FROM THE DESK OF MR.HARRY RICHARD
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING MANAGER ,
BANK OF AFRICAN B.O.A
TREAT AS URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL.
I am the manager of auditing and accounting at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICAN) here in Cotonou, Benin Republic. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$7.350m dollars (SEVEN MILLION, THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS). in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with his entire family in July 2000 in a plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of king to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of king or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learn that all his supposed next of king or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of king or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of king in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Benin-be cannot stand as next of king to a foreigner.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account ,10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged,you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of king of the deceased with a text of application that i will send to you,so i will like you to send to me your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application.
I will not fail to bring to your notice, this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you received this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
