Dear Sir/Madam, Greetings! My name is Mr. Brannon Robert the Manager Mauritius Commercial Bank Limited. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposal for you. On May 6, 2002, an American Oil consultant contractor with Mauritius Mining Corporation, Mr. Buckhard Anderson made a numbered time of Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months valued at US$20,000,000.00 Twenty Million Dollars in my branch, upon the maturity time of the fund, l sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers from the Island of Mauritius Mining Corporation, that Mr. Buckhard Anderson died in an automobile accident, l found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his relatives or next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Buckhard Anderson did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$20,000,000.00 is in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. Since his death no one has ever come forward to claim this fund. According to the Island of Mauritius Law, at the expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the Island of Mauritius Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreign partner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Buckhard Anderson so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some Government officials. This is simple. I will like you to provide immediately for us your full name, Address, Occupation, Age, Your private telephone and fax numbers respectively through our international lawyer at below address to enable us change some necessary document in your name and file for the claim of this fund as the next of kin. NOTE: Please be inform the reason why we required your assistant is because it forbidden for a government worker to have foreign account in my country and most especially Mr. Buckhard Anderson is a foreigner there is no way a Mauritius CITIZEN will claim next of kin. THESE ARE THE TWO REASONS WHY YOU ARE NEEDED TO ASIST.
