Your Dear Friend From uk. london, 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. paschal anderson, currently Head of Corporate affairs with a reputable bank here in london. 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 CHIEF COMMANDER OFFICER OF IRAQI FORCE MR SADDAM HUSSAIN , made a (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at (50,500, 000.00.POUNDS )FIFTY Million Five hundred Thousand POUNDS 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, . On further investigation, I discovered that Mr. SADDAM HUSSAIN 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. EVERY THING WAS MADE ON HIS NAMES This sum of (50,500,000.00 POUNDS )have been floating and placed under dormant/ unserviceable account by my bank management since SADDAM DEATH. 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 LONDON, UK. Before end of this year, the LONDON Government will pass a new financial control law which will give the government authority to interrogate account owners of above 5,000, 000.00 POUNDS. 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, before the 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 SADDAM, 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 LONDON 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 SADDAM HUSSAIN when the deposit was made for your perusal. I wait your urgent reply through my private email address: OR CONTACT ME ON 00442071830312 Best regards, paschal anderson
