From: Mrs. Nazek Audi Hariri.
Greetings to you, with warm heart I offer my friendship, and greetings, and I hope this fax meets you in good time. However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance and the immense benefit it will be to you. After careful consideration with my children, we resolved to contact you for your most needed assistance in this manner. I duly apologize for infringing on your privacy, if this contact is not acceptable to you, as I make this proposal to you as a person of integrity.
First and foremost I wish to introduce myself properly to you. My name is Mrs. Nazek Audi Hariri, mother of five, my husband Mr.Rafik Baha al-din Hariri a very successful businessman and proficient politician in Lebanon. Though I was involved in some of my husband's business, which was very vast and successful. My beloved husband was among those killed in the massive explosion that rocked central Beirut's fashionable seafront district, on his way back from Lebanon parliament on 14th February. 2005.
When my husband died, I was contacted as next of kin by a private security firm in Europe to come forth to claim the consignment with the Certificate of Deposit and claim a safety deposit my husband has in their Vault in his name.
I discovered a Certificate of Deposit for the safety deposit with this private security firm, and other documents relating to the safety deposit in a book. The safety deposit, which is a trunk, is stocked with hard currency (US Dollars) totaling $36,000,000 (Thirty Six Million US Dollar), which was generated from cash payments from his business associates.
Though I knew my late husband was politician and the money was reserved for May election campaign. This has came as a shock to me and my children, and we have decided to have this fund invested immediately in commercial and residential properties in abroad as well as profitable ventures, now that the US Govt. has ordered Syria Govt. to leave and not to intervene in any Lebanon affair and we don't know what is going to happen, hence we sincerely propose to you to render us your most needed assistance in this regard. If you agree to render us your assistance, your role in this project will be to act on my behalf as a trustee to receive the safety deposit containing the funds from the Security firm.
Though I believe this transaction should be based on mutuality, a family associate, who is a diplomat, will protect my family's interest, and I have informed him that I am locating one of my husband's business associates (you) to handle the funds and pending till the crisis in Lebanon will die down, the part of service s the diplomat is required to render is to assist you in claiming the consignments from the terminal of the security company and to set up a transit domiciliary account in your name in one of the prime bank he has contacts to carry out the exercise through the back door.
The purpose of the account is to enable you deposit the funds for further transfer into your nominated bank For your reliable assistance, we are offering you 35 % of the funds. I thank you in advance as we anticipate your assistance in enabling us achieve this goal. On hearing from you,
I will forward your contact to the diplomat who will be representing us, and also give you his contact for both of you to communicate and proceed with the transaction. He will be working with you for a mutual conclusion of the process and I look forward to a long lasting business relationship with you. As you may understand, due to my husband sensitive position in the present government, it is not safe to communicate with me via phone or fax.
Please all your correspondence should be forwarded to my lawyer who reside in London-United Kingdom
