Attention Please, 
Dear Sir 
I am Mr. Akofa Gomez, Principal treasury officer with (AFREXIMBANK) African Export-Import Bank of 
Benin . I have decided to contact you through this medium based on a business proposal, which will 
be of mutual benefit to both of us. 
Mr. ARTHUR  , made a numbered time (Fixed) deposited for twelve calendar months, valued at 
US$10,450,000.00 (Ten Million Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand States Dollars) in my branch. Upon 
maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. 
After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, Benin Oil 
Corporation Limited that the deceased person died from an automobile accident. On further 
investigation, I found out that he did not leave a will and all attempts to trace his next of kin 
were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that  the deceased person  
did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit 
This sum of (US$ 10,450,000.00) is still sitting in the Bank and the interest is rolled over with 
the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it. According to the 
Republique du Benin Law, at the expiration of 5{Five} years, the money will revert to the ownership 
of the Benin Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. 
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to 
deceased person  ,  so that this money will not be reverted by the government. 
If this request matches with your inward intention for success and greatness, then you are urged to 
make a quick response indicating your interest and readiness to participate and work with me to 
make this successful. You can contact me on the above phone number for oral conversation on better 
understanding regarding this deal. 
Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most 
profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to my share in your country. 
In your return mail, please do forward me your following information if you are willing to complete 
this deal with me, enabling me put the total fund in your name for claim as the next of kin to the 
deceased person: 
Your Full Name: 
Your Contact Address: 
Your Phone Number: 
Your Age: 
Awaiting your urgent reply. 
Thanks and regards, 
Dr. Gomez Akofa.
