From Dr. Anthony Mogbo:

My Dear,

I am Dr. Anthony Mogbo,The Auditor in charge of Foreign Remmitance Department of a bank here.This is a very confidential proposition for you.On Sept 21st 2003,an Importer of Textiles and Automobiles for the past Thirteen years, Mr. Morris Thompson made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit in his account for twelve calendar months, valued at $12.7 million USD (Twelve million seven hundred thousand United States Dollars) in my branch.
Upon maturity on Sept 20th 2004 as his Credit Officer,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.After a month,we  sent a reminder and finally I discovered from his  employees,that Mr.Morris Thompson was one of the  passengers who died with his entire family in the ill-fated plane crash involving a Boeing 727 UTA  Chartered Flight that took off from Cotonou Benin  Republic and crashed into Atlantic Ocean on Thursday, 25th December 2003.

For further details of the Plane Crash,Please Visit:

Further investigations, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. Again,I made further
investigation and discovered that Mr. Morris Thompson did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, account, including his Bank Deposit paper work in my Bank. This sum of $12.7 million USD is still sitting in my bank no one will ever come forward to claim it.According to the International Banking ethics,codes and Laws,at the expiration of 4(Four) years,the money will revert to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies to claim the  fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Morris Thompson.This is simple,I will like you to respond immediately with your full names and contact information so as I will send to you a specimen copy of an application form which you will refill and send to the bank putting claim over the said balance with the bank as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 45% for me and 45% for you while 5% will be set aside for any expenses that may arise in the process of transfering this fund into your chosen/nominated bank account you wish to  receive it and 5% to the motherless and the needy in your country.

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant information. Please send to me your
confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication , oral discussion and more directives on what next to do. You should observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country which you will be the arrow head of the investment. I must not fail to tell you that this transaction is totally risk free and legitimate.

Awaiting your urgent reply.
Thanks and GOD bless.
Dr. Anthony Mogbo
