Dear Friend,

I apologise for intruding into your privacy.Please,don't be angry with me if you see this message in SPAM of your mailbox; it will be because I sent it with low internet connection.

My name is Kabore John.I am an Auditor and Head Of Computing Department in my bank. This e-mail is strictly confidential and is for your attention only.I am making this venture proposal to you as a reliable person who can be capable to handle this transaction with me.There is a US DOLLARS ACCOUNT opened in the Bank where I work in 1995 and since 2000 nobody has operated on this account again.

After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that nobody knows anything about this account and that if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.The owner of this account is a foreigner,an GERMANY NATIONAL who was a miner and a Geologist by profession.Through my investigation, I discovered that he died since 1998; and that he died without a will meaning that the account has no other beneficiary or next of kin who can inherit the mentioned fund below.And for this reason, you and I have 100% chance to inherit the fund.

The total amount involved is US$10.4Million (Ten Million, Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only).I want this fund to be transferred into a safe foreigners partner's account abroad, but I don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to any BURKINABE PERSON here, but can only be approved to any foreign person because the money is in us dollars and the owner of the account is a foreigner too.

Moreover,before i contacted you for this I have perfected the strategies that ensure a successful transfer of the fund into your account,so it's hitch-free you should not entertain any atom of fear at all.After this transaction must have been achieved, you will be given 40% of the total amount of the fund for the provision of foreign account and your financial support, while 60% will be my own share as the originator of the transaction. I need a strong assurance from you that you will not let me down hence the total fund is transferred into your account.

Therefore if you willing,capable and ready to assist me on this transaction,kindly furnish me with your personal information as thus:
1.Full Name:
2.Home Address:
3.Age & Sex:
4.Current Occupation:
5.Private E-mail Address:
6.Private Telephone number: for easy communication.

Upon receipt of this information,i shall in turn use it prepare an Letter of Claim and submit to the Management Of the Bank on your behalf applying for immediate release of the total fund to you as the beneficiary.If you are capable send those information immediately via my e-mail for more details.

Please your urgent attention to this regards will be highly appreciated for the take-off of this transaction.


Mr.Kabore John
