Department Of BANK OF BANESTO (BANCO BANESTO)Madrid,Spain. I got your
contact information when seaching for an honest and trust worthy
person,who will assist me to achieve this transfer fund.

l discovered the sum of four Million Five Hundred Thousand Euros
belonging to our deceased customer Mr.John Korovo.The fund has been
lying in a Dormant account without anybody coming to put claim over the
money since the account owner late Mr John Korovo from Jordan died
 along with his entire family December 25th 2003 Benin plane crash.
(Here is the air crash website

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
next of kin to come over and claim his money but unfortunately we
 learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him
 at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is upon the
