Dear Friend,

I am MR Hasan Ahmed, the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department african develoment bank annex Cotonou Republic Of Benin.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$20.5M (twenty million five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his family in the December 25th Benin plane crash. Here is the air crash website on cnn

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guide lines and lawsbut unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after four years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Benin cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as respect to the provision of a foreign account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% be for me.Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be transfer.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this mail

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully.

MR Hasan Ahmed
