Dear Sir, I am MR.AKA LAMBERT the manager of foreign remmittance department of banque centrale Lome Togo, In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US $10.5m dollar(ten million five hundred thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foriegn customer,known as Fouad Abdel Ghafar Ahmed who died along with his entire family in October,1999 in plane crash with egyptian air line. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the decease as indicated in our banking guidlines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him at the plane clash leaving no body behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the decease for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we dont want this money to go intothe bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after seven years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasure as unclaimed fund. The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a togoliase cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that35% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, inrespect to the provision of a foreign account, 5% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% will be for me and my collegues. There after I and my collegues will visit your country for disbursment according to the percentages indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arrange, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effec tive communication and location where in 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 that this business is hicth-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. Please you should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Yours faithfully, MR.AKA LAMBERT. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
