Calvary Greetings,
I am Mr.Paul Smith Audit Manager Bank of Africa Benin. in the capital city of
cotonou Benin republic, and assittance, This is a very confidential proposition
for you. On April 21st 1999, A Swedish Oil consultant/contractor with the
Benenoise Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr.Soren Andersson made a numbered time
(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$8,000,000.00 (Eight
Million Dollars only)in my branch.Upon maturity on November 20th 2003 as his
Credit Officer, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got
no reply.
After a month, we sent a reminder and finally i discovered from his contract
employers, the Benenoise Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr.Soren Anderson died
on auto accident with his entire family.Further investigations,and all attempts
to trace his next of kin was fruitless. Again,I made further investigation and
discovered that Mr.Soren Andersson did not declare any kin or relations in all
his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.
This sum of US$8,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank No one will ever come
forward to claim it.According to the International Bankingethics,codesand Laws,
at the expiration of 7(Two) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the
Benin 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.Soren. This is simple, I will like you to respond immediately with your full
names and address so that we will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits
that will put you in place as the next of kin.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 70% for
me and some of my colleagues who are aware of this transaction and 25% for you
and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction There is no risk
at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by my colleagues
and with my position as the Foreign Remmitance Director guarantees the
successful execution of this transaction.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant
documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send me
your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. You should
observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would
be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to
invest my share in your country.
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Remain Bless.
Mr.Paul Smith
