Dear Friend
,       I am Mr. Andren   Smith the Bank Manager of CITIBANK  London .I has urgent and very 
confidential   business proposition for you. On May 6, 1997, an Iraqi Foreign Oil   
consultant/contractor with the BRITISH PETROLUEM CORPORATION Mr. HAFFEZ   AL SADIQUE.Made a 
numbered time (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at US$29,500,000.00 (Twenty Nine 
Million Five hundred Thousand   Dollars only) in my branch. Upon maturity in 2000, I sent a routine 
  notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and 
finally we discovered from his contract   employers, the British petroleum corporation that Mr. 
HAFFEZ AL SADIQUE   died as a result of torture in the hand of Saddam 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 were fruitless. I therefore made further 
investigation and   discovered that Mr. HAFFEZ AL SADIQUE. Did not declare any kin or   relations 
in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit   paperwork in my Bank. These sums of 
US$29,500,000.00 have been floating   as unclaimed since 1997 in my bank as all efforts to get his 
relatives   have hit the stones. According to the British law at the expiration of 9   (nine) 
years, the money will revert to the ownership of the British   Government if nobody applies to 
claim the fund and the nine years is   the end of July 2006. Consequently, 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 proves 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 are assuring you that the business is risk   free involvement. Your share stays while the rest be 
for me and for   investment purpose, as I will leave London by the end of the year. The   sharing 
of the funds will be based According to agreement within you and me. As soon as I receive an 
acknowledgement of receipt of this message   in acceptance of 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 

Andren   Smith
