Hundred thousand United States Dollars) for twelve calendar months in my Bank Branch. 

Upon Maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a 
month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his company that Mr. Andreas Schranner was 
aboard the AF4590 plane crash, which crashed on Monday, 31 July 2000 into the Hotelissimo. Visit 
the web site for confirmation. 

After further investigation, all the official board directors of these bank them discovered that he 
died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin proved fruitless.On further

the next of kin , such  money will be revert to the Burkina Faso government  treasury if nobody 
applies as the next of Kin to claim of the fund.

Consequently, It is upon this respect, I seek to present you as a foreign partner to stand in as 
the next of kin to the late Mr. Andreas Schranner since no one will come up for the claim upon your 
acceptance of this proposal, I shall send to you by mail the ADB Bank "Next of Kin Payment
