FROM THE DESK OF MR. KABIRU ZONGO.
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A)
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO WEST AFRICA.   

                        
                       ("REMITTANCE OF $16.4 MILLION U.S.A DOLLARS
                                    CONFIDENTIAL IS THE CASE")

COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON,
 
FORGIVE MY INDIGNATION IF THIS MESSAGE COMES TO YOU AS A SURPRISE AND MAY OFFEND YOUR PERSONALITY FOR CONTACTING YOU WITHOUT YOUR PRIOR CONSENT AND WRITING THROUGH THIS CHANNEL.
 
I AM (MR. KABIRU ZONGO)  BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER IN BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A). IN MY DEPARTMENT WE DISCOVERED AN ABANDONED SUM OF $16.4M (SIXTEEN MILLION FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS) . IN AN ACCOUNT THAT BELONGS TO ONE OF OUR FOREIGN CUSTOMER, DR. RAVINDRA F. SHAH WHO DIED IN PLANE CRASH ALTOGETHER WITH HIS ENTIRE FAMILY ON 1st OCT 2003  ON THEIR WAY TO ATTEND WEDDING IN BOSTON. 
 
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 ALL HIS SUPPOSED NEXT OF KIN OR RELATION DIED ALONG SIDE WITH HIM AT THE PLANE CRASH LEAVING NOBODY  BEHIND FOR THE CLAIM.
 
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.
 
WE AGREE THAT 40% OF THIS MONEY WILL BE FOR YOU AS FOREIGN PARTNER, IN RESPECT TO THE PROVISION OF A FOREIGN ACCOUNT, AND 60% WOULD BE FOR ME AND MY WOMAN COLLEAGUE. 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.
 
YOUR'S FAITHFULLY,
 
MR. KABIRU ZONGO.
GOD BLESSINGS, PROTECTIONS AND GUIDIANCE TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY.
