 FROM DR MUSA LIMSON.
ACCOUNTING AND AUDITING DEPT MANAGER, 
AFRICA 
DEVELOPMENT BANK-COTONOU,
REPUBLIC OF BENIN.WEST AFRICA.

I am Dr MUSA 
LIMSON the manager of Accounting and Auditing dept at the  
Africa 
development bank-COTONUO, BENIN REPUBLIC.I am writing following 
the 
impressive information about you through an internet business 
proposal.
In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of $18.5 M, Us 
dollars 
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died 
along with his entire family in 26/December/2004 IN THE TSUNAMI 
EARTQUAKE DISASTER. Read the full article 
t:<http://seattlepi.nwsource.

Since we got information about his 
death, we have been expecting his 
next of kin to come over and claim 
his money because we can not release 
it unless somebody applies for it 
as next of kin or relation to the 
decease as indicated in our banking 
guidelines and laws, but unfortunately 
I learnt that allhis supposed 
next of kin or relation died along side with him at the 
plane clash 
leaving no body behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this 
discovery that I decided to make this 
business proposal to you and so 
that the bank will 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 I don't want this money 
to go into the 
bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guideline here 
stipulates that if such money 
remained unclaimed after Five years, the 
money will be transferred into the 
bank treasure as unclaimed fund. 
The request of a foreigner as next of 
kin in this business is 
occasioned by the fact that the customer was a 
foreigner and a 
Beninois cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I agree that 40% 
of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, 
inrespect to the 
provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside 
for expenses 
incurred during the business and 50% will be for me. 
There after I 
will visit your country for disbursement according to the 
percentages 
indicated.

Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to 
you as 
arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next 
or kin of 
the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account, 
your private 
telephone and fax number 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 that this 
business is hicth-free and that you should not entertain any atom of 
fear as allrequired arrangements have been made for the transfer.
 
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully,
Dr Musa Limson
