I am Mr. Abdul Hameed Mahmood Branch Manager National Bank of Dubai, I have =
urgent and very confidential business proposal for you.

An American Oil consultant, military equipment merchant and a contractor with =
the Kruger Gold Company, Mr. Robert Fitzpatrick made a numbered time (Fixed) =
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at (US$8.1 million) Eight million, =
and one hundred thousand United States dollars in my branch. 

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address at 68, =
Southold, N.Y U.S.A but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and =
finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Kruger Gold Company =
that Mr. Robert Fitzpatrick died in a plane crash along with his wife in a =
plain crash along with his wife in Egypt Air Flight 990, 1999 air crash.

(For more information about this crash and person you can contact this =

since we got this information about his death and on further investigation, I =
found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his =
next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and =
discovered that Mr. Robert Fitzpatrick did not declare any kin or relations =
in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my =
This sum of US$8.1 million is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is =
being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will =
ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of United Arab Emirates, at =
the expiration of 7 (seven) years, the money will revert to the ownership of =
the (U.A.E) Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as =
the next of kin to that Mr. Robert Fitzpatrick so that the fruits of this old =
man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.

This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and =
address and 
 a bank account from any part of the world exclude u.a.e so that I can =
facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the next of kin. 

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% =
for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this =
transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch =
Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.

If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address =

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant =
documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send me your =
confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. Please observe =
utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most =
profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest =
my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my confidential email address: =
