With due respect, please don't be surprised or afraid to receive this type of message from me. I am Barrister Felian Kunam, the personal resident Attorney to Dr. Eric MORGAN, the late businessman who died with his wife and only daughter in the event of terrorist attack on 11th September, 2001 World Trade Centre in America. My client Dr. Eric MORGAN leaves the total sum of Fourteen Million Two Hundred thousand united state dollars ($14.2m USD) in his bank account here in Burkina Faso .
Dr. Morgan was a Gold & Diamond dealer in some of East and South Africa countries but the reason of bringing such amount here is to establish Cement Factory. Unfortunately he lost his live with his family in the event of the incident. I have made several enquiries to locate any of his relatives but to no avail.
Above all, hence nobody is available for the claim I am looking for a dependable individual that I can trust, someone who wiling and honest enough to carry out this transaction with diligent to the best of his/her ability to collaboration and transfer the money from the bank custody before end of next month. Besides, the bank officials are treating to confiscate the fund to bank treasury as unclaimed bill because the banking rules and regulations stipulate that if such amount remain unclaimed after seven (7) years the will confiscate and transfer to bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request for foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and Burkinabe is unacceptable to stand as next of kin to a foreigner here in my country.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of the fund as indicated, you must apply first to the bank as the deceased next of kin by indicating your bank information where the money will be remitted. You may be interested to know that I have all the necessary legal documents to backup the claim.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any branch of law. I hope you will welcome this life opportunity, if so, please get back to me with confirmation of your good interest to enable us discuss further about the sharing ratios.
Upon the receipt of your acceptance, I will send you more detail explanation for your better understanding.
