ATTENTION: I received encouraging information about you and how trusts worthy you are. I am delighted with such useful information.My name is Mr.Ali Mohamed Kamal. I am the manager of Bill and Exchange department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department i discovered an abandoned sum US$8.5 million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family on February 2006 in a fatal car accident.May their souls continue to rest in peace.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 somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased. Unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him during that fatal car accident leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that i now decided to make this business proposal to you, so that the money can be release to your account as the next of kin. And I agreed to offer you 50% of this money as my foreign partner after confirmation of the funds into your bank account.You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you Yours Sincerely; Mr.Ali Mohamed Kamal.
