FROM THE DESK OF MR JAVED PETERS. BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER, BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A). OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO WEST AFRICA.
I am the manager of bill and exchange department BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15m US dollars ( fifteen million 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. <*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
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 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 donít 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 five 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 Burkina be can not stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I decided to make it that 30 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for any expenses both of us made during this deal and 60 % will be for me and this 10% is for any expanses from your own side you make and from my own side i make during this deal, and when
the fund is transferred we have to deduct the expenses we made from our pocket during this deal first before shearing the fund according to the percentages.
Then after I 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. PLEASE MY DEAR FRIEND THIS IS MY PRIVATE LINE YOU CAN CALL ME IMMIDEATELY YOU RECEIVE THIS MAIL. 00226 (78 87 63 72) ALSO YOU REPLY ME WITH THIS EMAIL.
