Letter From Edward Todd
Office of the Manager, 
Natwest Bank London. 


Dear Friend, 

I am Dr. Edward Todd the Manager of Natwest Bank Plc 
London. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for 
you. On April 10, 2000, an Iraqi Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with 
the BRITISH PETROLUEM CORPORATION Mr. Rahman Ibrahim. Made a numbered 
time (Fixed deposit) for 24 calendar months, valued at US$22,400,000.00 
(Twenty two Million, Four hundred thousand dollars only) in this bank. 
Upon maturity after two year, I sent a routine notification to his 
forwarding address but got no reply. 

After four month, we sent a 
reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the 
British petroleum corporation that Mr.Rahman Ibrahim died as a result 
of torture in the hand of Sadam Hussein during one of his trips to his 
country Iraq. On further investigation, I found out that he died 
without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was 
fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that 
Mr.Rahman Ibrahim did not declare any kin or relations in all his 
official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. 

This sum of US$22,400,000.00 has been floating as unclaimed since 2000 
in my bank as all efforts to get his relatives have hit the stones. 
According to the British law at the expiration of 5 (Five) years, the 
money will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody 
applies to claim the fund and the five year shaselapsed, myproposal is 
that i want to seek your consent as a foreigner to stand in as the 
owner of the money as the next of kin to the deceased so that the bank 
will transfer the money to your designated account. All documents and 
proof to enable you get this fund will be carefully worked out. I have 
secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the 
deceased beneficiaries, and more so I am assuring you that the business 
is a risk free involvement. 

Your share stays while the rest will be 
for me and forinvestment purposes as I will leave London by the end of 
the year. Thesharing of the funds will be based according to agreement 
between you and me. As soon as i receive an acknowledgement of receipt 
of this message in acceptance to our mutual business proposal, I will 
furnish you with the necessary modalities and disbursement ratio to 
suit both parties without any conflict. If this proposal is acceptable 
by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust i have bestowed in 
you. 

PLEASE, ENDEAVOR TO SEND YOUR CONFIDENTIAL TELEPHONE AND FAX 
NUMBER IN YOUR REPLY TO THIS BUSINESS TRANSACTION.

Regards, 

Dr. 
Edward Todd
