Auditing and Accounting Dept,
Eco Bank (EB)
PLEASE KEEP THE CONTENT OF THIS E-MAIL CONFIDENTIAL
Pleasure writing to you at this moment of the day, I am Mr. Fred Anthony, the director incharge of auditing and accounting Dept. of ECO BANK (EB) in Cotonou, Benin Republic. I deem it fit to contact you regarding an inactive/dormant account fund that will benefit both of us at the end, if parties involved will take restrait and maintain absolute secrecy, honesty and integrity. I got your contact in my search for a reputable and reliable person to particularly assist me to claim the fund in question. During auditing, in our bank at the end of last fiscal year, We discovered the sum of (US$18.1M) eighteen million one hundred thousand United States dollars in a dormant account belonging to an international businessman based here in Benin republic who was involved in the December 26th Benin plane crash. I kept this information(secret) confidential within my jurisdiction to enable us submit claims and transfer this fund through trustworthy person whom we shall present to our bank as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased.

My investigations so far clearly reveals that there is no immediate survivor or even a relation to the deceased and as such, there is no immediate next of kin for further claims of the deceased fund as we have long been expecting someone to come forward with an applications. Further information's /verifications from reliable sources too have confirmed that the deceased customer supposed next of kin were all in the plane with him died with him. This fund is now ready for transfer into a foreign account, whose owner will be portrayed to our bank as the beneficiary and a next of kin to the deceased customer. The foreign account owner will impost himself appropriately as the next of kin to the deceased and respond positively like a true next of kin who wishes to speed up the release and transfer process of his inherited fund. Kindly be aware too that if the over-due fund if not claimed by the end of next quarter, the National Treasury and Bills of Benin will take over the ownership of the fund in line with the National Edict Act of 1979. We do not want this to happen as it will not augur to our best interest, having worked all our lives in the banking sector, that is why I contacted you for us to do the deal together with absolute confidence, so that you will be portrayed as the bonafide beneficiary and an immediate next of kin to the deceased. I will give you further directives, advise and all needed information's required for this transaction as soon as I receive your positive response.
Similarly, if you accept to carry out this transaction with me, I have resolved offering to you 40% of the total sum as commission, I will invest my 55% into your firm if you already have one provided that is profit orientated. While 5% of the total fund have been set aside to re-imburse all expenses incurred in this course of this transaction. This transfer will automatically be affected within 7 working days. Be rest assured that with the underground work i have laid so far, that this transaction carries no risk and no extra burdens on your part, except the above mentioned nominal roles you are required to fulfil and similarly will be required to maintain absolute information secrecy throughout the duration of this transaction, because discussing and exhibiting it with a third party might jeopardise the entire transaction. I will give you directives and all needed information as soon as I receive your positive response. Kindly understand that I could not carry out this fund-transfer on my own, based on the simple facts that I'm a civil servants and presently bank staff and this office excludes me from operating foreign accounts, moreover conducting such magnanimous transaction from the same place where I belong to/coming from will raise eyebrows on my side and the truth is that this fund belongs to a foreigner, and as such demands same as next of kin.
I am looking forward to receiving your interesting response on this project as this will greatly enrich the both of us at the end. please you are required to reply this message as a matter of necessity.
