Attention: Sir,
I am PHILIP AMDA, Bank Manager in one of the leading banks of Africa here in Dakar Senegal. I have 
an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. A contract employers- Teaser 
Petroleum Corporation made a numbered time Deposit,US$20,000,000.00 (Twenty Million Dollars) . Upon 
I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month,
we sent a reminder and finally discovered from his contract employers,
That MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich Germany died in a Car crash along with his entire family in 
July 2004 IN Dakar-Senegal.
Since we got this information about his death and on further investigation, we found out that he 
died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigated and discovered that Mr. Andreas Schranner did not declare any 
kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.
The sum of US$20,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank (Bank of Africa) 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 Laws of Senegal, at the expiration of 5 (five) years,
the money will revert to the ownership of the Senegalese Government if nobody applies 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 Mr. Andreas 
Schranner so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt 
government officials. This is simple,

to inherit his deposited fund.
We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain 
the necessary documents and letter of administration in your favour for the transfer. A bank 
account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this 
money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 30% for 
you. The remaining 20% will be for any expenses we might incurred during the course of the 
There is no risk as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my 
position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.

response, I shall then provide you with more details.
