INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL.
 
FROM THE DESK OF SABO TANKO
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICAN (BOA)
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO.
 
Dear Friend,
 
How are you,first i will explain my self little to you before we continue. I am the manager of bill 
and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICAN (BOA)I am writing to seek your 
interest over a transaction.
 
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $22.5m US dollars (TWENTY TWO MILLION FIVE 
HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign 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 somebody applies for it as 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 at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
 
It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to make 
this business proposal to you and release the money to you 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 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 of  
foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned 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 foreign partner, in respect to the provision of 
a foreign account,  10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60 % would 
be for me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for 
disbursement according to the percentages indicated. 
 
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to 
the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account 
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location 
where in the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will 
not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction  is hitch free and that you should not 
entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you 
immediately.
