Dear Sir, My name is Barrister Neil F. Jones. I am the lawyer to Ali Hassan al-Majid,the cousin and trusted adviser of former president Saddam Hussein of Iraq,who with my assistance, in 2003 before the beginning of the American led coalition war in Iraq deposited the sum of $50 Million United States dollars in a private Security company in London United Kingdom. However the security company is not aware of the content of the deposit as this was brought in under diplomatic cover and deposited as family valuables. I am the only person who is aware of the content of the consignment, and the documents of the deposit is with me, Now that Ali Hassan is captured in Iraq and is standing trial for all the atrocities they committed during their rule in Iraq, I am, looking for a reliable foreign partner who will collaborate with me to claim the consignment from the security company. As the attorney that arranged the deposit, I have always maintained a good relationship with the security company and can easily work out the change of ownership of this consignment to your name, so that we will claim the consignment and share the funds. If you are interested please indicate interest immediately so that we can discuss, I have good contact of a banker who will assist in arranging bank accounts here in the United Kingdom for you and deposit the funds for transfer to any county out side United Kingdom. As soon as the consignment is taken out of the scurity company, I will be prepared to give you 35% while I take 65% when completed. NOTE: that i need your private phone and fax numbers for our easy comunication. Awaiting your urgent response. Sincerely, Barrister Neil F.
