(Scam letter sent to
on August 31, 2007)
I am Mr.David Diop,the Director of bill and exchange at the foreign
remittance department of CITI BANK Senegal.
In my department,I discovered an abandoned sum of $6m in an account that
belongs to one of our foreign customer (Kurt Kahle) who died along with
his wife and son on a Monday, 31 July, 2000,13:22 GMT in a plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
next of kin to come over and claim his money
because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of
kin or relation to the deceased as indicated
in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all
his supposed next of kin died alongside with him at the plane crash
leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery
that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the
money to you as the next of kin to the deceased for safety and
subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want
this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking laws and guidlines here stipulates that if such money
remained unclaimed after some years, the money will be transfered into
the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of
kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the
provision of a foriegn account , 10% will be set aside for expenses
incurred during the business and 60% would be for me Thereafter, I will
visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage
indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to
you,your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective
communication is very important. I will not fail to bring to your notice
this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any
attom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for smooth and
succesful transfer. Please contact me immediately as soon as you receive
this letter. Trusting to hearing from you.
Mr David Diop.
