Dear friend,

I know that this letter may come to you as a suprise. I got your contact address from the Internet 
when I was searching for a business partner. My name is DR. ALI MOMODO I am the Bill and Exchange 
Manager of bank of africa (B.O.A), Dakar Senegal. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum 

In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his wife and children 
in a plane crash in a year 2000 plane crash happened in america . Since we got information about 
his death, the bank 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 the 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 in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It 
is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposals to you and release 
the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement 
since nobody is coming for it because I don't want the money to go into the bank treasury as 
unclaimed Bill.

The request of foreigner in this transaction is necessary because our late customer was a foreigner 
and a Senegales cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I have agreed that 40% of this money 
will be for you as foreigner partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account.10% will be 
set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me, after which I shall 
visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Trusting to hear from 
you immediately.

Note : This transaction is 100% risk free as I have all requested information which shall aid the 
total accomplishment of this fund repatriation into your personal account as the beneficiary to the 
deceased. Upon the confirmation of your positive response , I shall send to you by fax / mail the 
commencement step , full information of the bank and that of the deceased for instant inception of 
this transaction. Your full names,telephone/fax number,mailing address,age and occupation would 
also be needed asap based on trust and honesty.

I look forward to your positive response.

Yours Sincerely,
Yourˇs faithfully,
