Dear Friend,

I am the director in charge of Auditing and Accounting section of Bank
of Africa(BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso west africa.I crave your indulgence as i
contact you in such a surprising manner. But I respectfully 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 twenty milion five
hundred thousand us dollars (US$20.5m dollars) in account that belongs to one
of our foreign customers who died on 11th September 2001,in the evening of
World Trade Centre Terrorist Attack.Since we got information about his death, we
have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because bank
cannot release it unless somebody applies as next of kin or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately there is 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 of 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 Burkinabe cannot 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, 60% would be for me.

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 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 full details of the transaction.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 required arrangements have been made for the

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully,
