Dear Partner,
         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 USMA BELLO. I am the Bill and Exchange Manager of bank of africa (B.O.A) ,Ouagadouguo Burkina Faso. In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of USD$25. Million (TWENTY FIVE  MILLION  U.S DOLLARS). In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his wife and children in a plane crash in the year 2000 plane crash that happened in  america,website:
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 Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I have agreed that 30% 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 when the money has been transfer into your bank account and 60% would be for me, after which I shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours Sincerely.
