Dear Friend, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S $7.5m us dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER FROM GERMANY) who died along with his entire family in July 2000 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 the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guiding and laws but unfortunately we learnt that his next of kin died along with him in the plane crash. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of account where the money will be transferred while 60% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you designated account. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you a the text of application, I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is risk free Yours Faithfully, James Bado
