From Mr.Karim Abdela
Auditing/Accounting Section
Groupe Bank Of Africa (BOA)
Ouagadoiugou,Burkina Faso.
    My dear, I am contacting you in regards to a business transaction of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the transaction. Meanwhile,I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
  PROPOSITION; I discovered an abandant sum of $18 Million US Dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to his account (fund) with this bank (boa).
   This fund cannot be releaseed from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.  Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased person, and all information concerning the decaesed person and the fund will be giving to you by me as an insider of the bank. All documentations involved concerning the deceased will be carefully worked out by me for the fund to be released in your favour as the next of kin and beneficiary of the fund.
   It may interest you to note that I have secured from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries. Acknowledge the receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business proposal because it will bring more financial increase in our life.
    On your acceptance I will send to you an application letter you re-send to the appropriate departments of the bank for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer will be processed. I shall be compensating you with 30% of the fund while 60% will be for me and 10% will be set aside for the expencies that might incure during the transaction . And I will also let you know that while your share stays with you,mine shall be for investment purposes in your country. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.
Im waiting for your urgent respond.
Your;s faithfully,
Mr. Karim Abdela
