After going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of this account is Late Mr. Arthur Coleman, a foreigner And he is the manager of Petro-Technical Support Services, a chemical engineer by profession and he died since 1990. No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is (USD 36 million dollars). I want to transfer this money into a safe foreigners account abroad but I don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local bank here, but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in US dollars and the former owner of the account is Late Mr. Arthur Coleman is a foreigner too.
