FROM Dr.Adams Philip


I am the head of Accounts and Audit Department of Bank of Africa, Ouagadougou .

It is my utmost pleasure to send you this confidential message. In my search for a reliable 
business partner overseas, i got your contact in the internet and was impressed with your profile 
hence my interest in doing business with you.  In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 
30.5m US dollars (Thirty 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 
Monday,31 July, 2000 in a plane crash in paris.  Please visit this site that is one of the evidence 
the directors brought in other to swallow the money at the end of the 
day,  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 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 deceased for safety  and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't 
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 nine 
years, the money will be transferred 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 Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

We agree that 30 % 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 incurred during the business and 60 % would 
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 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.I expect 
that you contact me as soon as you receive this mail as to enable me send you the text of 
application which you are going to fill and send to the bank to enable the transfer take place 
immediately into the bank account that you are going to provide.  Hoping to hear from you 
immediately if you are interested in runining this transaction with me with truth.

Yours faithfully,
Dr.Adams Philip
Accounts & Audit Department ,
