Dear Friend, I am a credit officer of a trust and financial company here in Cotonou Benin Republic. I believe you will not betrayed me with the trust I intend putting on you. A foreigner, Engr.MAHMUD ALI IBRAHIM (snr) an iron steel company chairman with the Federal Government here in Benin Republic until his death some years ago in an Auto crash deposited with us US$14,000,000(Fourteen million United States Dollars). The company now expects a next of kin as beneficiary of this money since the depositor is dead. Valuable efforts has been made by our company to get in touch with any of Mahmud Ali's relatives but to no avail. Because of the inability to locate any of his next of kin, the management under the influence of our chairman and members of the board of directors, have made arrangements for the fund to be declared unclaimed and subsequently be used to import ammunitions into our country. However, In order to avert this negative development, some of my trusted colleagues and myself now seek your permission to declare you as his next of kin so that this fund will be released and transferred into your account as the next of kin. This deal is risk free because all documents and proofs to enable you get this fund has been carefully worked out. We would furnish you with the necessary disbursement ratio to suite both parties on your reply to this mail, do not hesitate to contact me through my private e-mail : email@example.com Looking forward to your urgent response. Regards, Gabriel Sossou. -- This message has been scanned for viruses and dangerous content by MailScanner, and is believed to be clean.
