Dear Good Friend, It interests me to contact you after my investigations on your capability and sincerity. I have interest of investing in your country as well as seek your services in a private and confidential matter. I am Auditor General in Bank Of Africa here in Burkina Faso On my routine inspection I discovered a dormant domiciliary account with the deposit of ($15.6 Million USD) Fifteen Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars by late Mr. Loydy trantino. Who died along with his family? I write to seek your indulgence and assistance in transferring this fund to your account through legal means. It is clearly stated in our BANKING FOREIGN POLICY and signed lawfully that if such fund remains unclaimed by the NEXT OF KIN till the period of Seven(7) years starting from the date when the beneficiary died, the money will be transferred into the BANK TREASURY as an unclaimed fund. Besides, it is not authorized by the law guiding our bank for a citizen of Burkina Faso to make the claim of the fund. So the request of you as a foreigner is necessary to apply for the claim and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable bank account as the NEXT OF KIN to the deceased. When the fund is transferred into your account, (40%) will be for you in an assistance and in provision of the bank account, %10 Is set aside for incurred expenses, while (50%) will be for me. If you are really sure of your integrity, trustworthy and confidentiality, reply with Your Full Name and Address, Your Age, Occupation and Position, Your Telephone, Mobile and Fax Number for Communication Purpose and call me so that I will let you know the steps to follow in order to finalize this transaction immediately. NOTE: My plan is to invest my own share of the money in your country. 1. What other lucrative investments would you suggest as I intend to invest on REAL ESTATE AND HOTELS if they are good business venture in your Country? 2. Can you be able to make residential documents and purchase a house for me and my family to relocate and settle in your country after my retirement in 3months time? I wait for your urgent responds.
