Attention:Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Mrs. SUHA ARAFAT, the wife of YASSER ARAFAT, the Palestinian leader who
died recently in Paris. Since his death and even prior to the
announcement, I have been thrown into a state of antagonism, confusion,
humiliation,frustration and hopelessness by the present leadership of the
Palestinian Liberation Organization and the new Prime Minister. I have even
been subjected to physical and psychological torture.As a widow that is so
traumatized, I have lost
confidence with everybody in the country at the moment.You must have heard
over
the media reports and the Internet on the discovery of some fund in
my husband secret bank account and companies and the allegations of some
huge
sums of money deposited by my husband in my name of which I have
refuses to disclose or give up to the corrupt Palestine Government. In
fact the
total sum allegedly discovered by the Government so far is in the
tune of about $6.5 Billion Dollars. And
they are not relenting on their effort to make me poor for life. As you
know,
the Moslem community has no
regards for woman, more importantly when the woman is from a christian
background, hence my desire for a foreign assistance.I have deposited the
sum of 21 million dollars with a Financial firm in Europe whose name is
withheld for now until we open communication.

I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your bank account for
safe keeping and any Investment opportunity. This arrangement will be
known to you and I alone and all our correspondence should be strictly on
email
alone because our government has tapped all my lines and are
monitoring all my moves.In view of the above, if you are willing to assist
for
our mutual benefits, we will have to negotiate on your Percentage
share of the $21,000,000 that will be kept in your position for a while and
invested in your name for my trust pending when my
Daughter, Zahwa,
will come off age and take full responsibility of her Family
Estate/inheritance.
Please note that this is a golden opportunity that comes once in life time
and
more so, if you are honest, I am going to entrust more funds in your
care as this is one of the legacy we keep for our children.In case you
don't accept please do not let me out to the security and international
media as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence I
will
greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith.
Please expedite action.
Yours sincerely,
Suha Arafat
