From Mr Bedie/Confidential
My name is Basile Bedie a Banker and accountant with a prime bank here in Cote Ivoire.I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a large sum of money from a dormant account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.
I am the personal accounts manager to late Mr Bob Williams, who worked with an oil servicing company here in Cote Ivoire. My client, his wife, and their three children were involved in the ill fated Kenya Airways crash in the coasts of Abidjan in January 2000 in which all passengers on board died. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but has been unsuccessful.After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace over the internet,to see if I could locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.
Of particular interest is this huge deposit with our bank here in our country Cote Diviore, where the deceased has an account valued at about $16. million US dollars.(sixteen million dollars)Since his death, nobody has come forward to lay claims to this money and recently my bank issued a notice that the account will be declared unserviceable and the funds called to the government treasury since no relative of the deceased came up.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives over last 6 years , I will seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at about $16. million US dollars can be paid to you and then you and I will divide the money.
