Greetings from Dubai,

This letter must come to you as a surprise, but I believe it is only aday that people meet and 
become great friends and business partners.

Iam Mr.Adnan Harmoudi, currently Head of Coporate affairs with a reputable bank here in U. A. E. 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 Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the CHEVRON PETROLEUM 
CORPORATION, Mr.Jack Farrer Powell made a (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at 
US$12,000,000.00 (Twelve Million United State Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his 
accountofficer before I was moved to my present position recently.

Upon maturity in 2003,as his account officer and as well the bank manger, it is my duty to notify 
him on the maturity date so I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but the letter 
was returned undelivered. After sometime, I tried sending back the letter,but it was again returned 
and finally I discovered from his contract employers,
Chevron Petroleum Corporation that Mr.jack farrer powell died as a result of torture in the hand of 
Saddam Hussein (former Iraqi President) duringone of his trips to his country Iraq, as he was 
accused of leaking information to the Americans.

On further investigation, I discovered that Mr.Jack Farrer Powell family wife and two sons died 
during the Gulf War in Iraq and was the reason why he 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.

This sum of US$12,000,000.00 have been floating and placed under dormant/unserviceable account by 
my bank management since no one have heard from the owner since 2003.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 incheckmating terrorism aid in the U.A. E. By end of this year, the government will pass a 
new financialcontrol law which will give the government authority to interrogate account owners of 
above $5,000,000.00 to explain the source of the funds,making sure it is not for terrorism support.

If I do not move this moneyout of the country immediately, by 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 jack farrer powell , 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 U. A. E 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 Al Nasser when the deposit was made for your 
perusal. I wait your urgent response at my confidential email id at
Mr.Adnan Harmoudi.
