Dear Sir 
I am the AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING MANAGER BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. 
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5m dollars (TEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED 
THASAND US DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR RICHARD BURSON 
FROM FLORIDA US) who died along with his entire family in 1999 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 some body applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws 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 now 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 and we 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 ten 
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 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account , 
10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me Thereafter, 
I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to 
enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged, you must apply first to the bank as 
relation 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 in 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 this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not 
entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours Faithfully,
TELEPHONE 0022678030816
