I am Elhadj Oumarou, General Manager in Auditing& Accounting dept Bank Of Africa Ouagadougou 
Burkina Faso, during my excercise on existing accounts  before i pass my result to the managements 
of my bank  i came across an open account that has been operated for over 8 to 9 years ago, After 
my investigations and a review of the account opening file proved that the account was operated by 
Engineer Christian Eich a former contractor with road constructions in the capital city of Burkina 
Faso. I decided  to go  further investigation  to be sure  before contacting you and i  discovered  
that he did not indicate or written any name as his next of kin or beneficiary in his file deposit 
record with my bank. 

Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of his extended relatives in other to be 
sure before i contacted you, this proved unsuccessful, Now my major reason that made me decided to 
contact you is that I can use my official capacity to attest that you are the bona-fide next of kin 
so that approval will be given to you for the release and transfer of the sum into the account you 
will norminate to my bank as his bona-fide next of kin and rightful beneficiary, i  do not  want 
other  top directors of the bank to know about this  fund and begin plan on how to confiscate and 
share the fund  among  themselves.

The account balance is valued at US$5.6 million and upon the transfer of this fund into your 
account, my plan is to resign my appointment with the bank and come over to your country for the 
shearing of the fund with you in the percentage of  %65 for me  and %35 for you. be rest assured 
that the transfer will be hitch and risk free  transfer till the fund enter into your account and 
even after the  transfer because i am a top member of the ADHOC committee of the bank which is the 
decision taking body of the bank and their decision is final.

I will require your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through why because  the deal  
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of  law  and  
be rest assured that everything will move smoothly within 14 banking days starting from the date 
you will apply to my bank.

i want you to get back  to me urgently if  you are  willing to carryout this deal with me, you 
should contact me immedaitely with my private email ( so that i  will 
forward to you some  of the documents that my bank  will request from.  Please  Note that you and i 
are the only people who knows about this information's, and please keep it  as secret till  the 
fund enters into your account, but if you are not interested please delete my  mail  from your
