DEAR FRIEND. Iam contacting you today for a profitable business prosposal. My name is WILLIAMS MBAH ,Iam the personal assistant to late Mr.muhammad El-Sahedi. EL-Sahedi was an oil merchant from Iran but resident in Nigeria. He carried on his oil and petroleum transactions from Nigeria but exported to oversaes. EL-Sahedi died recently in Iran as a result of the earthquake that hit that country.He died along with his whole Family. Apart from being his personal assistant I was also his best Friend and confidant.I was therefore in a position to know all his Financial transactions as he trusted me . Mr.Sahedi had a deposit of usd$40.5 million with a famous security and finance company here which i want you to help me receive and transfer into your bank account Till i come over to join you for sharing and investment as you may direct me. IF you agree to assist me ,I WILL GIVE YOU all the details of the transaction and the process of receiving the funds because you will act as the next of kin to MR.SAHEDI.For assisting me in this business you will take 20% of THE USD$40.5 MILLION.as your share and I will take 70% as my share while the remaining 10% will take care of the expenses we may incure at the process of the transaction. You will keep my share for me till I join you in your country a few weeks after the transfer is made. I want you to understand that I am not a dishonest Man. I am only doing this because if the security company discovers that Mr. Sahedi and all his relations are dead ,they will turn over the money to government and this will not help me. please note that there is no risk in this business as no relation of Mr. Sahedi is alive today and the security firm does not know he is dead. When you transfer the money the security firm will assume it is Mr. Sahedis next of kin who is doing the transer because I will provide you with his letters of administration to empower you as his next of kin. It was when I lEARNT OF his death that I went to his room to search for the paper work [Documents] relating to the said deposit. I Found them in concealed [secret] drawer in his bedroom. please reply this message soonest. Yours sincerely WILLIAMS MBAH
