Dear Friend,

My name is Mr.Benny 
Williams, the Manager Mauritius Commercial Bank Limited. I have an 
urgent and very confidential business proposal for you.

On June 6, 
2001, an American Oil consultant contractor with Mauritius Mining 
Corporation, Mr Charles Anderson made a numbered time of Fixed Deposit 
for twelve calendar months valued at US$10,000,000.00 Ten Million 
Dollars in my branch,upon the maturity time of the fund,l sent a 
routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After 
a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract 
employers from the Island of Mauritius Mining Corporation, that Mr 
Charles Anderson died in an automobile accident,l found out that he 
died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his relatives or 
next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and 
discovered that  Mr Charles Anderson did not declare any next of kin or 
relations in all his official documents including his Bank Deposit 
paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$10,000,000.00 is still in my Bank 
and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end 
of each year. Since his death no one has ever come forward to claim 
this fund. According to the Island of Mauritius Law, at the expiration 
of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the Island of Mauritius 
Government if nobody applies for claim the fund.

Consequently, my 
proposal is that I will like you as a Foreign partner to stand in as 
the next of kin to Mr Charles Anderson 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  for 
us Your full name, Address, Occupation, Age, Your private telephone and 
fax numbers respectively to enable us change some necessary document in 
your name and file for the claim of this said fund as the next of kin. 

The money will be paid into your account you are going to provide for 
us.Already the share ratio of 60% is for us the officials here while 
30% is for you the account owner,and 10% has been set aside in-case of 
any expenses that may be incurred.This is a free risk deal, as all the 
paperwork for this transaction will be done by us and my position as 
the branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this 
transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately. I shall 
then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will 
help you understand the

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

Thanks and God bless. Awaiting your 
urgent reply.

Warm Regards,

Mr.Benny Williams.
