Dear Trusted Friend.
I am Mr. Analechi E. William Head of Files And Record in the Bank Of Africa (BOA). I am writing to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $5,500, 000.00 (Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars) into your accounts.
This fund belongs to late Mr. Michael Colon a Lebanese business magnate and property consultant here in Benin Republic. The late Mr. Michael Colon died in a plane crash alongside with his wife and only daughter and since then the fund has been in a
suspense account and no one has ever come for the fund.
After my further investigation, I discovered that late Mr. Michael Colon died with his next of kin which is his only daughter and the laws guiding our bank stated that after the expiration of (3) Three years, if nobody comes for the claim as the next
of kin, the fund will be channel into bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
Because of the static of this transaction I want you to stand as the next of kin. Our bank will transfer this fund into your stated account if you follow the information I will give you.
I have decided the sharing as following: 40% for you 50% for me 10% for any expenses that may come out during the transfer. The transfer is risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction till the fund transfer to your account.
More details information will be forwarded to you immediately you reply my mail.
Mr. Analechi E. William
