FROM THE DESK OF AHMED COSI 
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER 
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT. 
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) OF BURKINA 
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO 
TEL:00226 70 99 00 60

Dear Friend, 
 
ASSALAM-U-ALAIKUM.
 
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department in the BANK OF AFRICA 
(BOA) OF BURKINA FASO OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO. 
 
I am writing,following the impressive information about you through one of my friend. He assured me 
of your capability and releability to champion this business opportunity. 
 
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S$10.5M US dollars (TEN Million five hundred 
US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his 
entire family in DECEMBER 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 can not release it 
unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our 
banking guidlines and laws 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  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 i don't want this money to go 
into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. 
 
The banking law and guidline 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 foreign as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer 
was a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not 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 foreign account, 5%will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 65% would 
befor me and my colleagues. 
 
There after I and my family 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 relation or next of kin to 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 e-mail 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 for more explanations. 
 
Thanks
Yours faithfully,
