Dear Sir, The inspiration to contact you is simply divine providence, I am making this proposition because I have to seek the partnership of a resource person to help me realize this project. Barrister ROBERT PETERS , esq. a solicitor and investment consultant based in COTONOU, ,BENIN REPUBLIC I was attending a business luncheon in Berlin, Germany and I got introduced to the renowned German businessman and property mogul, Mr. Andreas Schranner (of the blessed memory). He engaged my services as attorney and investment consultant and my primary assignment was to spearhead his investment forays in BENIN REPUBLIC, Three months later I invited him to COTONOU and under my professional guidance and based on my advice he made a deposit of $20,000,000.00(TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS) at SECURITY COMPANY HERE IN COTONOU . This deposit was for 2years and upon maturity I made effort to contact my client, I could not reach him or any member of his family. I was forced to travel to Germany and there I got the tragic news that on July 25 2000, my client Mr. Andreas schranner, his wife Maria, and their two children perished in the air France Concorde new York bound flight; Please Click here and find out what happened to the family http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm I have made efforts to locate any member of his family since then with strong biological links to my late client without success. The search to find a close relation is one that has consumed time and resources. The institution is asking me to either present a next of kin to late Mr. Andreas Schranner or forfeit the deposit. My proposal is to package, present you as next of kin to late Mr. Andreas Schranner and process the deposit and the consignment containing $20,000,000.00 will be paid to you as the next of kin to my client for our interest. My capacity as solicitor/investment consultant to my late client gives me the discretion to package and make sure this fund is paid to you as the next of kin to my client.Therefore you will be required to come down to cotonou for face to face delibration and then we can proceed to the security company for immediate hand over of the consignment to you as the benficiary,As soon as payment has been made,both of us can travel back to your country for sharing and investment purposes. Moreover I will give you 40% for your effort, 60% for me it will amount to injustice if I do not take this decisive step to secure this deposit, and invest it. The late schranner was also a friend in addition to our business relationship. I will wait for your reaction and response and then together we can jumpstart this project and nurture it to reality. --------------------- i await your respond BARRISTER ROBERT PETER
