Office of the Manager,
Natwest Bank, 
London.

Dear Friend, 
I am Dr. 
Edward Todd the Manager of Natwest Bank Plc Landon. I have urgent and 
very confidential business proposition for you. On April 10, 2002, 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 2002 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 years has elapsed, my proposal 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 for 
investment purposes as I will leave London by the end 
of the year.
The sharing 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, I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT DOING 
BUSINESS OVER THE INTERNET IS RISKY. ENDEAVOR TO SEND YOUR CONFIDENTIAL 
TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBER IN YOUR REPLY TO THIS BUSINESS TRANSACTION.
Regards, 
Dr.Edward Todd
