Dear Friend.

Assalamu Alaikum, may Allah 
bless us in the name of
Allah Almighty the merciful. My name is 
Sadeq, I am a crude oil marketer in Baghdad, Iraq.
During the 
war led by the U.S and coalition forces, my
home, investment and 
properties were bombed down. I
lost my wife and two children in the 
bomb blast and I
escaped death but sustained a very serious internal
injury that leads me to have been diagnosed with
esophageal cancer. It 
has defiled all forms of medical
treatment, and right now I have only 
about a few
months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not 
particularly lived my life so well, as I
never really cared for anyone 
(not even myself) but my
business. Though I am very rich, I was never 
I was always hostile to people because of my closeness
Saddam Hussein first son Uday Hussein and only
focused on my business 
as that was the only thing I
cared for. But now I regret all this as I 
now know
that there is more to life than just wanting to have
or make 
all the money in the world. Now that Allah has
called me,  I want Allah 
to be merciful to me and
accept my soul, I have decided to give alms to 
organizations, as I want this to be one of the last
good deeds 
I do on earth. 

I need help from a reliable and honest person I can
trust in the name of Allah the merciful. Considering
my present 
predicament and the political situation in
Iraq, I now seek your 
assistance to help me clear
Thirty million US-Dollars 
(US$30,000,000.00) that I
have with a recognize bank in Europe and I 
will want
you to help me collect this deposited fund and
dispatched it 
to charity organizations as i will
instruct you to do.

I donât need 
any telephone communication in this
regards because of my health, the 
present situation in
Iraq and some of my relatives around me. I donât 
them to know about this new development and with Allah
merciful, all things are possible. As soon as I
receive your reply I 
shall give you the contact of my
lawyer in Europe and i will also issue 
you a letter of
authority through my lawyer that will prove you as the
next of kin to this fund base on my instructions. I
want you to always 
pray for me and I have set aside
15% for you for your time and 
patience. Please send a
reply through my below email address with your 
contact information for more private and confidential
communication and note that any delay in your reply
will give me room 
in searching for another person for
this same purpose because you are 
the only person i
have contacted for now. Please assure me that you 
act accordingly as i will instruct you to do.

Insya Allah, 
Mohammed Sadeq.
