Dear Sir/Madam,

This mail may not be surprising to you if you have been following current events in the international media with reference to the Middle East and Palestine in particular.

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 {PLO} 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 in 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's 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 refused 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 US$4Billion Dollars and they are not relenting is their efforts to make me poor for life.

As you know in the Muslem world women take a backrole in the affairs of the state, hence my desire for a foreign assistance.

I have deposited the sum of US$20,000,000 {Twenty million US Dollars} with a security firm abroad,with whose name is withheld for now until we have opened communication,I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your bank account for safe keeping and any Investment opportunity. This arrangement is known to you and my personal Attorney,he will be dealing with you directly for security reasons as the case may be.

I will provide you with all his contact informations,to ease communications between you and him, he shall guide you through to the end of this transactions and that is, if you are willing to render the assistance that i need at this piont in time.

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 $20,000,000 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,

I thought you folks might get an Easter Sunday chuckle from the latest (to me anyway) E-mail spam/scam.

The source was to whom I have sent "abuse" notes.

Those of you with blind e-mail addresses might want to have some fun with the poor widder "Arafat."

I could certainly use a quick $20,000,000 to pay a few of my bills.

Do they think any sane person would believe this for one minute?

Unfortunately, there are any number of sane but stupid people who will get sucked in to this one!

Too late... I got this email last week and have already communicated with them to claim my share. I have sent them a deposit and will be flying out Monday to claim my reward.

It's not too late if you want to split this with me. Please FReepmail me your account number and pin and I'll deposit your share next week.

Please, darling Suha, let us not talk business. I have always loved you madly.

Minutes weigh like hours as I sigh for your embrace,

John Kerry.
