Good day!
I am Dr. John Clark, director of the auditing and accounting department "Bank of Africa” (B.O.A) 
Porte Novo, Benin Republic.
I discovered the sum of Seven Million, Two Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD7.2Million) belonging to a 
deceased customer of this bank. the fund has been lying in a suspended account without anybody 
coming to put claim over the money since the account owner is late , Mr. Salla Khat from Lebanese 
who was involved in the December 28th 2005 Benin car crash.
It is therefore, upon this discovery that I decided to take this ultimatum and make this business 
proposal to you as the fund will be release to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased 
for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to 
go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking rules here stipulate that if such money 
remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as 
unclaimed fund. The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the 
fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Benin Republic cannot stand as next of kin to 
a foreigner.
Therefore, I solicit for your assistance to come forward as the next of kin. I have agreed that 40% 
of this money will be for you as the beneficiary respect of the provision of your account and 
service rendered, 60% will be for me then if the money transferred to your account from this bank, 
I will proceed immediately to your country for the sharing of the funds.
Yours faithfully,

Dr. John Clark.
