Dear Sir\Madam
I want to cease the oppurtinity to inform you about our company.
it will sound and look strange to you how i got your email address.
People like you do invest in our company and get back huge a
mount in return after utilizing your funds for business purposes.
People bring in their money to our company and we help them to invest
it and
pay thema profit every year.

On october 15, 2002, one of our client Mr. Hatem Kamil
Abdul Fatah who was the deputy governor of Baghdad in
Iraq and also business man made a numbered fixed
deposit for 12 calendar months, with a value of Five Millions
Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my
branch in Cyprus.

At the end of the year when he was to recieve his
profit several notice was sent to him and he did not
reply even after the war late last year another
notification was sent and still no response came from
We later find out that the Governor has been
assasinated last year November 2004 in Baghdad.

The websites below is a verification of the news about
his death:

After further investigation i also discovered that Mr.
Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah did not declare any next of
kin in his official papers including the paper work of
this deposit. And he also confided in me the last time
he was in my office in spain, that no one except me
knew of his deposit with our company.

According to the Cyproit Law, under Cyproit foreign
and defense affairs, at the expiration of
5(five)Years such funds will revert to the ownership
of the Cyproit Government for financing military
operations,such as purchasing of arms and ammunitions
for the military.

In order to avert this negative development,i will
like to seek for your permission as a foreigner
and to stand as the next of kin to Mr.
Hatem Kamil Abdul fatah so that the fruits of this old
man's labor will not be use for financing weapons
which will further enhance the courses of war in the
world in general and most especially in the middle

The money will be paid into your account for us to
share in the ratio of 25% for you and the rest for me
and my co-workers involved .

There is no risk at all, as all the paperwork for this
transaction will be done by my attorney and with my
position as the Director of operations guarantees the
successful execution of this

If you are interested,please reply immediately.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more
details and that will help you understand the
You should 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.

Thanks and regards.
