He is a citizen of your country and a former Director Société Beninoise de Gaz (SoBeGaz) Company in Benin Republic W. Africa.

I contacted you to assist in repatriating his money deposited with the "BANK OF COMMERCE BENIN (BCB)" valued at about $8.5 million dollars before confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank.

The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased, so that the funds valued at $8.5 million dollars will be paid to you then you and me can share the money 50% to me and 50% to you.

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. I will give you more information about this transaction once you send to me; Your full Name, Address, Phone number for communication purpose.

Reply urgently.
