My name is Abel Cannan, son of late Ari Ben Cannan.My father untill his death was a member of the 
independent committee of eminent personels (ICEP) here in zurich. This comittee was charged with 
the task of finding accounts in switz banks which do not belong to swiss citizens and have been 
dormant over a specified time. i It might interest you to know that most of this accounts belonged 
to holocaust victims of the second world war of which my father was a survivor.
Right now i am sending you this mail because i need your help. my father left behind, large sum of 
money (about 50 million dollars) and other valuables with a security company in Zurich. this money 
was gotten from the findings of the ICEP. My father before his death wanted to use this money to 
secure I and my sisters future .

Right now there is an inquisition into the whereabouts of this money by the ICEP, but they cannot 
lay hands on this money because only my sister and i know the company and also possess all papers 
covering the transaction.

The problem am having now is how to claim this funds. That is why i am imploring you to stand on my 
behalf as the beneficiary to this funds. Right  now, am planning to leave switzerland to wherever 
this funds will lead me.  You do not have to worry about anything because because I have all the 
papers and documents covering the deposit, and which i intend to send to you  if you are willing to 
help me. My sister and i have decided to part with 35 percent of the whole funds. Based on trust 
and with your support, this funds will be delivered to you in your country.
