From: Mr.Christopher Kama Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire West - Africa My Dear Friend,I am Mr.Christopher Kama. I work in the Accounts/ Operations Department of a Prime bank here in Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposal for you. I actually got your contact from the Internet and decided to contact you immediately.
On the 30th of July 1998, a Saudi Arabian Oil Consultant/ Contractor with the Societe Ivoirienne De Raffinage (SIR), Mr. Al Saud Bandar, made a one year fixed deposit valued at US$12,000,000.00 (Twelve Million United States Dollars)with my bank.After making the deposit,nobody saw or heard of Mr Al Saud Bandar again till this date. On investigation,it was discovered that Mr. Al Saud Bandar died along with his family in the ill fated Swissair plane crash Sept.2,1998 that killed all 229 passengers on board.
On further investigation,I discovered thatMr.Al Saud Bandar did not leave any WILL and did not declare any Next of Kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work. This sum of US$12,000,000 is still floating in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. For 8 to 9 years now,no one has ever come forward to claim the fund.
According to the Ivoireinne finanacial Laws, at the expiration of 9 (nine) years,the account will be declared unservisable and thereby sent to the government treasury.
That is what gave way to this deal.As the personal accounts manager to Mr Al Saud Bandar,I am seeking your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased,so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money 50:50. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you, as a foreigner to stand in as the Next of Kin to
Mr. Al Saud Bandar. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through.I guarantee that this deal will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please revert to me at your ealiest convinence through this mailbox. Thanking you. Mr.Christopher Kama _________________________________________________________________MSN Messenger: appels gratuits de PC à PC ! http://www.msn.fr/msger/default.asp
