Being the manager accounting / audit department Regional office I discovered a sum of $4.300, 000.00 USD (FOUR MILLION, THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) Only in a Fixed Deposit Account belonging to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Moises Saba Masri. He was a Jewish business mogul from Mexico that died on a helicopter crash early this year.

All I need is to upload your names to the documents and legalize at the Republic du Benin High Court of Law in order to prove you the legitimate beneficiary. All I require now is your honest co-operation; confidentiality and trust to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you 100 % success and that this business transaction will be executed under the ambit of law and will also protect you from any breach of the contract.
