Good Day Sir/Madam,

I'm David Chika Ateli Hoogewoud Chisom,a Banker by profession, I work with Bank here in Republic of Benin,(BANK NAME WITHHELD FOR SECURITY REASON) I have a business proposition which I will gladly want to partner together with you, please read details as unveiled below. In January 2001,a Saudi Arabian Oil Consultant/Contractor (Mr. Hamzar Bouyade) made a numbered-time (fixed deposit) for twenty four calendar months valued at ($25.150 M) TWENTY FIVE MILLION ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND UNITED STATED DOLLARS Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification of Account status to his forwarding address but got no reply up till date.

After two months, we sent a reminder of same letter, and finally we discovered from his contact employers, (Halliburton Oil Services Company)that Mr. Hamzar Bouyade died in a Beirut-bound charter jet Plane Crash on the December 26, 2003. Please view more details about the crash:

This office has exhaustively made efforts to locate the next of kin/beneficiary, or any relative of our deceased customer,all to no avail and not successful.

I have contacted you to assist me in securing this money before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by this bank. The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if such an account remains dormant or non-operational after a period of Six (6) years, the money will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed fund.

However, attempts have been made twice by the Government Agency concerned to confiscate this account if not for my intervention as the head account and audit dept. I have always told them that the next of kin has been in touch with us. The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner.
Your response will determine our subsequent correspondence.

Note that this transaction requires utmost trust and sincerity, get back to me so i can give you more details so we can proceed.

Best regards,

David Chika Ateli Hoogewoud
