From: Al_Hassan Dasuki CHIEF AUDITOR(BOA)HEADQUATER GROUP BANK OF AFRICA Plc. BURKINA-FASO WEST AFRICA. My Dear Friend, I am the Chief auditor at the head quaters of this group bank of africa Plc here in Burkina Faso. At foreign accounts department of Groupe Bank of Africa Plc there is this abandoned sum of US$10.5 million dollars(Ten million five hundred thousand united states dollars only)discovered in an account that belonged to one of our foreign customer who sadly died with his family in a plane crash. Since his death, we 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 next of kin or a business associate to the deceased as applicable in our banking guidelines. But unfortunately we learnt that in the accident included his wife and only two children. In the original file he did not input any particular person but noted that “TO BE ADVISED”. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and my colleagues now decided to make this business proposal to you so that the bank can release the money to you as the next of kin or business associate to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank or government treasury as unclaimed bill. Since the bank law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Six years the money will be transferred into the 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 an indigene here cannot stand as next of kin. Based on you role I propose that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner in the business and in respect to the provision of a foreign account. 10% will be set aside to refund all expenses as maybe incurred in the process of the transaction while 50% will be for me. At the conclusion of this business, I and my family will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated for investment under your kind control and advice. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you will apply first to the bank as a business associate or next of kin of the deceased person. 1. Your Full Names and Address. 2. Your account details where the fund shall be remitted to. 3. Telephone and Fax No Please note that this transaction is strictly between you and I and Upon receipt of your reply, I will give you the application which you will fill and send to the bank for the claim process. I will not fail to advice and encourage you that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the smooth transfer and I am giving you a full assurance of success hence I am your insider partner. You should contact me immediately as soon as you read this message for more details and commencement of the claim. Trusting to hear from you immediately, Yours faithfully.
