Dear Partner,
I am Mr Philip Anderson,the Bank Manager of Citi bank 332 Oxford Street,London W1N 9AA +4470211148697.please i hope that this will not be a misplacement of trust hence I make this urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6, 1997, an Iraqi Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the British Petroleum Corporation Hafeez Al Sadique.
Made a numbered time (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months,valued at US$7.500,000.00 (Seven Million, Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my branch.Upon maturity in 2003,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 British petroleum corporation that HAFFEZ AL SADIQUE died as a result of tutu re in the hand of sad dam Hussein during one of his trips to his country Iraq as one of the Iraqi elites opposing the tyrannical leadership of sad am Hussein.

On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a will, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr HAFFEZ AL SADIQUE. did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in Citi bank here in oxford street London.This sum of US$7.500,000.00 have been floating as unclaimed since 2003 in my bank as all efforts to get his relatives have hit the stones.

According to the British law at the expiration of 8 (eight)years, the money will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the fund and the eight years is the end of December 2007 with nine month validation period which will finally expire by August 2008.Consequently, my proposal is that i want to seek your consent as a foreigner to stand in as the owner of the money as the next of kin to the deceased so that the bank will transfer the money to your designated account.

All documents and proves to enable you get this fund will be carefully worked out. I have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries, and more so I am assuring you that the business is risk free involvement. Your share stays while the rest be for myself and for investment purpose as i will invest my share in your country .The sharing of the funds will be based According to agreement within you and i.

As soon as i receive an acknowledgment of receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business proposal, I will furnish you with the necessary modalities and disbursement ratio to suit both parties without any conflict. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust i have bestowed in you bearing in mind my position as any attempt to sabotage me will automatically lead to lost of all my life effort in the banking industry. betray me will make me suffer the rest of my life.

Thanks in anticipation of your friendly cooperation and further advice.
Yours faithfully.
