MR. Kaburi Yusuf
Burkina Faso (BOA)
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso


I am the head of Accounts and Audit Department of Bank of
Africa,Ouagadougou. I decided to contact you after a careful
thought that you may be capable of handling this business
transaction which i   explaine below; In my department i
discovered an abandoned sum of $19.5m US dollars (Nineteen
million, five hundred thousand US dollars). In an account
that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along
with his entire family in 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 it
as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in
our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that his
supposed next of kin(his son and wife) died alongside,with
him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim .


It is therefore upon this discovery that I have now decided
to make this business proposal to you and release the money
to you as the next of kin (I want to present you as his
busines asociate )to the deceased for safety and subsequent
disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't
want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such
money remained Unclaimed after seven 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 Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner . 
I agree that 40% 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 50% would be for me and  I will visit your
country for disbursement according to the percentages
indicated,therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this
fund to your account as arranged,you must apply first to the
bank as next of kin of the deceased customer. 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.

I expect that you contact me immediately as soon as you
receive this 
letter with the information bellow.
Your full name ...............
Your address................
Hoping to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully,
Accounts & Audit Department ,
Bank of Africa
