For your kind attention Good-day, you may be surprised to receive this letter from me, but it is a matter that I am convinced we can solve both, if we work together in harmony. However, I seek for your absolute confidence as I introduce myself to you. My name is AHMED HASSAN, Assistant Auditor OFFSHORE FINANCE HOME, DUBAI U.A.E. In the discharge of my duty as the Assistant Auditor, I stumbled on this domiciliary account that has remained dormant for three years now with Ten million six hundred US dollars (US$10.6m) in it. I contacted my directors and we sent out staff for enquiries about this fund and discovered that the account holder died in an accident. I am writing you so that we can work together to remit the money to you as the next of kin because this money belongs to a foreigner and has to be claimed by a foreigner. I guarantee this transaction under legitimate arrangements that will not bridge the law by both parties. I have options to offer you, first you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for your assistance, or you can go into partnership for a proper profitable investment of the money. Which ever option you choose, feel free to notify me. If for some reasons you do not prefer a partnership, I am willing to give you 25% of the money. Note, on the event that you cannot assist me to do the business, I beg you to still keep my contact and existence of this fund a secret. I also require you make available to me your confidential telephone and fax numbers to enable me communicate with you easily. It is simple process which will take a short while to process. To indicate your interest to work with us, I will give you more detailed information regarding on what to do and how to do it for us to achieve good success about the transaction as soon as I hear from you. Please reply to my private email address: email@example.com Best Regards, Dr. Ahmed Hassan
