Bill & Exchange Manager. Mr Abdul Idrisa. Dear friend, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foriegn remittance department of AFICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK. I am writing, following the impressive information about you through one of my friends who WORKS with the BURKINA CHAMBERS firm. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $6.5Million dollars (six million five hundred thousand US dolloars) in an account that belongs to one of our foriegn customer who died along with his entire family in November 2002 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 some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlines and laws, but unfortunately i 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 so that the bank will 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 i don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidling here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after six years the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund, the request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foriegn account, 10% will be set aside for expenses occured during the business and 60% would be for me and my family. There after I and my family will visit your country for disbursement of the fund according to the percentage indicated. Now to enable the immediate transfer of the 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 bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location wherein 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 -free so you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required information of the deceased indicate has been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter . Yours faithful, Bill & Exchange Manager. Mr. Abdul Idrisa.
