From: Dr. Hamza Ibrahim
I have a proposal for you, this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor the content against your will. I am Dr. Hamza Ibrahim, I work with a bank (one of the leading banks in Africa). Here in this bank exists a dormant account for the past 10 years which belongs to an American national who is now late, Mr. John Cuthbertson, who died on Alaska Airlines on Alaska Airline Flight 261 in January 31, 2000.
When I discovered that there had been no deposits or withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that none of the family members nor relations of the late person is aware of this account. Now I want an account overseas where the bank will transfer this fund.
Thereafter, I will destroy all related documents to this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount plus all the accumulated interest is US$15,500,000.00 (Fifteen million, Fivehundred thousand US Dollars only).
Now my questions are: -
1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. What will be your commission if you can facilitate the movement of this fund into your bank account?
Consider these and get back to me as soon as possible with your full names, private telephone and fax numbers, corresponding postal address, etc. Finally, it is my humble request that the information as contained herein be accorded with every confidentiality and the necessary secrecy it deserves I expect your urgent response to this request.
