I am Dennis Platt an Auditor of a Bank here in the Benin Republic, in the the process of auditing our bank accounts I and one of my colleagues discovered that there is a dormant account valued at the sum $15,000,000.00 (Fifteen million united states Dollars) and after due verification of this account we discovered that the account owner died On the 25th of July 2000, the deceased, his wife and their two Children died in the Air France concord plane crash bound for New York in their plan for a world cruise. Below is the website you can check if need be. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479. stm The idea of presenting somebody who is not related to our deceased customer to act as his next of kin came into our mind, that is how and why we have contacted you to present you as his next of kin , so that the $15,000.000.00 will be paid to you and we can both disburse the fund according to the percentage we will agree on. In view of this, I am seeking for your co-operation and understanding to stand as the next of kin to our deceased customer, to enable us claim the fund from my bank.
