Good Day

I am Dr Mark Ardo, a Business Consultant and a friend to an Independent Foreign Contractor from your Country that died in 2008 whose Surname is the same as yours. The purpose of this email is to seek your assistance and cooperation to retrieve the huge Deposit of $8.7M US Dollars that he left behind in the Bank here in Benin before it will be declared abandoned and confiscated.

The Bank has made it clear to me after several written notifications, that if the money is not claimed by the end of the Bank's financial year, it will be declared abandoned and forfeited to Government treasury. I wanted to commence the process of claim on my own, but the Attorney advised me against it, even though I have the Deposit Certificate for the Funds. He said that the claimant should at least be someone from the same country as the deceased. This is why I am making this proposition to you.

If you accept to work with me to get this money, please write me back urgently for more details.

kindly state the following:

a)Your full names..........
b)Your address...........
c)Your occupation...........
d)Mobile telephone number..........
e)Your age/sex...........
f)Your marital status..........

Regards,

Dr Mark Ardo Cotonou, Benin.
