    INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA
    16 RUE DE COMMERCE
    BENIN REPUBLIQUE..

    Dear Sir;

    I am Mr.Temple Johnson, the manager of bills and exchanges at the foreign remittance Department of INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA BENIN REPUBLIQUE. I am writing following the information about you through International web directory and wish I know you are capable and reliable person to champion this business opportunity.

    In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of USD 18.5 m ,(Eighteen million,five hundred thousand United State dollars). in an alloted vault in the bank, that belongs to one of our foreign customer William Chiew who died along with his wife and only daughter in?30Th July, 2003 In Auto Crash Accident Along Ghana-BurkinaFasso Express Road.

    Since we got informations about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claims his money because we cannot release it unless somebody apply for it as next of kin or relation to the died customer as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his surpposed next-of-kin or relation died along side with him at the Auto crash leaving no body behind for the claim.

    It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in our institution now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the safe-box containing money to you as the next-of-kin or relation to the died customer for safety and subsequent disbursement, since no body is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury unclaimed.

    The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money/deposit remained unclaimed after five to six years, the money/deposit will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner as next-of-kin in this business is occassioned by the act that the customer was a foreigner and a Beninois can not stand as next-of-kin to a foreigner.

    We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incured during this business and 60 % would be for me and my colleagues. Thereafter I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as been arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next-of-kin of the died customer.

    Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or e-mail, the text of the application you will transcribe as your order and send to the bank. I will not fail to bring to your notice that 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

    Please Reply Urgently,
    Yours Sincerely,
    Temple Johnson

    You be the judge!

    Received another mail today that goes like this:

    Dear,

    I duly apologize for infringing on your privacy, if this contact is not acceptable to you as I make this proposals a person of integrity.
    After due deliberation with my children, we decided to contact you for your needed assistance to secure a family treasure. First, let me start by introducing myself, I am Mrs. Aminat Hasan, a mother of three children. My husband was a social worker who worked in the united nations outpost in Southern Lebanon but he was killed in the cross fire between the Israeli and Hezebollah war that ended few weeks ago.

    You must have heard over the media reports and on the Internet the War against my country Lebanon. Many innocent civilians are dead and thousands are injured while millions are homeless as they bombarded our country. Most of our infrastructures are now in shambles as a result of their deadly bombardment of Lebanon. Even though the cease fire is now imposed between the Israeli and Hezbollah but the situation is still fragile.

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/...ain/index.html
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/5217176.stm

    I can give you the general overview of the situation. On the 26th day of July, Israeli war planes bombed the United Nations outpost and killed four United nations workers and reduced the whole observer outpost to rumbles. As a social worker,my husband was among the few that were sent to the crumbled out posts to assist in the rescue operations. As the rescue was going on,he with a colegue, a fellow worker discovered a trunk box in the heaps of the debris and according to him, when they opened it, 'wow!' it contains neatly packed bundles of united states dollars in cash. As they made a rough and hasty counting of the money, they came up with the figure $19.5million US dollars.

    To cut the whole storey short,my husband and his colegue took the trunk box that contained the funds and hide it in one of the refugees camp here in Lebanon but they later they shipped it to our neighbouring country Cyprus and deposited it with a local security company and it is still in their vaults till date. It is sad to say that my husband and his colleges did not live to enjoy the fruit of their fortune because, their truck was caught in a cross fire while on duty just few days before the cease fire agreement was reached between the waring factions.May their souls rest in peace.

    The reason why I am contacting you is for you to assist me to invest this huge money in your country because I still posses the documents regarding the funds deposit which was made in my husbands name. I also have the picture of the cash money as he took the picture before they shipped the funds and got it deposited in Cyprus, our neighbouring country.

    As I am not a business women and again the situation in our country is hell and it is not safe to keep or invest the fund in a war turn zone like Lebanon,your assistance is needed to clear this fund out of the Security for subsequent investment.
    If you are interested to work with me, we can set up a business partnership with you in your country and it is my wish to invest in property and real estate investment. I will compensate you for your role in this venture and if you are interested, I will inform you my arrangements on how I intend to send the money to you in your country for safe keeping and investment.
    For your assistance, my family will offer you 20% of the total sum. If you are interested pls reply me so that we can plan on how to proceed but if you are not interested feel free to decline this offer as it is not mandatory.

    Thanks and regards,


    Aminat.
