Dearest,I am writing you this letter with caurage and fear within me. I am Mona Khalil, I am of Algerian nationality and I live in Iraq. I am a young woman of 22 yrs old.
I have lived in this country for a very long time, I was working with Madam Aquila Al-Hashimi. I was charged with the runing of her residence in the west of Baghdad and i am responsible also for all her financial transactions. I was just a sort of errand person to her and i was aware of all her transactions and dealings.
Doctor Akila Hashimi was an adviser to the ex-president of Iraq Sadam Hussien on petroleum and Agriculture.
She was also one of the pricipal political activitist in the security council of the regime of Sadam Hussien, She was supposed to be nominated as the ambassador of Iraq to the United nations when she was attacked by unknowned gun men in her residence. She received gunshots from the attack which led to her death five days after in the hospital.
When she was about giving up the ghost, she informed me of the sum of $14.000.000 which she deposited with a bank somewhere in West Africa, precisely Cote D' Ivoire for onward transfer to the nominated bank account of her foreign associate.
This money she intended for a steel project in Sweden, and the document that proves this deposit was in her wardrope in the room, Then she advised me to deliver this document to her relations to claim this money since she had no child of her own as she was dying on the 23 december 2004. When i arrived the house i noticed that the deposit slip of this fund does not contain any name of someone as the beneficiary.
It was indicated that the money be transferred to her foreign associate from the attestation of deposit and i felt that it is by the grace of Allah that i got an opprtunity to leave Iraq and i decided to keep this document within me.
I therefore contacted the bank firstly to verify the existence of this money and they confirmed this to me but was deposited for onward transfer only to the nominated bank account of the foreign associate.
As a result of this event, the family of my late boss held me on suveillance to know where i have directed this money. And since i cannot retrieve this fund myself and coupled with the instent spies on me, I am soliciting your asistance to contact this bank and apply for the transfer of this money to your nominated bank account.
I have the deposit Slip and the attestation of deposit and i am ready to send to you this document in line with the contact of the bank so that you might contact them and apply for the transfer of this money to your account.
You will apply as the foreign associate to my late boss and when you have received this money in your account, you will then arrange for my arrival into your country to meet with you and also have my part of this money to establish another life for myself.
You should understand that this transaction should be kept within us as secret, because if the family of my late boss happens to know this, they will definately kill me. My telephone and my movements are been monitored so i decided to keep off from this meduim of contacts now. They always keep someone beside to always spy me, where i am going and what i am doing in the pretext that he is my gaurd.
Therefore this transaction needs ultimate carefulnees and safety on my side. You have no problem with the bank, all you need is to contact the bank and present these documents to back up your claims.
For your commision, i have set aside, 40% of the total sum as your comision and 60% will be for me. Should this deal intrest you please do write me quickly to enable me give you the contact of the bank and the documents so that you will write them.
Thanks and may the Almighty and Merciful Allah guide you. Sincerely Yours Mona Khalil _________________________________________________________________Windows Live Messenger sur i-mode™ : dialoguez avec vos amis depuis votre mobile comme sur PC ! http://mobile.live.fr/messenger/bouygues/
