This message might meet you in utmost surprise. However, it all just my urgent need for a foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. I got your contact from yahoo tourist search while i was searching for a foreign partner. I assured of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity when i prayed to God or Allah about you.
I am a banker by profession in BURKINA-FASO, WEST AFRICA and currently holding the post of assistant foreign remittance director in our bank. I have the opportunity of transferring the left over funds (( USD 10.183M).) of one of my bank clients who died along with his entire family
