From The Desk Of Dr.YUSUF ALIU. Bill And Exchange Manager. Bank of Africa B.O.A. Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso.
( "REMITTANCE OF $10.5 TEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSEND U.S.A DOLLARS Only.
CONFIDENTIAL IS THE CASE") Dear Friend On a very good day. I am (DR YUSUF ALIU) Manager Of BILL And Exchange in Bank of Africa(BOA).I got your contact from a Yahoo google Search.
When i was searching for a foreign partner i assured of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity when i prayed to God or Allah about you.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 10.5 million U.S.A dollars ( TEN Million Five hundred thousend U.S.A dollars Only) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer MR.ADAMS SALAH who died along with his entire family on (friday december 26,2003 ) in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death,
we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided to make this businness proposal to you and release the
money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we dont want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after five years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of 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 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incured
during the business and 60 % would be for me, Therefore after I and my family will visit you in your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as
arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations 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 where 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 transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have
been made for the transfer. Your Full Name...........................? Your Sex.................................? Your Age.................................? Your Country.............................? Marital Status......................?
Your Occupation..........................? Your Personal Mobile N°...................? Your Personal Fax N°......................? You should contact me on my number +226 75245017.immediately as soon as you receive this letter.And reply me with this e mail address firstname.lastname@example.org immediately with those informations i need from you, for me to process the text of application for you to apply to the bank.
