I am Mr.Amhed Koffi Bill and exchange of the foreign remittance
department, Continental Bank Benin Republic, with due respect and
regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that
will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.
During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came
across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased customer Mr.
Andreas Schranner of Munich-Germany who died on Monday, 31st
July, 2000 as you can go through the website
Since his untimely death the fund has been dormant in his account with
this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his
family or relation before our discovery to this development. Although
personally, I kept this information’s secret within myself and partners
to enable the whole plans and idea be Profitable and successful during
the time of execution.
The said amount was U.S $9.8M (Nine million eight hundred United States
dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive
information through my good friend who works with chamber of commerce
on foreign business relations here in Benin Republic, It is him who
recommended your person to me to be viable and capable to champion a
business of such magnitude without any problem.
Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the
bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and
transfer this money to an overseas account has been put in place and
directives. All the needed information's will be relayed to you as soon
as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also
benefit yourself to this great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in
this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a
foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side
during the time of transfer because I work in this bank.
This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow
who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank and also present
a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred
into, on his request as it may be after due verification and
clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole
money will be remitted from to your own designated bank account.
May i at this point emphasize that this transaction is 100% legitimate
and risk free as i have made arrangements for a successful arrangement
as an insider of the bank before contacting you. On smooth conclusion
of this transaction, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sum as
gratification,5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may
arise during the time of transfer, while 60% will be for me and my
Please you have been advised to keep this transaction a top secret as
we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we
conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you
confirm the money in your account and ask us to come down to your
country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages
previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or
any country you will advice us to invest in.
All other necessary information will be sent to you on your acceptance to champion this transaction with us.
I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible on my personal mobile phone +229 98 32 5872 stating your wish in this deal.
Mr Amhed Koffi
