Hello my friend,
I am calling from Benin Republic West Africa. I am Barrister Chito Chimu
, an English speaking Beninoise, Solicitor & Financial Attorney/Consultant.

I was moved to contact you based on the present condition of things here.There
is a foreigner who registered with me as his personal Attorney and he was
a stock broker as well as a one time secret agent in importing oil from
overseas for our former Ministers. My client was also a Diamond/Gold Merchant.

So, on 2nd June 2001 my client made a numbered time (Fixed) deposit for
US$10.700,000.00(Ten Million,Seven Hundred Thousand US Dollars Only) with
a Bank here in Benin,with standing statement/agreement with the bank that
all correspond! ences in respect to the fixed deposit contract must be sent
to him through my humble chambers. Upon maturity, the routine notification
was sent to me, which I dispatched to his forwarding address as usual without
no reply.

After a month, I sent a reminder which I received from the bank without
any reply again. Finally, I discovered from my client's contract employee
that he died among many others on Sept.11, 2001 Terrorist attack.
But,he died without making any will and all attempts to trace his next of
kin was fruitless.I also discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations
in all his official documents, including his fixed deposit contract with
the bank.
Hencefort, I seek your consent to present you to this bank as the next of
kin based on the official letter I just received from his bankers reminding
me that BENINOISE LAW states that at the expiration of five(5) years the
money will revert to the ownership of the BENINOISE Government if I do not
confirm the next of kin to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand
in as the next of kin to my deceased client since you shares the same surname
and also from this same country so that the fruits of thisold man's labor
will not go into the hands of some corrupt government officials.

Note that this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide
expert legal services that will guarantee the successful execution of this
deal. If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible through
phone, I shall provide you with more details and how we shall proceed with
the claims.
I expect you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that
this transaction would be profitable for both of us. Reply me on my private
email address
Thanks as I await for your reply.
Best Regards,
Barr Chito Chimu Esq.
