Dear Friend,
Please, I want to introduce myself and this business opportunity to you.
I am Mr. Mabika Tadiwa, the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of Lloyds Tsb Bank Plc, Cotonou, Republic of Benin, West Africa, and also a special account officer of Mr. Peter Lund, a European.
He was a seasoned contractor with Benin Cement Company, Cotonou, who unfortunately died in a plane crash of Union Transport Africaines Flight Boeing 727 in Cotonou,  Republic of Benin on 25th December, 2003.
Consequently, I'm seeking your consent to present you as the next-of-kin of the deceased so that the outstanding fixed deposit (US$22.1M) will be remitted into any designated account of yours to be shared by both of us in the ratio of 60% to me and 40% for you.
He died without any registered next of kin and as such the funds now have an open beneficiary mandate. If you are interested please get back to me on my private infomation, e-mail: Mabikatadiwa,
Best regards,
Mr.Mabika Tadiwa.
