information as a result of my personal search for a honest person whom i
will work with,hence I decided to seek your views if you will work
with me, due to the sensitivity of this transaction and my position as a lawyer.

I am Paul Harden from UK, representing Mr. Martin Greenberg, a
foreign, Engineer by profession, who died since 1999, in an Egypt
Air crash, on the 31st October along with other passengers on board.
Before his death, he has a huge sum of (US$25.5) which no other
person knew about, he intended to invest the funds in Southern part of Africa.

This fund has NO other beneficiary and I have the original documents

involved is (US$25.5M) Twenty Five Millions five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars.

The fund is right now under the custody of a Security Company, which
I will not like to disclose at the moment until I confirm your
willingness to assist me in this project.

Few days ago, the Security Company sent me a letter, since I was
