Urgent Proposal

Greetings from Dubai,

Hey! Now it’s oil money! Lots of it!

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners.
I am Mr. Nadeem A. Siddiqui, currentlyHead of International Business Officer with a reputable bank here in U. A. E. I write you this proposal in good faith,
believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you.

I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On November 6, 2003, an Iraqi Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the CHEVRON PETROLEUM CORPORATION, MR MOHAMMADAL NASSER made a (Fixed deposit) for 36 calendar months, valued at US$17,500,000.00 (seventeen Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his account officer before I was moved to my present position recently.
Upon Maturity in 2006, as his account officer and as well the bank Manger, it is my duty to notify him on the maturity date so I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but the letter was returned undelivered.
After sometime, I tried sending back the letter, but it was again returned and finally I discovered from his contract employers, Chevron Petroleum Corporation that Mr. Mohammad Al Nasser died as a result of torture in the hand of Saddam Hussein (former Iraqi President) during one of his trips to his country Iraq, as he was accused of leaking information to the Americans. On further investigation, I discovered that Mr. Al Nasser’s family wife and two sons died during the Gulf War in Iraq and was the reason why he did not declare any next of kin or relation in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank and did not leave any WILL. This sum of US$17,500,000.00 have been floating and placed under dormant/unserviceable account by my
bank management since no one have heard from the owner since 2003. I wish to let you know that all the investigation I have made so far, my bank management is not aware of it, I am the only one that have the information.

With the recent change of government in my country and with their efforts to support the United Nations in checkmating terrorism aid in the U. A. E. By end of this year, the government will pass a new financial control law which will give the government authority to interrogate account owners of above $5,000,000.00 to explain the source of the funds,making sure it is not for terrorism support. If I do not move this money out of the country immediately, by end of the year the government will definitely confiscate the money, because my bank cannot provide the account owner to explain the source of the money.
I cannot directly transfer out this money without the help of a foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an assistance. As the Account Officer to late Al Nasser, coupled with my present position and status in the bank as Chief Credit & Risk Officer, I have the power to influence the release of the funds to any foreigner that comes up as the next of kin to the account, with the correct information concerning the account, which I shall give you. All documents to enable you claim this fund will be carefully worked out and there is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law, beside U. A. E is porous and anything goes.

If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied. If you are interested, contact me as soon as you receive this message so we can go over the details. Thanking you in advance and may God bless you.

Please, treat with utmost confidentiality. I shall send
you copy of the deposit certificate issued to Al Nasser when the
deposit was made for your perusal.

I wait your urgent response.


Mr. Nadeem A. Siddiqui.

After going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.
The owner of this account is a foreigner, a miner and an industrialist.He made millions of dollars before he died victoriously.
Since DEC 262003 website detailsasfollow:
no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it.
My investigation proved to me that the account has no other beneficiary
and that until his death he was the manager director of aluminium &
steelindustries (PTY). SA.
We will start the transfer with the total suminvolved [ Twenty Five
Million USDollars [ USD] only, into your account, as a safe

I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me
down in this business. Also send your private telephone number and fax
number including the full details of the account to be used for the
deposit. I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down
in this business proposition. With my influence and the position in the
bank, as anofficial whom is working in our favour we can transfer this
money to any foreigner’s reliable account which you can provide with
assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in
your country for sharing.
The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately you

build confidence you can write immediately to discuss with me the
modalities,after I will make this remittance in your presented account and
fix my resign date, to fly down to your country at least 7 days ahead of
the fund transferred and confirm into the account.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 45% of the total
amount, 50% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses might have
incurred during the process of transferring.
I am waiting for your reply on my Althertive email:

Hmmm.. the email addresses don’t match, and he changes the spelling of his name…

Hmmm.. odd phrasing…

Hmmm.. he keeps mentioning Africa, but ‘dot hk’ is Hong Kong…

Hmmm.. he doesn’t mention the bank…

Hmmm.. that’s a LOT of money… and he did say all the documents will be destroyed… I don’t think anyone would notice if a computer tech suddenly deposited 25 million… Hmmm.

How many errors did you count? Leave your answer as a Comment!
