From:Ahmed Al Sultan

From The Desk of Mr. Ahmed Al Sultan. Branch Manager National Bank of Abu Dhabi Al Ain Branch Ali Ibn Abi Talib St, Near Oud Al Tawba Round About,United Arab Emirates U.A .E
Good day Friend,

I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and profitable business proposal, I got your e-mail address in Internet while browsing after I decided to contact you and ask for your assistance in this urgent matter, requiring trust and confidentiality. I am Mr. Ahmed Al Sultan, the Branch manager, National Bank of Abu Dhabi Al Ain Branch,Al Ain BranchAli Ibn Abi Talib St, Near Oud Al Tawba Roundabout,(UNITED ARABEMIRATES), Married with Five children.

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 America Oil consultant/contractor with Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Thomas Stone, made a numbered time (fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, Valued at US$12,000,000.00 (Twelve Million United State 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 Petroleum Corporation that Mr. Thomas Stone, died in the plane crash On October 31, 1999, (an Egyptian Boeing 767 Flight 990) with other passengers on board as you can confirm it yourself via the WEBSITE below for verification (BBC WORLD NEWS. WEBSITE)

Most astonishing of my discovery was that, all records bear no next of kin, meaning no member of Mr. Thomas Stone, family knows about the deposit therefore, no member of his family will ever come forward to claim the money, In order for the bank not to transfer the said sum of Twelve Million United State Dollars ($12,000,000.00) as unclaimed funds to the emirates treasury account, the above stated funds most be claimed immediately by somebody standing in as late Mr. Thomas Stone.
Next of Kin, because According to (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES LAW), at the expiration of (15) Fifteen years; the money will revert to the ownership of the (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES) Government if nobody applies to claim the fund, This revelation is only known to me because I was his personal account officer before I was posted to become the branch manager, now I seek your collaboration to act as next of kin to late Mr. Thomas Stone, to claim the funds and move them into useful investments.

We shall split the cash between our self upon the confirmation of the money into your account, I am ready to offer you 35% of the total fund and 60% for me while 5% will be set aside for any expenses might occur during the transaction. Please note that by the virtue of my position in the bank, I have worked out the perfect modality as well as I shall provide the relevant information's and documents for the successful claim and transfer of the funds in the account that will be provided by you.
