With all due respect to your personality, I request
that you do not feel disturbed as I know that business
of this magnitude will surely make one apprehensive. 

I write to solicit your utmost confidence, knowing too
well that we have neither known nor met each other
before, but because you and the late Mr.Williams Lewis
MAYBE from the same country. Having searched through
the internet,from where I got your email address, I
hereby request that you become the Next of Kin to the
late customer of our bank, Late Mr. William Lewis, who
died in West Africa here and abandoned a fixed deposit
of Eight Million, Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars (USD $ 8.500.000.00), without a specified next
of kin to inherit the deposit at the time of his
death.(Maybe he did this because of the fact that he
was into crude oil deals called)"Oil bunckering" here
in west Africa. 

My name is Lamine Watara. I am an accountant and the
accounting officer to the William Lewis in the Banque
Internationale pour l'Afrique au Togo. In the
financial Laws of the Federal Republic of Togo, the
holding bank is required to repatriate any abandoned
fund by a foreigner if nobody comes to claim the said
funds after three (3) years of the confirmation of the
death of the depositor. 

For the past three years, all the effort of our
Customer Service Department to trace any relative of
the Late Mr. William Lewis has proved abortive. I do
not want this funds to go into the hands of our
corrupt government officials, who have embezzled our
national funds all these years. 

My interest in this abandoned deposit is as follows: 

(1) To see that this abandoned deposit is not handed
over to the corrupt government officials of our recent
President F.Eyadémà. 

(2) To make you the Next of Kin to the late Mr.
William Lewis and whom he has willed the said deposit
before his death. 

(3) To ensure that the deposited funds is transferred
to you as your INHERITANCE. 

(4) To ensure that my own share of it is invested
wisely in your country in any viable area of

Bear in mind that the entire transaction will be risk
- free involvement from your side and legitimate since
the funds will be coming to you as your INHERITANCE.
If this proposition is acceptable by you, respond to
me ASAP but if not acceptable by you, do not take
advantage of it to betray me. 

Remember that doing business over the Internet could
sometimes be unconfidential. If acceptable by you,
send me your private telephone and fax numbers for me
to call you for detailed discussion. 

God bless.

(Accountant, BIA,LOME-TOGO).
