unfortunately lost his life through assassinated on February 14, 2005
when explosives equivalent to around 300 kg of C4 were detonated as his
motorcade drove past the Saint George Hotel in the Lebanese capital,
The bank has no knowledge about his death. Upon
this discovery that i decided to make this business proposal to you

remain unclaimed here after nine years, the money will be transferred
into the Central Bank Treasury as unclaimed fund.
to contact you now is that, a foreign has the legal right to put claim
to such deposit followed by you will proof your claim with the bank.
Therefore, I want you to apply as his business partner. This

which may arise during the process of transferring the fund into your
account. I and my entire family will leave here immediately for your
country in order to share the profits and we also invest part of my own
share over there, as soon as the fund is transferred into your account.
endeavour to keep this transaction very secret and highly confidential
because i will lose my work here as bank staff, where the bank
authority here finds out that you and I are collaborating in this
"Special Deal". Please also be rest-assured that this business is 100%
risk-free, and all the information and data's you will need to make
