From: Mr. Mitchell Ponton,
La Premiиre Banque Du Bйnin,
C/54 Carrefour Porto-Novo- 011 BP 5943,
Porto-Novo, Bйnin Republic.
I sincerely write to solicit your co-operation and trust in an urgent business
transaction. I work with La Premiиre Banque Du Bйnin Plc (translated as:
First Bank of Bйnin Plc) in Porto-Novo, Bйnin republic. Presently, i am in
charge of bills and exchange in the international remittance department. I was
the account's officer of a certain Mr. and Mrs. Jobe W. Ryder, who worked
with Chevron Oil company, but both died in the December 25, 2003 air crash here
in Bйnin Republic.
PLEASE, VISIT THE FOLLOWING LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Mr. Ryder had a total sum of $5.32 million (Five million, Three hundred and
Twenty thousand US Dollars) in his domiciliary account. Since the management
got the news of his tragic death, we have been expecting his next of kin to
come up and claim his/her inheritance funds. Unfortunately, from the day of his
death till the time of this letter, nobody has shown up. As his personal
account's officer, i decided to search through his classified record files
and i discovered that the only next of kin he specified was his wife, who died
along with him in the Christmas Day crash.
The banking and financial law of inheritance of La Premiиre Banque Du Bйnin,
stipulates that if such funds remain unclaimed after a period of (60) months,
it will be lost to the bank as "unclaimed deposit". On that note, I
would like to do business with you so that the money can be released to you as
a next of kin of the deceased for subsequent disbursement between us. I will
soon proceed on retirement, and i personally do not want the funds to be lost
to the bank.
The need for a foreigner as a next of kin in this project is necessitated by
the fact that the deceased was a foreigner and a Bйninese/bйninois will not
perfectly fit in as his next of kin or heir. That is why i am contacting you. I
found your email address through random internet searches. Please, note that it
does not really matter whether you are truly related to the deceased or not,
because there is never going to be any background check or investigation
whatsoever. Consider that, a top secret from an insider. Also, note that you
are not to appear in person and as such, there is absolutely no risk involved.
Upon my receipt of your email indicating your interest and full assurance that
you will peacefully let me have my own share of the money after it must have
been wired to your bank account, i will email you with a copy of the next of
kin application form and the deceased's bank account information. You would
need to correctly fill out the application form and send it via email attachment
to the international remittance director of the bank for onward processing,
approval and transfer of the funds to your bank account.
If you feel uneasy giving out your private bank account information, you may
open a new bank account solely for the purpose of this transaction. As soon as
the funds are wired to your bank account, i will visit you in your country to
collect my share. I am willing to let you have 35% of the total funds, as a
foreign partner. Please, let me have your cell phone number for direct
communication. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.
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....
