This email with the subject "URGEREPLY NEEDED." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 13 Aug 2010 22:31:06 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was Mr Frank Pubudu <>, although it may have been spoofed.

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittanc
e department of BANK OF AFRICA PLC. I am writing to seek your cooperation over this business deal. 
In my department, I discovered an abandoned sum of $14million USD (Fourteen Million United States 
Dollars)only , in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his 
entire family in a plane crash that took place in Kenya,East Africa,the Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY,a 
citizen of Atlanta,United States of America but naturalized in Burkina faso,West Africa and 

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and 
claim his money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately , 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 now decided to make this business 
proposal to you and release the money to you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin or 
relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and 
this money Could go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulate that if such money remained unclaimed after 12 years, 
the money will be transferred into the Bank's treasury as unclaimed fund.The request for your 
assistance and maximum co-operation as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin in this 
business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe 
cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

40 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner,in respect to the provision of a foreign 
account. 5 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 55 % would be for 
me.There after I will come over to your country for disbursement according the percentages 
indicated.Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must apply 
first to the bank as the relation or next of kin to the deceased,indicating your claims and where 
in the money will be remitted. Everything regarding the transaction is already perfected, Please 
acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business endeavor by furnishing me 
with the following:

1. Full Names
2. Full Contact Address (physical)
3. Telephone numbers and fax

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of application which you 
will fill and forward to the office of the foreign remittance director of the BANK OF AFRICA. I 
will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is strictly confidential and i will use 
my position in this Bank to effect a hitch free transfer of the fund. You should contact me 
immediately as soon as you receive this letter for brief discussion.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Frank Pubudu
