FROM MR.VICTOR ABUMA(B.I.B)BANK BILL AND EXCHANCE MANAGER FOREING NITERNATIONALE DEPT OUAGADOUGOU BURKINAB FASO WEST AFRICA MY PRIVATE NUMBER:(+226)78-34-65-94. Dear Sir, I am Mr.Victor Abuma, the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of Banquet International Du Burkina, In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of ($10.5m US dollars) (Ten Million five hundred thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer, who died along with his entire family on December 10,2006, in plane crash with Airbus A320 Plane. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the decease as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him at the plane clash leaving no body behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the decease for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we donât want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Two years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasure as unclaimed fund. The request of 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. We agree that 45% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 45% will be for me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arrange, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in 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 business is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. Please you should call(+226)-78-34-65-94:immediately as soon as you receive this letter for more explanation. Yours faithfully, Mr.Victor Abuma. ______________________________________________________Szezon nyitÃ nyÃrigumi akciÃk a www.gumi1.hu portÃlon!
