Dear Intending partner

This mail may not be surprising to you if you have  been following 
current events in the international media with reference to the 
Middle East and Palestine in particular.
I am Mrs. SUHA ARAFAT, the wife of YASSER ARAFAT,the Palestinian
leader who died recently in Paris.

Since his death and even prior to the announcement, I have been 
thrown into a state of  antagonism,confusion, humiliation, 
frustration and hopelessness by the present leadership of the  
Palestinian Liberation Organization and the new  Prime Minister. I 
have even been subjected to  physical and psychological torture. As a 
widow that  is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with  everybody 
in the country at the moment.

You must have heard over the media reports and the  Internet on the 
discovery of some fund in my husband  secret bank account and 
companies and the  allegations of some huge sums of money deposited 
by  my husband in my name of which I have refuses to disclose or give 
up  to the corrupt Palestine Government. In fact the  total sum 
allegedly discovered by the Government so far is in the tune of about 
$6.5 Billion Dollars. And they are not relenting on their effort to 
make  me poor for life. As you know, the Moslem community  has no 
regards for woman, hence my desire for a  foreign assistance. You can 
visit the BBC news broadcast below for better understanding of what I 
am talking about;

I have deposited the sum of 20 million dollars with a private security firm
abroad whose name is withheld for  now until we open communication. I shall
be grateful if you could receive this fund into your bank  account for safe
keeping and any Investment opportunity. 

This arrangement is known to you and my  personal Attorney.He might be 
dealing with you  directly for security reasons as the case may be.
In view of the above, if you are willing to assist  for our mutual 
benefits, we will have to negotiate  on your Percentage share of the 
$20,000,000 that will be kept in your position for a while and  
invested in your name for my trust pending when my  Daughter, Zahwa, 
will come off age and take full responsibility of her  Family 

Please note that this is a golden opportunity that  comes once in 
life time and more so, if you are  honest, I am going to entrust more 
funds in your  care as this is one of the legacy we keep for our  
In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security and 
international media as I am giving you this information in total 
trust and confidence I  will greatly appreciate if you accept my 
proposal in  good faith. Please expedite action and all response to my
e-mail address below.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs Suha Arafat
