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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm 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 foreigner. 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
