Dear Friand ,
Is my Pleasure writing to you at this moment of the day, I am Dr.georgeziegan the Director in charge of Auditing and Accounting Unit of Continental Bank in Cotonou-Benin Republic.I got your contact in my search for a reputable and reliable person to do business with,I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you, On June 6 2003 a major contractor with ECONOMIC COMMUNITY OF WEST AFRICAN STATES (ECOWAS)made a numbered time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months. Valued at USD$17.5m dollar( Seventeen Million Five Hundred thousand US Dollars) I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.After a month, I sent a reminder and finally discovered from his contract employers, ECOWAS Cotonou Benin, that he died in the month of December 25th 2003.plane crash with Union Transport Africans Flight Boeing 727 in Cotonou.You will read more stories about the crash on visiting this website:
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making his "WILL", and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that he did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of USD$17.5m dollar (Seventeen Million Five Hundred thousand US Dollars) is still lying in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Benin banking Law, in line with the Federal Edict Act of 1979 at the expiration of 4(Four)years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Benin Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to act as next of kin to the deceased customer, so that the fruits of this old man labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials here in Benin,If you accept to carry out this project with me, We will share the money in the ratio of 70% for me and 30% for you.Upon your acceptance to do this deal with me, we will jointly effect the transfer within seven working days be rest assured that this transaction carries no risk and no extra responsibilities on your part, except the above mentioned roles and normally you will be required to maintain absolute secrecy throughout the duration of this transaction, because discussing it with a third party might jeopardise the entire transaction.
I am looking forward to receiving your interesting response on this offer.
Thanks for your understanding,
