Dear Friend
,       I am Mr. Andren   Smith the Bank Manager OF STANDARD BANK IN LONDON I has urgent and very 
confidential   business proposition for you. On May 6, 2001, an Iraqi Foreign Oil   
consultant/contractor with the PETROLUEM CORPORATION Mr. HAFFEZ   AL SADIQUE.Made a numbered time 
(Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at US$17,500,000.00 (seventh 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 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$17,500,000.00 have been 
floating   as unclaimed since 2001 in my bank as all efforts to get his relatives   have hit the 
stones., , 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, The   sharing 
of the funds will be based According to agreement within you and me. As soon as I receive an 
acknowledgment of receipt of this message   in acceptance of our mutual business proposal, I will 
furnish you with   the necessary modalities . If this proposal is acceptable by you. plesae get
