Dear Friend, I am Mr.Ibrahim Hamza, i work with a finance company here in Dakar Senegal .One of our clients, DR. ROBERT DIMITRIS, who was before his death, was an adviser to the Organisation of Petroleum Export Country (OPEC), had over fifty Million pounds lodged with us. On his death five years ago, his heir (his wife) put a claim for his money and my company paid off in line with her request. However,his wife did not know that the facts of Nine million, eight hundred thousand British Pounds (GBP9.8 Million)paid in by DR. ROBERT DIMITRIS in a different account and the money is still lying with us. I therefore made further investigations and discovered that DR. ROBERT DIMITRIS did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank deposit paperwork in our finance company.This sum of GBP9.8 million is still in our finance company but i have succeded in transffering it into a finance firm in eroupe ,and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one has and will ever come forward to claim it. According to Ecowas law, at the expiration of 7 (seven) years, The money will revert to the ownership of the Seneglees Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Based on my position in this finance company , I have kept the facts of this case and a few others I am still watching closely to myself alone.The reason I have decided to contact you is because I am quite certain I can move these funds into your acconut Immediately i see that you are interested in this business i will give you the contact of the finance company in eroupe so that you will put in claim for the money but would need your assistance. What this requires is that you put in an application with a letter of probate, which I will forward to you. This will enable the finance firm to open a premium account with the finance firm and I will make an internal database transfer of the Funds to your account. Once this is done and you will see the money in your account, to have your money.However, due to the fact that the finance firm do not entertain your request to open an account without a proof of the fund origin, I have without divulging secured the copy of the deposit document of the said fund and will forward it to you when I have your interest in my proposal. On grounds that you agree to do this with me, the money will be shared in the ratio of 50% for me and 40% for you. However 10% mapped out incase of done before or after this transaction, it is quite necessary that these are kept as confidential as possible for its successive completion within days. Please contact me and I will tell you what to do there. Once I hear from you,I will give the contact of DR.ROBERT DIMITRIS lawyer here in senegal so that you can contact him and for his account details and you can check his account statement via the finance company’s online services to certify what am saying. Please reply through my email request. I will be expecting your reply. Sincerely, Mr. Ibrahim Hamza you can contact with this
