I am waiting to hear from you urgently

Dear Friend,

                                            VERY CONFIDENTIAL
Attn; Please!!!

My name is Mr.Machih S. Ahonboh; I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance 
department of Bank of Africa (BOA) Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. I know this message might meet you in 
utmost surprise; however, it's just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you 
for this transaction.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 27.2m US dollars in an account that belongs to 
one of our foreign customer (MR. PAUL LOUIS from Paris, France) who died along with His entire 
family in 6th December 2003 in a plane crash.

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 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 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 because I 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 Eight to 
Nine years an above, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. I 
agree that 40 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of a 
foreign account,   and while 60 %would be for me.

  There after I 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 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 no entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made 
for the transfer.

Please make sure you keep this transaction as your top secret and make it confidential till we 
receive the fund into the account that you will provide to the Bank. Don't disclose it to any body, 
because the secrecy of this transaction is as well as the success of it.

I am waiting to hear from you urgently.

Mr. Machih S. Ahonboh
