Assalamu alaikum , I am Mrs. Amira Rasheed Haji, I am a business woman in Lebanon and America is where I am from to be precise but got married to an Iraqi man, who have been nice and faithful to me, due to the problem in Lebanon I lost Mr. Khalid Rasheed my husband who was involved in a bomb blast during the time Israel seems to be firing missiles into Lebanon. I am the only wife of my husband and we had no child together, his business was crippled too in this resent bombardment so there is nothing left for me to survive on, our house and other properties were destroyed the Israeli where taking advantages of the civilians in Lebanon, that time. I went back to my wrecked house to check for some little valuables like diamonds and gold in my jewel box but non was recovered, I came across my husband diary and I found out that there is a huge sum of money (Financial institute) $9.5 million USD in where he kept all the best sum of money that would give me a new life as soon as Beirut and Israel settles their conflicts. I am a newly wedded wife and we performed a traditional wedding which most court in the Arab world recognizes but there is no document signed in court that is where I have a problem in claiming my husband money from the FINANCIAL FIRM as they are requesting for the prove and certified papers that will make me entitled to his will. I met a lawyer who promised to assist me but I need someone from abroad with a valid and reputable account to receive the money as we are going to get it back through transfer, someone whom the lawyer can arrange to be my husband's business partner that loan the money to my husband to start his contracting business. Presently, I am in (YARMOUK [UNOFFICIAL REFUGEE CAMP) Yarmouk, which is an *"unofficial" camp, is home to the largest Palestine refugee community in Syria . It lies 8 kilometres from the centre of Damascus and is inside the city boundaries. Although, not recognized as a camp, the road signs read: Mukhayam al-Yarmouk (Arabic for Yarmouk camp). Your share of the whole transaction is 25% of the total sum while 5% will beset as for any expenses you might incur at the cause of the transaction and 5% will be for charity, which will be done as soon as the funds gets to you, since I have no better chance of getting the money directly from here. I don't mean to act in this form but recovering my late husband money by any means possible is better than allowing the security company to use it for their own interest. Please do let me know your concern as life in Damascus is not too simple and easy but it's the place I can still stay for now until get my 60% from you. Thanks and I pray Allah will bless you as you are trying to assist me to recover what my late husband had suffered to get. You will reach me with this email address,[email@example.com] Sincerely, Mrs. Amira Rasheed
