Hello My Dear Friend,

My name is Laurent Mello Cote d’Ivoire nationality and I am working as an accountant general and 
head of the Auditing Dept with the Bridge Bank Cote d`Ivoire and I will be forwarding you a scan 
copy of my international passports and my working Identification for your view.

I will be here inside the bank to back you up as the original next of kin to our late depositor 
Eng. Miller Carlos Hector National of your Brazil, who used to work with an oil servicing company 
here in Cote D’Ivoire.

My client, his wife and their three children were involved in the ill fated Kenya Airways crash in 
the coasts of Abidjan in January 2009 in which all passengers on board died and since then I have 
made several inquiries to your embassy in order to locate any of his clients extended relatives but 
all of my efforts as regards to that has been unsuccessful after several unsuccessful attempts.

I decided to trace his last name over the internet just to see if I could locate any member of his 
family member before I contacted you for the particular interest in this huge deposit fund with our 
bank here in Cote d’Ivoire where the deceased has an account valued at about (millions of US 

They have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or the bank will declare the account 
un-serviceable and thereby send the funds to the bank treasury account.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating his relatives for over last 4 years now, I will seek 
your consent to present you as the next of kin to our deceased client to enable us proceeds with 
the transfer of the fund to your bank account valued at (millions of US dollars)

After the transfer is been completed, we can share the fund and all I required from you is your 
honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through.

I am guaranteeing you that this transaction will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that 
will protect you from any breach of the law.

In your mail reply, I want you to give me your full names and your resident address/date of birth, 
including your private telephone and fax numbers for proper communications.

In order to hasten up every necessary arrangement, contact me immediately on my private email 

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Laurent Mello
