From Andrew Chidi
Audeting And Accoting Unit
Organization Union
du Banque Lome-Togo.

Dear Sir,

I am Andrew Chidi, the director in charge of auditing
and accounting section of  Union Togolaise du Banque
Lome-Togo in West Africa with due respect and

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 person who died on november
1997 in a plane crash and 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 keep this information 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 us$14M (fourteen
million united states dollars).

As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive
information through the business directory at chamber
of commerce and Industry here in Lome- Togo where I
was seaching for a good relaible contact to do the
business with.I was elated the time I saw your address
to propose the business to you.

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 a foreign account has been put in place and
directives and needed information will be relayed to
you as soon as you indicate your interest and
willingness to assist us and also benefit your self 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
with affidavit of trust of oath 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 designation bank

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

Please,you have been adviced to keep 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 advice us to invest in.

All other necessary 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.My telephone number
is 00228-01-56-98.

 Best Regard,
  Andrew Chidi
