Dear Friend,

Good day,

I am Mr Mostafa Kaki, the manager,bill and exchange of the foreign remmittance department of a reputable bank here in Cotonou,Benin Republic. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$22.5m dollars ( TWENTY-TWO MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS)in an account that belonging to one of our foreign customer Who died along with his entire family in monday, 31 july, 2000 in a plane crash in paris.Here is the air crash Website below

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after some years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Beninoise cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 45% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account, 5% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to your desiggnited bank account ,you must apply first to the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application that i will send to you,so i will like you to send to me your private telephone and faxnumber for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application . I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately. Please get in touch with me by email to enable us discuss further.

Best regards,
Mr Mostafa kaki
