Saleem Abdullah and his family had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.After further investigation it was also discovered that Col,Saleem Abdullah did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. As his account manager,he confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank.So, (US$15,500,000.00) only is still lying in our bank branch and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of this country at the expiration of Ten years, the funds will be reverted to the ownership of the United Arab Emirates Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Col.Saleem Abdullah so that you will be able to receive his funds on our behalf. My aim of contacting you is to seek for your assistance to help me receive this fund in your bank account.I have worked out modalities which I am sure will benefit you and I. I will appreciate it very much if you will be willing to work with me.Please get back to me as soon as you receive this mail so that I can reveal the modalities to you and start providing you with the information that will make a headway . Efirstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Thank you in advance and may God bless you. Yours sincerely Sheikh Ahmed Huru.
