Hello Dear, 

This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come 
into your mind but please consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility. 

I am Mr. Haford kubiri, the manager in charge of Auditing department of Bank of Africa (B.O.A) 
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso, with due respect and Regard; I have decided to contact you on a business 
transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction. 

During our investigation and auditing in this Bank, my department came across a very huge sum of 
money belonging to one of our deceased customer who died on Feb 28th 2002 of a ghastly motor 
accident and the fund has been dormant in his account with this bank without any claim of the fund 
in our Custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development. 
Although personally, I keep this information secret to enable the whole plans and idea be 
Profitable and successful during the time of execution, the said amount is Fifteen million three 
hundred thousand United States dollars (US$10.7m), as it may interest you to know, I got your 
impressive information on my search for a reliable partner, I contacted you to be my partner and 
person to be reliable and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any problem. 

Meanwhile all the arrangement to put claim over this fund as the next of kin to the deceased, get 
the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in Place and 
directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and 
willingness to assist me and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity, In fact I 
could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant and 
we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise eye brow on my side 
during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. 

This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as 
the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to the bank and also present a foreign account 
where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due 
verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will 
be remitted from to your own designation bank account. I will not fail to inform you that this 
transaction is 100% risk free, on smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 
30% of the total sum as gratification, while 5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may 
arise during the time of transfer, while 65% will be for me, please you have been advised to keep 
"Top Secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal 
with you. 

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank Until you confirm the money in your 
account, and ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to 
percentages previously indicated and further Investment, either in your country or any country you 
advice us to invest in and all other necessary vital information will be send to you when I hear 
from you. 

I suggest you get back to me As soon as possible and also include your personal phone/mobile and 
fax numbers for easy communication. Reply to email

Yours faithfully, 
Mr. Haford kubiri
