Attn:Sir, I am writing this mail to you from my residence because of how confidenti= al it is, this letter contains some confidential materials and should be delete= d from your mail box if you are unable to help me out concerning the proposal. I= am the director of international remittance in a bank here in Cotonou Benin. I a= nd my colleagues have an amount of 22million dollars belonging to Gen Robert Gu= ei who was shot dead together with all his family last September by the Governme= nt soldiers here on an accusation of plotting a failed coup de etat. This money was 58 million dollars but some have been used in the importat= ion of arms by the General until he met the unexpected death. He deposited this = money in Cotonou Benin because of his bilateral relationship with Benin. I have= all the necessary documents involved in the deposition and the withdrawal of = the part of the money and the next of kin was his personal security guard who= also met his untimely death. Now I want you to stand as the next of kin and help us transfer this amou= nt of money out from here.This business is 100% risk free and I will prepare al= l the documentation and prove the source of the fund before the transfer. I wan= t you to know that this business involves I and 2 top officials in our Bank and= must not be taken as a joke, I advice you to think very well before responding because we need a very strong hand in this transaction. Your percentage and other important details will be discussed once I conf= irm your kind willingness in helping to the transfer. Please do get back to me via this email: email@example.com. I await your postive response. My regards, Mr.Martins Dacosta.
