I am Alison Kojo a senior Manager at BIA Bank here
in Togo. Though we have not related in the past, I am
compelled by the important nature of the opportunity
at hand to contact you so that we can explore avenues
for cooperation in this mutually rewarding project.
A very wealthy deceased customer of our bank, Mr.
Talbot Camara - a Sierra Leonean and one time minister
for natural resources in that country left some large
amount of money in a special domiciliary account with
our bank since his death in 1998.
In his Will which has just been made available to us
by his Lawyer and family, he shared his other wealth
located in some other bank accounts judiciously among
his family members and local welfare organizations,
but requested specifically that the money in this
account with our bank be allocated 100% to a foreign
organization or individual trustee who will utilize it
strictly for charity. In this Will also, he gave sole
authority for the nomination of this foreign trustee
to his personal Lawyer - Mr. Donald Lukeman and the
Head of the Domiciliary Account Department of my bank,
which position I am occupying at the moment. So, the
choice of a foreigner for this project is in strict
compliance with the WILL of the deceased account
holder who believes that the fund will be better
utilized by a foreign trustee since there will be no
interference or manipulation by local authorities.
Due to the exigencies of Togolese legislation, there
became the need to acquire a Letter Of Administration
from the Togolese Probate Registry to give legal
impetus to the execution of this Will in Togo. For
this reason, the execution of this WILL could not
materialize until last month when the court in Togo
issued the final Letters Of Administration.
Having secured this Letter Of Administration from the
court, the authority for the appointment of an
administrator for this fund now lies solely in my
hands and that of the Attorney. Both of us (Myself and
the Attorney) have met several times over this issue
and have agreed mutually among ourselves to transact
this inheritance in a way that will be beneficial to
us, and the foreign trustee. In fact, we have decided
to utilize only 20% of this fund for charity while
reserving the rest for ourselves. After deducting the
overall cost (both foreign and local) incurred in
executing this project, whatever balance left from the
outstanding 80% will be shared equally between myself,
the Attorney and the foreign partner who will assist
us to receive this money as the appointed trustee.
Also, the foreign partner will receive in addition to
his share, the 20% earmarked for Charity under the
strict agreement that this part must be spent for
Charity through him or his organization in compliance
with the wish of the late account holder.
My reason for contacting you therefore, is to solicit
for your cooperation in this project so that your name
or that of your company can be used as the appointed
foreign trustee to whose care this money will be
However, it may require that you shall be physically
present here in Lome, Togo with my assistance to
complete the necessary procedures.
There is absolutely no risk involved as we have the
copy of the Will and Letters of Administration to back
the transaction. But you must also understand that a
transaction of this nature and magnitude requires
absolute secrecy so that no one else hears about it
especially, our mutual agreement to utilize and
disburse this fund as stated in the paragraph above.
If you accept to offer your cooperation for this
project, please reach me urgently through the above
Telephone, or email address to enable me give you the
full schedule of the transaction. You should also
provide me with your private telephone and fax numbers
for intimate communication.
