Good Day,

It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive because you  do not know me but I 
have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to share with you. Let me start by 
introducing myself. I am Mr. larry johansen operations manager norges bank of norway. I have an 
obscure business suggestion for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Manal Saad-Allah Matti who was with the Iraqi forces and 
also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months, with a value of Eleven 
million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars (US$11,500,000.00) only in my branch. Upon 
maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war early last year. Again after the war 
another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that Manal 
Saad-Allah Matti and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home at 
Mukaradeeb where his personal oil well was.

After further investigation it was also discovered that Manal Saad-Allah Matti did not declare any 
next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also 
confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my 
bank. So, Eleven million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars  is still lying in my bank and 
no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my 
country at the expiration six{6}
years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Norwagian 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 Manal Saad-Allah Matti so that you will be able to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I 
have an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin 
to Manal Saad-Allah Matti, all that is required from you is to provide me with your Full Names and 
Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the 
attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter 
of probate in your favor for
The movement of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. We are going adopt a 
legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents in your favour.There is 
a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. There is no risk involved at all 
in the matter, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is for you refusing to work 
with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has 
blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life.

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds 
have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me, 25% 
for you and 5% set aside for any incidental expenses. I send you this mail not without a measure of 
fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and 
that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Please observe this instruction 
religiously. Should you be interested please send me the details as below;

1. Full name
2. Private phone number
3. Current residential address
4. Current Business Address
And I will prefer you reach me on my private email address: and 
finally after that I shall furnish you with more informationís about this operation. Your earliest 
response to this letter will be appreciated.
