Dear Sir, FOR URGENT TRANSFER OF FUND ABROAD. In order to transer the sum of (19,500,000.00) overseas. I have the courage to ask for your assistance. I am Mr. Mohamed Judih Ibrahim,Manager of Opeartion (B.O.A) Cotonou,Republic of Benin. There is an account opened in this bank in 1994.After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that nobody has operated on this account since year 2000 uptill this year.
With due respect trust and humanity, I am contacting you because of the need to involve a reliable foreign beneficiary with foreign account who will coordinate this motive. In the meeting held recently by our Board of Directors in our bank,it was deliberated on the issue of unclaimed funds lying in our bank,but therefore decided to adjourn the motion as contained in the article 13 (b) sub-section (iv) of the minutes of the BODs meeting. I need your full co-operation to make this object successful because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has the correct information of this account which I will give to you immediately if you are capable and willing to handle such amount with confidence and trust according to my instructions and advise for our mutual benefit because this is a life time opportunity I do not want to miss. I need a truthful person in this business because I do not want to make a mistake,besides I need your strong assurance, trust and sincerity. I have to assure you that with my position now in the office I can transfer this money to any reliable foreign account which you can provide with full assurance that this money will be safe and well guided pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing. I will destroy all document of transaction in my office immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place. I will use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance forms of the ministries and foreign exchange departments. You can also come to Cotonou, Benin to discuss with me face to face after which I will make the remittance in your presence and two of us will fly to your country for withdrawal,sharing and other investment plans. Reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take towards realizing this fund immediately. Send also your private telephone and fax numbers.
