Dear Sir / Madam,
My name is Mr.Peter Mons, the Director Mauritius Commercial Bank Limited. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposal for you.
On June 6, 2001, an American Oil consultant contractor with Mauritius Mining Corporation, Mr Charles Anderson made a numbered time of Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$10,000,000.00 Ten Million Dollars in my branch,upon the maturity time of the fund sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers from the Island of Mauritius Mining Corporation, that Mr Charles Anderson died in an automobile accident,l found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his relatives or next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr Charles Anderson did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$10,000,000.00 is still in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. Since his death no one has ever come forward to claim this fund. According to the Island of Mauritius Law, at the expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the Island of Mauritius Government if nobody applies for claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a Foreign partner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr Charles Anderson so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt Government officials. This is simple. I will like you to provide immediately for us your full name, companys name,address,your bank details and your private telephone and fax numbers respectively to enable us change some necessary document in your name and file for the claim of this said fund as the next of kin.
The money will be paid into your account you are going to provide for us. Already the share ratio of 55% is for us the officials here while 35% is for you the account owner, and 10% has been set aside in case of any expenses that may be incurred. This is a free risk deal, as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by us and my position as the branch Director guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately. I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help understand the transaction. Please observe utmost confidentiality and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because l shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.You can e-mail me at
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Thanks and God bless.
Peter Mons.
