I am Mr.Ahmed Shaibu, an auditor with The Islamic Development
Bank(IDB). There was an account opened in this bank in 1998 and since
2002 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through
some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit
this money out urgently, this funds will go down the drains, into the
hands of either the board of directors of this bank or the funds may
eventually be discovered by the government as a dormant fund in the
forth coming audit by the Nations auditors.
They will confiscate or send it into the government' s treasury
account. The question now is who is the government and where is the
treasury? These are human beings like you and I.
The owner of this account is Mr. Hatem Kamil Abdul Fattah an Iraqi
national and a miner at Kruger Gold Co, a geologist by profession and
he died in 2003 . No other person knows about this account or any
thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my
investigation proved to me as well that his company does not know
anything about this account.
The amount involved is Ten Million Five hundred thousand United States
Dollars ($10,500.000) I am only contacting you, as a foreigner
because this money cannot be approved to a local bank account here,
but can only be approved to any foreign account and foreign
beneficiary because the money is in US dollars and the real owner of
the account is Mr Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah, himself a foreigner too.
I only got your contact address from my secretary who operates
computer; with belief in God that you will never let me down in this
business so that I will inform you the next step to take immediately.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the
management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner, who has
correct information of this account, which I will give to you later,
if you will be able to handle such amount in strict confidence and
trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit
because this opportunity will never come again in our life.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
