Hello my friend,

I am Barrister Donald Wilson, English speaking Beninoise, Solicitor and Financial 
Attorney/Consultant. I was moved to contact you based on the present condition of things here. 
There was a foreigner who registered with my Legal firm as his personal Attorney and he was a stock 
broker as well as a one time secret agent for importing oil from overseas for our former Ministers 
and also a construction contractor.

So, on June 2003 my client made a fixed deposit for US$9,500,000.00 (Nine Million, Five Hundred 
Thousand US Dollars Only) in a Bank here in Benin with standing statement/agreement with the bank 
that all correspondence in respect to the fixed deposit contract must be sent to him through my 
humble chambers. Upon maturity, the routine notification was sent to me, which I dispatched to his 
forwarding address as usual without a reply.

After a month, I sent a reminder which I received from the bank without any reply again. Finally, I 
discovered from my client's contract employee that he died with his family in the Benin Republic 
December 26, 2003 plane crash. He died without making any WILL and all attempts to trace his 
relatives were fruitless.

I also discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, 
including his fixed deposit contract with the bank. Hence I seek your consent to present you to 
this bank as the next of kin based on the official letter I just received from his bankers 
reminding me that BENINOISE LAW states that at the expiration of twelve (12) years the money will 
be reverted to the ownership of the BENINOISE Government if I do not confirm the next of kin to 
claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to 
my deceased client since you share the same surname and a foreigner so that the fruits of this old 
man's labor will not go into the hands of some corrupt government officials.

Note that this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide expert legal services 
that will guarantee the successful execution of this deal. If you are interested, please contact me 
as soon as possible through phone, I shall provide you with more details and how we shall proceed 
with the claims. I expect you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this 
transaction would be profitable for both of us. Thanks as I wait for your reply. Kindly reply to my 
secured email account as

Thanks as I wait for your reply.

Best regards,

Hon. Barrister D. Wilson (Esq)

we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.

Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
