Dear Friend,
I am MR Tango Ali the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of
Bank of Africa (BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso West-Africa with due respect and
regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be
very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a
very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person Mr.Emmanuel  Etukudo who
died on May 2nd, 2004 in a gassy car accident with his entire family on there
way back from Bobo-Dioulasso the formal capital city of Burkina-Faso, and the
fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the
fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to
this development.
The said amount was U.S $9.8M (Nine million eight hundred United States
dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information
through yahoo search on foreign business relations here in Ouagadougou
Burkina-Faso. Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as
the bona fide next of kin to the deceased, to get the required approval and
transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives,
and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your
interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit your self to this great
business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this
country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign
account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of
transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will
require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with
affidavit of trust of oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where
he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be
after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank
where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designation bank
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On
smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 40% of the total
sum as gratification, while 60% will be for me. Please, you have been advised to
keep "top secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from
service after we conclude this deal.. I will be monitoring the whole situation
here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come
down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages
previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any
country you advice us to invest in. All other necessary vital information will
be sent to you when I hear from you.  
I will be expecting to hear from you soonest.
Have a nice day
MR Tango Ali
