Foreign Remittance Department Manager
Abidjan Cote D Ivoire.
I am the Manager of Bill and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance
Department of Banque Atlantique here in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire. In my
department I discovered an abandoned sum of US$14 Million dollars
(Fourteen Million Dollars) in an account that belongs to one Of our foreign
Customer, Mr. Bature Ddaine, a Lebanese investor in Abidjan, Republic of
Cote D Ivoire who died along with his family were among the plane crash
victims of Boeing727-type, Air plane of African Transport Union (UTA)
crashed on 25th December 2003 at the Fidjrosse beach Cotonou Republic
of Benin. 110 persons died, the Beirut-bound flight victims are mostly
Lebanese nationals and few westerners. Over 40 others still reported
missing as at then, while 22 passengers survived.
Here is the air crash website=
Since we got information about his death we have been expecting his Next
of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it
Unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the Deceased
as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt
that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the
plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim
The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money Remained
Unclaimed after six years, the money will be transferred into the bank
treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this
transfer is unquestionable by the fact that the customer was a Foreigner
and an Ivorian cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I seek your consent to present you as Next of kin to the deceased so that
the left over fund could be remitted to your account as his Next of Kin, I
will move to your country and then we can share the amount on a mutually
I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is hitch-free and that
you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required Arrangements
have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as
soon as you receive this letter.
With best regards,
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
