I am Dr. David Kuku the Auditor in charge of Foreign Remittance
Department of a Bank in the Commercial city of
Cotonou, Benin Republic.
This is a very confidential proposition for you. On July 21st 2003,an
Importer of Textiles and Automobiles for the
past Thirteen years made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve
calendar months, valued at ten million seven
hundred thousand United States Dollars (US$10.7musd) in my branch.
Upon maturity on July 20th 2004 as his Credit Officer, I sent a
routine notification to his forwarding address but
got no reply.
After a month, we sent a reminder and finally I discovered from his
employees, that Client was one of the passengers
who died with his entire family in the ill-fated plane crash involving
a UTA Boeing 727 Chartered Flight that took
off from Cotonou Benin Republic and crashed into Atlantic Ocean on
Thursday 25th December 2003.
For further details of the Plane Crash, Please Visit
investigations, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
Again, I made further investigation and discovered that the Client did
not declare any next of kin or relations in
all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work in my Bank.
This sum of ten million seven hundred thousand United States Dollars
(US$10.7 million USD) is still sitting in my
Bank no one will ever come forward to claim it.
According to the International Banking ethics, codes and Laws, at the
expiration of ten (10) years, the money will
revert to the ownership of the Benin Government if nobody applies to
claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to
stand in as the next of kin to the deceased.
This is simple, I will like you to respond immediately with your full
names and contact information so as I will
send to you a specimen copy of an application form which you will
refill and send to the bank putting claim over the
said balance with the bank as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased.
The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio
of 50% for me and 40% for you, while 5% will
be set aside for any expenses that may arise in the process of
transferring this fund into your chosen/nominated
bank account you wish to receive it, and 5% to the motherless and the
needy in your country.
Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and
Please send to me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy
communication, oral discussion and more
directives on what next to do.
You should observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that
this transaction would be most profitable for
both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share
in your country which you will be the arrow
head of the investment.
I must not fail to tell you that this transaction is totally risk free
and legitimate as far as you can follow up
with my instructions and directives as an insider here in the bank,
so, don' t have any fear in you about the
I Await your urgent reply.
Thanks and God bless.
Dr. David Kuku.
