Hello My Dear,
 I got your contact through a desperate and personal search on the web for someone I could really 
trust as I have prayed over it and I wish to express my interest to handle this matter with you as 
Ibelieve that you are reliable in handling these type of international transaction.
Though we have not met before but I believe one has to risk confiding  in someone to succeed 
sometimes in life but however is not mandatory or in any manner compel you to honour against your 
Although I am not suppose to contact you through email but it is  because of the confidential 
nature of this transaction please bear with me. I am Mr. Saleem  Ahmed , a top bank official in the 
National Bank of Dubai, (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES). I am writing this letter to ask for your support 
and co-operation to carry out this business opportunity in my department.
On June 6, 1999,an Oil consultant/contractor with Dubai Petroleum Corporation, MR David Van 
Burskirk , made a numbered time(fixed)deposit for twelve calendar months,Valued at US$10,500, 
000.00 (Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) in my Branch. Upon maturity 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 Dubai 
Petroleum Corporation that MR David Van Burskirk , died in the plane crash On October 31,1999,(an 
Egyptian Boeing767Flight 990) with other passengers on board as you can confirm it yourself via the 
website below:
On further investigation I found out that he died without making a WILL and attempts to trace his 
next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that MR David Van 
Burskirk  did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents,including his 
bank deposit paperwork in my bank.
This sum of US$10,500, 000.00 and the interest is being rolled over  with the principal sum at the 
end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it and according to UNITED ARAB EMIRATES 
LAW at the expiration of (Ten) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the UNITED ARAB 
EMIRATES Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
My proposal is that I will like you to stand as the next of kin to MR David Van Burskirk , so that 
the fruit of this old man labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt Government officials. 
This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full name and address so that I can 
forward to you the contact of our bank Attorney for preparing the necessary documents and 
affidavits which will put you in place as the
next of kin.
Any bank account in any part of the world,which you will provide,will then facilitate the transfer 
of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.The money will be paid into your account for us 
to share in ratio of  45% for me and 45% for you and 10 % will be set aside for expenses in cured 
during the business.There is no risk at all. 
The paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch 
Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.If you are interested,please reply 
immediately and upon your responses I shall provide you with more details and relevant documents 
that will help you understand the transaction.
Please observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be most 
profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your 
Please upon the receipt of this mail message,send to me the following below to enable me start the 
processing of the transfer,
