Dear Friend, 

                                     (TOP SECRET) 
I am Mr.Josep ronoh, the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of Bank of 
Africa(B.O.A) Ouagadougou Burkina-faso in 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. 

At the bank's last accounts/auditing evaluations, my staffs came across an old account which was 
being maintained by a foreign client who we learnt was among the deceased passengers of motor 
accident on November.2003, the deceased was unable to run this account since his death. The account 
has remained dormant without the knowledge of his family since it was put in a safe deposit account 
in the bank for future investment by the client. 

Although personally,I keep this information secret within myself and partners to enable the whole 
plans and idea be Profitable and successful during the time of execution. The said amount was U.S 
$19.3M (ninetheen million three hundred United States dollars). As it may interest you to know, I 
got your impressive information through the Bukinab chamber of commerce on foreign business 
relations here in Ouaga. Burkina-faso. 

Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the 
deceased, 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 us and also benefit your self to this great business 

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 account. 

I have decided the sharing as following: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 

On the transfer of this fund into your norminated bank account{39%}being (US$7,527,000.00)will be 
your share in respect of the account provision and your assistance rendered during the transfer of 
the fund into your bank account,{ 52% } being (US$10,036,000.00) will be my share being the 
codinator and the pillar of the transaction while the rest { 9% } being (US$1,737,000.00) will be 
shared to the respectable Organisations Centers such as Charity Organisation, Motherless Babies 
homes, and helpless disabled people in the World. 

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
