Dear Sir,

I am Millar Abdullah,a close associate and confidant of Udah Hussein the first son of 
The former Iraqi leader President Saddam Hussein.I was privy to a lot of huge transactions 
during the reign of his father before the outbreak of Iraq war and collapse of his father's 
regime.Because of the imminient war and treat by the United States to freeze all assets and 
funds of the Hussein family,which is already on the way,Udah mandated me as his confidant 
to look for a reliable, trustworthy and competent business man who will provide an 
unsuspecting bank account to remit $45 Million so that it will not be frozen or seized as 
terrorist funds.

This funds was moved out of Iraq from Central Bank Of Iraq with an inside connection of 
Udah to a suspense account of a Bank in Europe awaiting further Instructions.I left 
Baghdad on 8th April with the help of some French diplomats when it was evident that 
the regime will fall.I flee to Netherlands with the documents required to make the funds 
remittance to a safe account.

You are to take 25% of the total sum for assitance,5% is mapped out for any contigent 
expenses in the course of the transaction,while 75% will be for me and Odeh.If you are 
interested kindly get back to me by my email milabd@arabia.com so that we can discuss 
the modalities to remit this funds to your unsuspecting bank account.I need a guarantee 
of trust from you before we commence business.

I look forward to receiving your response.

May Allah Bless you!
Millar Abdullah

Dear Waruno,

Thanks for your response! I appreciate your willingness to assist transfer this Funds to an unsuspecting and
safe Bank account from the FBI, CIA and American government.Please My brother this transaction requires utmost trust,committment and secrecy. I want you to guarantee me that the funds will be secure in your bank account.Again I am under the care of some of my moslem brothers here in Netherlands and I want you to keep this transaction absolutely secret because most members of BAATH PARTY in Iraq have move into hiding.The Americans are seriously looking for us.As at few days back $650 Million was discovered at the home of one our BAATH party member in Baghdad and was confiscated by the American Government.


This Funds is so huge because it was earned from the sales of a ship load of Petroleum sold to a French Company before the war and we want someone strong and trustworthy enough to handle this transfer.Now you are to send me your banking details(Bank account) and the name of your Company so that I will present it to the Bank, where the Funds are in a suspence account to enable the bank verify your bank account and programme the Funds for immediate transfer as the Beneficiary.I need your assurance that you can handle such a huge transfer of funds.

Firstly, you are required to travel to Netherlands to open a non resident bank account for upgradement because the funds presently is in no body's bank account but in a suspense account under the Currency Regulatory Department Of the Bank.The reason being that the funds was moved out of Central bank of Iraq to the European Bank through cross credit transfer.This Department regulate and monitor funds movement into Europe

Secondly,A lawyer will prepare change of ownership in your name to enable you as the new beneficiary to officially apply for the funds transfer.So you are to give me your personal and company data to enable the lawyer prepare the Power of Attorney(Change Of Ownership).Besides, your banking details will be required by the Bank to empower the Bank transfer the funds into your designated bank account in your country from the non residential bank account which you will open with the bank in Europe after the non resident account has been upgraded.

After I have submitted your Bank account to the Bank ,I will then furnish you the contact of the Bank so that you will contact the bank as the beneficiary of the Funds and book an appointment with them on when you will travel to Netherlands to sign the neccessary documents at the bank for the non resident bank account before the funds can be remitted to your bank account in your country.Send your fax and telephone number where I will send forth the documents covering the funds movements and for further discussion respectively.

Kindly forward your telepone and fax number so that I can fax you the documents covering the movement of the funds from Central Bank Of Iraq to the Bank here in Netherlands.

In order not to be a suspect by your Government the transfer can be made in bits or you open another account in another country.

Expecting your response.

May Allah Bless us!

Millah Abdullah

Subject: Re: What You Should Do!

Dear Mr. Abdullah,

Well, that was a very quick response. I see that you are a business
man who likes prompt action. I like that.
How fortunate that I had something to check up at the office this
afternoon, even though it is a Saturday and we don't have open
hours.

It seems that this will be somewhat simpler than you perhaps thought,
because the head office of the company is in the Netherlands, and
I of course already have a bank account there. We do not need to
go into any troubles to transfer the money to this country (the
banks are obliged to report such large transactions to the monetary
authorities).

I advise you not to send me the documents by fax, because I think 
we need not advertize this too openly to other company employees
and personnel. Just send everything by mail to my following address:

               *********
               **************
               14195 Berlin
               Germany.

I am looking forward to getting the documents as soon as possible,
so we can immediately get down to business.

Sincerely,
Waruno Mahdi

Dear Waruno,  Thanks for your understanding.I am happy you understand 
that we have to keep this transaction confidential and secret because 
of the huge amount involved so that it will not be frozen like the 
$650 Million confiscated recently by the American government.I suggest 
that you open a new email where we can be communicating so as to be 
free.I prefer to send you the document covering the transaction to the 
new email you will open as a scanned document for security reasons.

Kindly forward the new email address so that I can send you the document 
and give you further directives involved in this transaction.Are you 
saying we should use your bank account here in the Netherlands to 
transfer the funds or you will use another another bank account.Kindly 
clarify me on this issue so that I may know what to do next.

Expecting your response.

May Allah bless you!

Millah Abdullah

                                     mahdi@fhi-berlin.mpg.de

Nevertheless, using the first address is more convenient, and will

Subject: Re: This is the Scanned Doc

Dear Millah,

Thank you for sending me the scan of the bank's letter of remittance.

I must inform you that our company had business dealings with that
country, particularly the delivery of chemical apparatus. I therefore
went to our financial department to compare the scan you sent with 
remittances we recieved from the same bank. 

I was surprised to note that the letter of remittance presented on
the scan you sent does not appear to resemble the ones we have here
at all. I therefore ask you to check back with the persons who have
provided you with that letter of remittance. 

There is a very large sum of money involved, and I can imagine that 
the temptation to embezzle it might be high, especially considering
that the persons originally in charge are no longer in a position 
to command. Please be sure, that nobody has been playing any tricks
on you. I must be sure of this first, before I can take the risk of
any further steps in this transaction.

Dear Waruno,

Thanks for your response.The document I sent you is the real document covering 
the movement of this funds from Central Bank Of Iraq to Abn Amro Bank. There 
is nothing false about it.This is a transaction I am intimately involved in and 
I know the Incidence which lead to the movement of the funds out from Iraq.There 
is a special arrangement laid down already by which this funds will be transfered 
to a safe account and the arrangement is an inside connection with ABN AMRO BANK.
This is so to prevent the funds from being frozen as in other Iraqi funds and 
assets which has been frozen in some American banks.This is a coded transaction, 
so dont look at the appearance of the document.It was done so for secuity reasons.
May be you are aware that $650 Million was recently frozen in Iraq owned by the 
transport Minister and also one of Saddam's son Qusay Husayn made away with 
$1 Billion from Iraqi Bank before the war started.So if the FBI  and CIA should 
decode this transaction,eventuall
 y the funds will be frozen.There is no doubt about it.

So my brother,it is obligatory to follow this instructions so that we will not 
have problem along the line.The inside arrangement is that the beneficiary will 
open a non resident bank account with ABN AMRO to upgrade the funds because 
presently it is floating in a suspence account under the Currency Regulatory 
Unit.Transfering the funds immediately to your account here in Netherlands without 
upgrading the funds will eventually raise suspicion since it is a large sum of 
money.This is the reason why a non resident bank account should be opened to 
upgrade the funds and service the account before the funds can eventually be 
transfered to your account.In addition, I have made contact with a lawyer who 
should prepare change of ownership in your name from Uday Hussein.So kindly get 
back to me so that I will know if I should go ahead and pay him on your behalf.

Please sir I will like to have your telephone number so that I can clarify some 
issue to you and at the same time have a heart to heart conversation.I will give 
you the contact of the bank if you are set for the transaction.

Expecting your prompt response.

May Allah Bless you.

Dear Millah,

I had to wait till after office hours to be sure nobody comes in 
just as I am writing to you.

Thank you for confirming the bonafide character of the document.
In a major transaction like this, one cannot be careful enough.
I am at the moment speaking with my superiors to arrange a short
leave, during which time I will come to Holland.

I don't trust the telephone, particularly since the telephone of a 
colleague of mine was tapped, as a result of which he later lost a
lot of money in a court case. If there is anything you cannot discuss 
with me by email, we leave that till we meet each other in Holland.
Talking over the telephone is no good. I also want to meet the lawyer 
first, before I can entrust him with anything.

Meanwhile, I am contacting an old friend who works in ABN AMRO, and
will hopefully have more informations soon.

Keep in touch.

Dear Waruno,

Thanks for your mail and understanding shown in this transaction.Please I must 
be quick to tell you not to contact your old friend whom you say work in ABN AMRO 
Bank because it is not all officials of the Bank are aware of this transaction.It 
is only the Manager and some officials in International Remittance Department and 
The Currency Regulatory Unit of the bank whom with their connections the funds 
was moved out from Central Bank Of Iraq to ABN AMRO.The people involved in this 
transaction and who have a stake dont want information to leak out to any of the 
officials who is not aware of this transaction because it will result in 
Investigation that will expose the funds.Besides the officials involve in this 
transaction does not want to loss their jobs.So please dont contact your ABN AMRO 
friend which will definitely lead to investigation, eventually the funds will 
be frozen.

Concerning the Lawyer,I will go ahead and pay him today to prepare the change of 
ownership since you are prepared to transact this business so that he will find 
his way.Please it is imperative you heed this instructions for the success of 
this transaction.I will send you the document in due time.

Expecting your response promptly.
May Allah Bless you!

Dear Millah,

don't pay any lawyer yet, because I am not yet prepared to
transact until I have met you and become convinced of the
seriousness of this bisness. The bank letter you sent me
contained some points which seemed strange to me, and I want
to consult my friend at ABN AMRO first to enquire whether
in their experience this is normal on such bank documents.
This has nothing to do with whether he is informed about the
concrete transaction or not (that's a secret between us two).
So, don't waste money on any lawyer yet.

I had meanwhile contacted the Amsterdam
Police, letting them know that I had this 
fraudster on the fishing line, and inform-

I asked whether they would like me to organize a meeting with the fraudster in Amsterdam, so that they could arrest him or photograph and otherwise identify him.

      
They replied that it would not be
opportune to arrange such a meeting with
the fraudster at this time, because they
wouldn‘t be able to take legal action.
But they said the information I sent them
was useful.

Good. So I decided to end the correspondence and sent the fraudster the following:

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.
But it was indeed very important that I contact my friend at

and so I can now as a friend perhaps save you a lot of trouble.

He told me that the particularities I mentioned to him were
typical of a group of Nigerian fraudsters. And even today, he
said, there was a court session in Amsterdam against five of
them. So now I can only advice to you what he recommended for
me to do. Please go immediately to the police and report this
case to them before the mobsters do you any harm. The address
my friend gave me is as follows:

    Amsterdam Police Department
    Central Criminal Intelligence & Investigations Division
    Financial Crimes Bureau
    Tel: 0031-20-5596458
    Fax: 0031-20-5595755
    Email: financiele-expertise@amsterdam.politie.nl
  
Indeed, God means it good with us that he gave me the inspiration
to ask my friend first before we embarked on this business.
Please let me know of the results of your further investigation
into this matter.

Regards, Waruno
