Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise.I will appreciate your urgent response to my email and i assure you that this transfer will surely improve our lives and that of all those around us.I am Mr.Shaaban Medina, I work in the International Operation Department of a Bcb bank here in Burkinafaso. I believe and feel quite safe revealing this important business and will be glad to execute it with you. My assurance to you is that this transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both parties. I am only contacting you who is a foreigner because my bank is going to welcome any foreigner that has correct information about the account which I will give to you before we proceed.I got your mail contact from the International directory and will be glad to do this business with you.During my last momentary auditing, I have decided to contact you on a project that will be very beneficial to both of us. During our auditing in this Bank,I came across some amount of money belonging to a deceased foreigner Mr.Patrick Lokesh who died with his wife and their only daughter on 7th of Novermber 2002 in a plane crash.The fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody from his relation before my discovery to this development. He was a contractor here in my country burkinafaso as road builder but his nationality is Germany. I discovered that Mr Patrick Lokesh of Germany holds an account in my bank which he left no beneficiary. My investigation proved to me as well that his company and family does not know anything about this very account. The transferable amount is$20.5 MILLION DOLLARS (Twenty million five hundred Thousand Dollars) and I want this money to transfer into a safe foreign account abroad. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine. If you are capable of handling such an amount in strict confidence and trust we will achieve this money immediately, I will also use my position to influence and effect legal approvals and immediate onward transfer of this money into your account with appropriate clearance from the ministries and foreign exchange department. As soon as the transfer is concluded, you are entitled to 40% of the total funds. Please keep this proposal secret, even if you dont want to assist I look forward to receive your urgent reply.
