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 a=
nd writing through this channel.
I got your contact from the proffesional data base found in the internet Ya=
hoo tourist search.When i was searching for a foreign reliable partner.I as=
sured of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportun=
     After series of prayers/fasting.i was divinely directed to contact you=
 among other names found in the data base Yahoo tourist search.I believe th=
at God has a way of helping who is in need.
   I am (Sani  Mustapha),the Head of file Department in Bank Of Africa (B.O=

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $18.5 million U.S.A doll=
ars ( eighteen million five hundred u.s dollars) . In an account that belon=
gs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in =
(Monday 31st July 2000) 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 somebody appl=
ies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our b=
anking guidelines,=20
but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation d=
ied along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the cl=
aim. It is therefore upon=20
this discovery that I and one official in my department 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 sinc=
e nobody is coming for it and we don=E2=80=99t want this money to go into t=
he bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained u=
nclaimed after seven years, the money will be transferred into the Bank tre=
asury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this bu=
siness is occasioned by the fact that the customer
 was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigne=
r. We agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in r=
espect 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 a=
ccording to the percentages indicated.=20

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 deceas=
ed indicating your bank name, your bank account number,=20
your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective=20
communication and location where 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 that this transaction is hitch fre=
e and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrang=
ements have been made for the transfer.=20
