Dear Sir, I am Dr Victor Amossou,the director in charge of the Auditing and Accounting section of Diamond Bank Cotonou,Benin Republic,West Africa. During the end of year auditing and accounting I discovered that Mr.Khan Mohammed,a national of your country, A genaral Import and Exporter based in Cotonou,Benin Republic,has an account with our bank which has not been serviced since 2003,which made us to find out that he died on the 25th of December 2003, with his wife And their three children in a Plane Crash of Union Transport Africaies Flight,Boeing 727 in Cotonou Republic of Benin.For more details see: http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/12/26/benin.crash/ And http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/en/doc/2003-12/27/content_293837.htm And also news on BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/3348109.stm Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of his extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet , to locate any member of his family but of no avail, hence I contacted you. I contacted you to assist in repartrating the money left behind by our late customer before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank,the account which valued about 15.6 million dollars(fifteen Million,six hundred thousand United states Dollars). Conseqently,The bank issued a notice the next of kin to come forward for the claim or have the account confiscated within the next ten official working days. since it has not been succesfull in locating the the relatives for over 3 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are from the same country so that the proceeds of this account valued at $15.6 million US dollars can be paid to your account and then you and I can share the money. 60% to me and 30% to you. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Best regard Dr.Victor Amossou N/B, you can Email me at:email@example.com
