BANK OF AFRICA(BOA)

of Africa(BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso west africa.I crave your
indulgence as i contact you in such a surprising manner. But I
insist you read this letter carefully as I am optimistic it will open
doors for unimaginable financial rewards for both of us.
In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of Five Million Three

our foreign customers (Mrs Joyce Lake An america)who died Eight years
ago in 2000 a plane crash with the whole passengers aboard Nb;in other
for you to believe me honestly go through this (Website ) before you
start with me Below is the ;CLICKHERE
Since we got information about her death, we have been expecting her
next of kin to come over and claim her money because the bank cannot
release it unless somebody applies as next of kin or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately
no one that comes for the claim.
It is therefore upon this that I now decided to make this business
proposal to you so that the money could be released to you as the next
kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement
since nobody is coming for it and i dont want this money to go into the
bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this business is
occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a
stand as next of kin to a foreigner. i agree that 40% of this money
will be for you as a foreign partner in respect to the provision of a
foreign account, 50% would be for me and 10% for any expenses that may
arrise and also part to the homeless,priviledges and motherless homes.
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
relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name,your
Name, Your private telephone and fax number,Your Home Address and
Occupation for easy and effective communication and location wherein
money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply,I will send to you by fax or email the full
details of the transaction and application form to apply to the bank.I
will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch
free and that you should not entertain any atorm of fear as all
arrangements have been made for the
