Dear Sir\Madam FROM THE DESK OF DR WILLIANMS MILTOS 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 him. 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: http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/1/hi/world/middle_east/3970619.stm http://www.uslaboragainstwar.org/article.php?id=6979 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 east. 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 transaction. 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 transaction. 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. Dr William Miltos
