Barrister Dave Sankho (Esq.)
5-9 Constitution Crescent Avenue

Attention: President/CEO

I am Barrister Dave Sankho (Esq.), a Senegalese Solicitor & Financial Attorney/Consultant. I was 
the personal attorney to late Daniel Francis who died among many others in the Kenya Airways flight 
of 31st January, 2000 that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean in Abidjan, Cote DíIvoire. Before his 
death, he was an expatriate mining consultant. Mr. Daniel Francis here-in-after referred as my 
client was also a category "A" contractor for Senegalese National Petroleum Corporation .

Mr.Daniel Francis satisfactorily executed some contracts for Senegalese National Petroleum
Corporation and the sum of Ten million, five hundred thousand United States of American Dollars is 
an outstanding debt owe to him for years by the Corporation. Unfortunately, it is after his death 
that Contract Award & Supervisory Committee of the Petroleum Corporation approved his payment and 
sent notification to my chambers in accordance with my client's instructions-that any 
correspondence in respect to his dealings with the Petroleum Corporation must go through my 
chambers. The Petroleum Corporation has consequently asked me to contact his next of kin
to claim his outstanding contract fee owe to him.
All attempts to trace his next of kin(s) were fruitless. I also discovered that Mr.Daniel Francis
did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents.

I am contacting you based on that official letter I received from the Petroleum Corporation which 
also informs that Senegalese law states that at the expiration of 5(five) years the money will 
revert to the ownership of the Senegalese Government if I do not confirm the next of kin to claim 
the fund.Search in the internet with his name to trace his relations was without success. 
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to 
Mr. Daniel Francis so that the fruits of this old manís labour will not go into the hands of 
corrupt government officials who will share the money if not claimed.

Note that this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide expert legal
services/documentations that will guarantee and authenticate you as the true next of kin. I wish to 
point out that after the claims, I would want 20% of this money to be shared among some charity 
organizations, while the remaining 80% is shared equally between us. Most importantly, I would also 
require your assistance towards investing my share in your country or anywhere as you may advice. 
If you are interested, please contact me immediately with your full name/address, telephone/fax 
numbers and photograph page of your international passport or driver's licence. Upon your response, 
I shall provide you with more details and how we shall proceed with
this claims. I expect you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this
transaction would be profitable for both of us.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Thanks & Regards,
