FROM DR SAMUEL ODONGO ROYAL FINANCE AND TRUST BANK, RUE CLUB DE FIFADJI, 1551 B.P. 00235 COTONOU, BENIN REPUBLIC. TEL +229-97312310 Compliments Of The Day, Permit me to introduce myself to you. My name is Dr. Samuel Odongo a top Management Official of the above Finance Corporation in Cotonou,Benin Republic I came to know about you in my private search for a reliable person/company to handle an important assingment on behalf of my Colleagues and myself. PROPOSITION: An Australian Engr MICHEAL ALLEN, a prosperous oil\Gold merchant had in our Bank the sum of $48.5million in a domiciliary account.Unfortunately, he was involved in a ghastly motor accident in Benin Republic,which lead to his untimely demise in June 2003. Efforts had been made by the management of my bank through the Australian Embassy to contact any of the deceased children but to no avail. We later discovered that he had no children.Given the skeletal information available to the bank, it has so far been impossible to reach any of the relatives. The situation left for the Management is to declare the deceased account dormant and revert the funds to trading for interest to the Bank. In order to avoid this development, my Colleagues and I now seek your approval to have you stand as a distant relative to Engr MICHEAL ALLEN,so that the money would be released to you.All documents and proofs to enable you get the money will be carefully packaged once we receive your consent on this proposal.I shall apply for a leave as soon as the funds get into your reliable account to come to your country for sharing and investments which you will assist me in doing. May I assure you that this is safe and risk-free, as we have taken care of all necessary steps to ensure a hitch-free movement. I have the authority of my partners involved in this assignment to propose that should you be willing to assist us in this, your share would be 30 %.I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me. As soon as I hear from you I will send to you all the evidence and proof. Best Regards, Dr. SAMUEL ODONGO
