Calvary Greetings,

I am Mr. George Adams Audit Manager BONDBANK of AFRICA BENIN . In the capital
city of Cotonou Benin republic, and assistance, this is a very confidential
proposition for you. On April 21st 1999, A Swedish Oil consultant/contractor
with the Benenoise Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr.Soren Anderson made a
numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at
US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million Dollars only) in my branch. Upon maturity on
November 20th 2003 as his Credit Officer, I sent a routine notification to his
forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and
finally I discovered from his contract employers, the Benenoise Solid Minerals
Corporation said that Mr.Soren Anderson died on auto accident with his entire

Further investigations and all attempts to trace his next of kin were
fruitless. Again, I made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Soren
Anderson did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,
including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$18,000,000.00
is still sitting in my Bank No one will ever come forward to claim it.
According to the International Banking ethics, codes and Laws, at the
expiration of 7(Two) 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 as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Soren. This is simple, I will like you to respond immediately with your full names and
address so that we will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that
will put you in place as the next of kin.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 70%

you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction There is no
risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by my
