FROM THE DESK OF: DR.AHMED KABORE, BILLS AND EXCHANGE MANAGER, AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK, OUAGADOUGOU ANNEX, BURKINA FASO. My Dear Friend, First and foremost, I want you to accept my apologies for any inconveniences this mail might cause you to read.And please do write me back to this email address for the secret, urgent and confidencial reason:firstname.lastname@example.org I am the Manager of Bills and Exchange Section at the foreign remittance department of Bank Of Africa here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$22.2m US dollars (Twentytwo million two hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November 2003, in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come forward in order to 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 and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I 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. since,nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after fours years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner based 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. I, agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased. 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 this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting To Hear From You Immediately. Yours Faithfully, DR.AHMED KABORE. email@example.com
