Subject: Hello!!!


I am Ms. Amina Usman a banker here in Syria. Because of the nature of what
i want to tell you, i will like that all our discussion be made private and
secret even if you don't want to do it with me.

The reason i contacted you is because of one of my late customer Mr. Adel
Walid. He died 3 years ago in the Syria war and left 8.2 million United
States dollars in his account. Since then no relative have come to claim
his money . I think we can work things out.

Unfortunately, my client died with his family by a bomb blast in his home
and his account mandate does not have any contact of any of his relatives
as next of kin. I have made several inquiries to locate any of his
relatives without any success and upon further inquiries, i found out that
my late customer as an international businessman mandated that in case of
death and no relatives come up for his money after 2 years, the money
should be given to his foreign business partner whom he did not mention his
name or nationality.

As his personal account officer before he died, I have been mandated by my
bank management to provide the next of kin to his account. If i don't get
any of his relatives in 29 days the account balance of $8.200,000 will be
returned to the government treasury.

Since you are a foreigner and i cannot find any of his relatives, I now
seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the late account
holder. You and I will share the money 50/50 after the money is transferred
to you. I think this is fair decision instead of the Syrian government and
top bank officials taking the money

I was his personal accountant before he died, i have all the vital
information for us to claim the money without any problem I only worry
about your ability to handle this deal properly and to keep this
transaction secret to protect my job. The transaction is 100% risk free as
I have studied and investigated the transaction properly as a professional
banker and discovered that it's risk free before making contact to you.

I will make sure that everything works out hence it is for our benefit,
also be rest assured that whoever that I present to the bank remains the
next of kin to our late customer .

I will be here to back it up with every legal documents in your favor to
enable the bank give approval to the fund in our own interest and have the
fund transferred to your account in over there for our mutual benefit . I
will immediately arrange for my traveling to come over for the sharing as
soon as it is confirmed in your account.

If you are interested to do the deal, write to me and i will tell you what
we need to do.

Ms. Amina
