Subject: VERY CONFIDENTIAL
Good Day, I am Mr. Ali Bahaa. Secretary to the Senior Credit Officer of BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) here in Burkina Faso.Here is a 100% concealed and mutually profitable business proposal for you. After the United States and Iraqi war, our client Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah who was the deputy governor of Baghdad in Iraq and also business man made a numbered a deposit with a value of FIFTEEN MILLION British Pounds only in our Bank here in Burkina Faso. We later found out that the Deputy Governor has been assasinated in Baghdad.The websites below is a proof and verification of the news about his death:
After further investigation, it was also discovered that Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Fifteen million British pounds is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. I will like you as a neutral person to stand in as the next of kin to Hatem Kamil Abdul Fatah so that you will be able to receive his funds with my assistance as the insider.
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out and i have done all the undergrand work of this business so that we come out successful. There are no risks involved in the matter, in as much as you follow up my instructions and directives as an insider, we will achieve our aim.
Once the fund have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 30% for you and 10% for any expenses incurred during the course of this operation.If you are interested, please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication,and i will provide you with more details of this transaction.
Mr, Ali Bahaa.
