I decided to mail you thru the chat forum on small
business and please do not feel bad about this message
more especially as i am from Iraq. My names are Hayat
Al-Shibbeth Ashraf widow of Abdul Rahman Ashraf,
former Bank Manager of Baghdad National Bank. My
Husband and our twin sons was killed in the U.S. led
military campaign during this crises period. All we
ever worked and lived for was destroyed. I am left
alone now with my 11 years old little girl.

Before the invasion, he disclosed to me that he had
funds totalling Twenty Four Million United States
Dollars securely lodged in a security company in
Europe. I have with me the Deposit Certificate which
states that the consignments contains PRICESLESS
FAMILY VALUABLES, and that an agreement was reached
between them for a possible change of beneficiary's
status. He had made this revelation to me when the
American led forces intensified their air raid on our
country before he was killed.

I ask you in the name of Allah the merciful, to help
salvage the situation for me and my little girl and
help us claim at this fund. I am willing to give you
the information you may need to clear the fund. I am
also willing to give to you an agreed percentage from
the total fund. The rest will be more than enough for
me and my daughter. I chose to contact you in strict
confidence and out of inspiration, believing that you
will not betray me when you clear the consignment.

All I require from you is honesty and transparency.
Presently, I believe am under surveillance by the
American Security here and can only reach you via
email. However, your nationality does not matter in
this business. Please show transparency. I will expect
your Urgent response. May Allah be with you.
