Dear Friend,

I am Mr.David Diop,the Director of bill and exchange at

the foreign remittance department of CITI BANK Senegal.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $6m in

an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer

(Kurt Kahle) who died along with his wife and son on a Monday, 31 July,

2000,13:22 GMT in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been

expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money

because we cannot release it unless some body applies for

it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated

in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we

learnt that all his supposed next of kin 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 kin 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 banking laws and guidlines here stipulates that if such

money remained unclaimed after some years, the money will

be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business

is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a


I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a

respect to the provision of a foriegn 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,your private telephone and fax number for easy and

effective communication is very important.

I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction

is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any attom

of fear as all required arrangements have been made for

smooth and succesful transfer. Please contact me

immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr David Diop
