Greetings RE: Newell & Justice P.A I have a proposal for you. However is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour it against your will. I am 52yrs, and I am an Attorney in NEWELL & JUSTICE P.A law firms in Cotonou, Republic of Benin. I have a client who died on a plane crash in 2003, who is a citizen of your country. My late client was an Ecowas contractor and Oil consultant here in Benin before his death. The bank manager of the deceased has notified my law firm to locate any member or relative of the deceased so that the bank can transfer the funds of my late client to his people. The amount at the moment and plus all the accumulated interest in this account stands at $13 million I have tried my best to locate any member or extended family relation of my late client for all these past years but it is not possible. Now I want a bank account overseas where the bank will transfer these funds immediately before the account will be declare as unserviceable and the funds returned into our government treasury. I will present you as the next of kin of my late client to the bank so that you can receive this fund for our mutual benefit. Now, I want to ask if you can handle this transaction with me in good faith. Can I give you this trust? Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. I will give you details and modalities on how to proceed when I get your positive reply. Regards, Mohamed Fahmi N/B: I will provide you with all the necessary legal procedural papers that will proof the claim that you are the next of kin/rightful beneficiary of the estate of the deceased. The process will not last more than 10 working days and the funds will be in your designated account for our mutual benefit. All I need is for you to guarantee me of your sincerity.
