I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foriegn remittance department of AFICAN DEVELOPMENT 
BANK (ADB). I am writing, following the impressive information about you through one of my friends 

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $U.S15.5Million dollars( fiftten million five 
hundred thousand US dolloars)  in an account that belongs to one of our foriegn customer who died 
along with his entire family in November 2003  in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and 
claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking  guidelines and laws but unfortunately we 
learnt that all his immidiate family members died alongside  with him in the plane crash leaving 
nobody behind for the claim.It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other trusted collegues 
in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the monetoyou as the 
next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement,since nobody is 
coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidling here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after six years 
the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact  that the 
customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 
30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect  to the  provision of a foriegn 
account, 10% will be set aside for all expenses that may come during the tranfer process  and 60% 
would be for me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for 
disbursement according  to the percentage agreed.

Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first 
to the bank as relation or next of kin to  the deceased, indicating your BANK NAME, ACCOUNT NUMBER, 
YOUR  PRIVATE PHONE NUMBER AND FAX NUMBER for easy and effective communication and location where 
the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email  the 
APPLICATION FORM. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is 100% riskfree 
and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for 
save and easy transfer.
You can contact me immediately as soon as you recieve this mail on my private phone line 
+22678033446 for further clarifications.

Yours faithfuly.
