Good day, I am pleased to use this medium to get in touch with you first because it's the fastest means to reach you to introduce a business opportunity to transfer to your overseas account the sum of (USD$12 Million) Twelve million United States Dollars out from my bank. My name is Elhadj Oumarou the director general auditing / accounting division of Bank of Africa Ouagadougou Burkina Faso, During the course of auditing in my bank last month for this year quarter final auditing and accounting, during this exercise I discovered a floating fund in an account opened for over 8years but presently dormant and till date nobody has operated on the account, after going through old files in my department, I discovered that the account belongs to a foreigner, I personally decided to investigate carefully, and discover that the owner of the account died within past 8years ago. After my result, I further traced that while the late customer was alive he did not indicate any name in his (Will PAPER DEPOSIT) as his beneficiary during the deposit of the fund. with a personal conviction of trust and confidence, I want you as a foreigner to stand in as the nearest living relative to the late customer, irrespective of your name or country and put claim over this fund, thus I can work out the release of the fund, No other person in the office knows about the existence of this account except a lady colleague in file department and she agreed with me to look for a foreigner to put claim over the fund,be assured of the risk free, as I will be behind all the transferring process till the fund enter into your account and ensure that I direct and give you every information about the late customer till the fund is successfully enter your account, I want to guarantee you the success of this transaction, based on a personal experience in the banking industry, and for your information, I'm a member of the ADHOC committee which is the decision taking body of the bank, success is guaranteed in as much as you are willing to work with me and abide by my instructions and co-operate with me because the account content can not be approved to an indigene / citizen of Burkina Faso as his next of kin/beneficiary. At the conclusion of this business deal, we will share the total fund in a ratio of 40% for you and 60% for me. I plead that you not consider this against moral justification, there are many other aspects of life we may contribute with this fund helping the less privileged and the needy in our society than having this fund shared as an unclaimed bill among my country government top officials, PLEASE I ADVICE YOU KEEP THIS AS A SECRET AS YOU KNOW AM STILL A SENIOR STAFF OF THE BANK BUT I INTEND TO RETIRE MY APPOINMENT IN THE BANK AS SOON AS THIS FUND LEAVES OUT OF MY BANK AND OUT OF THE COUNTRY, So whether you are interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to any one else because is only you and me that knows about this information's.
