Dear Sir,
I am Dr. Ahmed Farras, Country office Manager  AFRICA DEVELOPMENT 
BANK,DAKAR-SENEGAL.I have urgent and very confidential business proposition

for you.On May 14th, 1999,  Joerome  Patulot, made a numbered 
time(Fixed)Deposit for Twenty Four calendar months, valued at
(Twenty Million,Seven Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in my 
Upon maturity which was suppose to be 14th May 2001, I sent a routine 
notification to his forwarding address but got reply from The ABB 
Construction Corporation that Mr Joerome  Patulot died from Heart Failure.
On further ivestigation, 
I found out that he died without making a "WILL", and all attempts to trace
his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Joerome  
Patulot did not name any next of kin or relations in all his official 
documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of 
US$20,700,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being
rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.
No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Dakar-Senegal 
laws, at the 
expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the
Government if nobody applies 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 Mr.Joerome  Patulot so that the fruits of
this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt 
government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide
immediately your full names and address so that the Attorney will prepare 
the necessary documents and affidavit which will put you in place as the
next-of-kin. We shall employ the service of an Attorney for drafting and
notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter
of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. 
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of
60% for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as all the 
paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney and my position
as a Director,
 guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are
interested, please reply immediately via a return email. 
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant
documents that will help you understand the transaction.

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because 
shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
Awaiting your reply urgently. 

Mr. Ahmed Farras.
