Dear Friend, 

I am .Mr.Garuba Buherie ,from Burkina faso in West Africa.I got your e-mail contacts from 
computerised datas after my extensive search via the website for a God-fearing and trust-worthy 
person to  bestow this transaction which is the only hope of our survival into his or her 
hands.When i got your address,I prayed and meditated fervently over it and i commited it into the 
hands of God that you should be the rightful person to help us out before I made up my decision to 
contact you.I am The Manager of Auditing Department of Our Bank ,Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.  

In my department we discovered an abandoned usd$15M( fifteen  Million  United States Dollars). In 
an account that belongs to this our foreign customer who died along with his wife and and children 
in the 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 the 
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 in the plane crash 
leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this 
business proposals to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased 
for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it because I don't want this 
money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed Bill. 

 The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if such money remains unclaimed after five 
years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The request of 
foreigner in this transaction is necessary because our late customer was a foreigner and a 
Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner,I agree that 30% of this money will be for you 
as foreigner 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 , after which I shall visit your 
country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.Therefore to enable the immediate 
transfer of this fund to you as I have arranged,you will furnished me with a good receiving account 
details where the money will betransfered,your private tel and fax number for easy communication.  

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or e-mail a text of the application which you 
shall retype and fax to our foreign remittance manager,for easy execution of the transaction.I will 
not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is 100% hitch-free on both side. As all 
required arrangement have been made for the transfer and more so all the documents backing this 
claim will be supplied to you after you might have applied. 

Please I would like you you keep this transaction confidential and as a top secret as you may wish 
to know that I am a senior Bank official. 

Trusting to hear from you immediately. 

Yours Sincerely,
Mr.Garuba Buherie
