Kindly read carefully &amp; Reply Back,

With Due Respect I humbly write to solicit for your partnership and assistance in the transfer and investment of my inheritance fund (USD 9.5M) Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars from my late father who died mysteriously last year.

I will like to further introduce myself to you. My name is Miss Haajar Usman, I am age of 19 years girl, am only child of my late parents Mr.and Mrs.Alhaji Jabbar Usman ,It was very evident that he was poisoned to death. In my culture, when a man dies, if he does not have a male child, the brothers shares his property leaving both the wife and the daughters empty handed including the house they live in. This is the exact case with me as I am the only daughter of my father. I lost my mother when I was barely a year old and my father refused to re-marry another wife because he felt solely responsible for my mother death.

This is so because he concentrated much on his businesses that he rarely pays attention to domestic affairs. He was always travelling taking care of his businesses that he did not notice when my mother took ill. He thought it was a minor illness and was ignorant of this. My mother on her own resorted to self-medication. It was not until the illness degenerated that my father took my mother to hospital where she was diagnosed to find out that hypatitis had eaten deep into her blood stream. She didn't last long before she died.

This happened when I was barely a year old. Based on this, my father could not forgive himself easily because of it and said he was responsible for her death as he could have saved her if only he had paid attention to the things at home rather than concentrating much on his businesses.

Despite all entreaties by friends and relatives, he refused to remarry but ensured that I had everything that I wanted. It was as a result of this that he made me the next of kin to his f und deposit with the bank and stated that in the event of any eventuality, I should have a direct access to the fund only when I am 25 years of age otherwise I should have a guardian/partner intercede on my behalf for the release of the funds to me. Unfortunately, he died late last year and I am 19 years of age currently.

This is why I have contacted you to serve as a guardian to me and as my foreign partner for the transfer and investment of the fund overseas, My uncles does not know about the fund because he had already taken my father's houses and other properties because I am a girl and he said I do not have rights for any property.
He has requested to have my father's bank papers but I simply told him that I do not know where he kept them. He took the house in the village while the houses in the town were sold out.

Right now i am in the hotel and do sincerely want to travel out of the country. This can only happen when I have secured the relea se and transfer of the funds into your bank account. This why it is important that we have a plan on the type of lucrative business that we can invest the funds on.
I had at various times had discussions with the director of international remittance unit of the bank where my father deposited the funds and I was assured that once, I have someone who would be willing to receive the funds on my behalf, they shall commence all proceedings to effect the release and transfer of the funds into the person's designated account.

Now, that you have signified your interest to partner with me, it would only be very necessary if you contact the bank and request for the release and transfer of my inheritance fund into your nominated account for the purpose of investment and to further have me come over to your country to continue with my studies.
I shall be giving you the banks contact details as soon as I hear back from you so that you will go ahead and contact the ba nk.

PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH THIS EMAIL ADDRESS (mishaajar19usman@hotmail.co.uk)

Your urgent response will be appreciated
Talk to you the more.

May God bless you for helping me
Best Regard
Sincerely
Mis.Haajar Usman

18th Floor, Bangunan Ambank
Group, 55 Jalan Raja Chulan
50200 Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia.

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Barr. Adam A.M.Abbas, a legal practitioner with Adam & Partners in 18th Floor, Bangunan Ambank Group, 55 Jalan Raja Chulan 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I saw your contact and profile and decided that you could cooperate with me in this proposition.

I have a client by Name Mr. Katab Kampanidis, who was deceased in November, 2011, in Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia. Before his death, my late
client deposited in a Bank the sum of $15.5m in here in my country for himself, with the hope of transferring it to his country during his annual leave.

Since his death I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided solicit for the partnership of a trustworthy foreigner who I can present as the next of kin to my late client to enable me repatriated the fund overseas. This is why I have contacted you.

The bank has informed me that if the deposit is not claimed within a few working days, the said deposit will declared unserviceable by the Bank and forfeited to the federal government as the law governing abandoned deposit in my country stipulates. Hence, the bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the MONEY forfeited within the next few official working days.

Since, I have been unsuccessful in my search; I have resolved to seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at (USD15.5M) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money as follows; 60% will be for me, while 40% will be for you. Should this meet your utmost consideration, please give me your earliest reply through my email for further details. Please feel free to ask any question you consider necessary.

My chambers will acquire all legal documents that can be used to back up claim. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of the law.

The confidentiality in this transaction can not be overemphasized as I trust and believe that you will oblige us the security and attention it demands. Please treat this transaction with absolute confidentiality.

Thank you very much.

Good day,

I am Chris Middlebrook. I have emailed you earlier on without any response from you.On my first email I mentioned about my late client Peter, whose relatives I cannot get in touch with. But both of you have the same last name so it will be very easy to front you as his official next of kin.

I am compelled to do this because I would not want the finance house to push my clients funds into their treasury as unclaimed inheritance. If you are interested you do let me know so that I can give you Comprehensive details
on what we are to do.
