Dr. Will Mave Auditing and Accounting Unit Foreign Operations
Department African Development Bank, Lome-Togo Branch Republic of Togo.
Dear Sir, I am Dr. Will Mave the Director in charge of Auditing and
Accounting section African Development Bank,lome-togo and also Chairman
of Investigating and Auditing Department of this Bank. With due respect
and regard, I have decided to contact you on a Business Transaction
that will be very beneficial to both of us and our families at the end
of this transaction.During our Investigation and Auditing in this Bank,
my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to one
Deceased who died on October 24, 2005 Martinsville plane crash Aircraft
type Beechcraft King Air 200.As 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 because he did not indicate any next
of kin to this account.The amount in the dormant account is Fourteen
Million United States Dollars (US$14 000,000.00) . As it may interest
you to know, I got your contact from the Chamber of Commerce on foreign
business relations here in Lome -togo though I did not disclose why i
needed a foreign contact and only told the director on seat it was for
retirement and investment purposes.Meanwhile as a Senior Staff in this
bank, and the Director of Auditing and Accounting, I have in my
possession all the necessary documents to perfect this deal by making
you the bonafide next of kin/Partner whom this money will be
transferred into your account. I need your assistance and co-operation
to get this deal done. Because as a foreigner, you stand a better
position to be presented through documentation as the next of
kin/Partner since the deceased is also a foreigner, this is the reason
why I could not do this deal alone as a staff of the bank as well.I
will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On
smooth Conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of
the total sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take
care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also
telephone bills, while 60% will be for me and my partner. Please, you
have been advised to keep this "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 bank account. And ask me 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 advice us to invest in.All other necessary vital
information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get
back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal.I am
expecting your urgent reply as soon as you receive this message.God
