TEL:00226 75 33 59 11.                                                                       

Dear Sir/Madam                Assalamu Alaikum,
I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise but due to the urgency of this transaction.
First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of its nature as being 
utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make
any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the 
day. There is no doubt that trust conceptually is a conundrum which leads itself to deferring 
interpretation, we have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of   Bank of African 
(BOA). I came to know you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this 
Confidential Transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account 
requiring maximum confidence.
I am writing to you, following the impressive information received about you from the chambers of 
commerce. I believed that you are capable and reliable to champion this business opportunity. In my 
department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 22.5 million U.S.A dollars (Twenty two million five 
hundred thousand dollars). In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along 
with his entire family On Monday, 31 July, 2000, 13:22 GMT 14:22 UK, 2000 through Concorde air lane 
with flight N AF4590 crashed off, killing all 109 people on board and you can view the site for 
more details:
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 as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that 
all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody 
behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my 
department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the 
next of kin or relation 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 law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after ten 
years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of 
foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a 
foreigner and a Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
We agree that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of 
a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60 % would 
be for me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for
disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to 
the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account 
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location 
where in the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will 
not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not 
entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully,
Dr Ahmed Sani.
