Dear Friend, 

                           (TOP SECRET) 
I am Henry Mazak,the supervisory manager at the United Bank for Africa(UBA) Ouagadougou,Burkina 
Faso,West Africa.With due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business 
transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction . 

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of 
money belonging to a deceased person who died on July 31st 2003 in a plane crash and the fund has 
been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from 
his family or relation before our discovery to this development. 

The said amount was U.S $17.5M (Seventeen million five hundred thousand United States dollars). As 
it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information and email address through the 
International web directory of Burkina Faso chamber of commerce on foreign business relations here 
in Ouagadougou Burkina-faso. 

Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the 
deceased,to get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in 
place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your 
interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this great business 

In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil 
servant(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye 
brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason 
why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with 
affidavit of trust of oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the 
money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and 
clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from 
to your own designation bank account. 

I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this 
transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as gratification, while 5% will be set 
aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, 
while 65% will be for me. Please, you have been adviced to 
keep "top secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this 
deal with you. 

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your 
account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to 
percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you 
advice us to invest in. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from 

I look forward to receive your email and reply to my email address as the urgency implies. 

Yours faithfully, 
MR.Henry Mazak.
