I am AHJ IBURAHIM MANTU from Burkina faso.I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before, but need not to worry as I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is informed of this communication.
To make it clear, I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum
of $11.3million immediately to your private account OR you can open a
new account where this money will be transferred into even an empty a/c can serve as far as it can receive money.
The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for years now without anybody coming for the claim of it. I want to release the money to you as the relative to our deceased customer the account owner(Mrs.Joyce Lake) who died a long with her husband Ronald Lake in a plane crash since 31 January 2000.
You can confirm the genuineness of the decease death by visiting this
The Banking laws here does not allow such money to stay more than 8
years,that is why i want to release the money to you so we can use it to
secure the future of our both families because i don't want the money to
be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
Please respond urgently if you are interested.
