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=
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 =
in Cotonou Benin because of his bilateral relationship with Benin. I have=
the necessary documents involved in the deposition and the withdrawal of =
part of the money and the next of kin was his personal security guard who=
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=
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=
your kind willingness in helping to the transfer.

Please do get back to me via this email:

I await your postive response.

My regards,

Mr.Martins Dacosta.
