RE: REMITTANCE OF  US$10,500,000

zonego Dear Friend I am the manager of bill and exchange at the
foreign remittance department of the Bank of Africa(BOA)BURKINA FASO. I
am writing following the impressive information about you. I have the
assurance that you are capable and reliable enough to champion an
impending transaction. In my department, we discovered an abandoned
sum of US$10.5m USD (Ten million, five hundred thousand US dollars), in
an account that belonged to one of our former customers who died along
with his entire family in a plane crash, in November, 2001. Since we
received the information about his death, we expected his next of kin to
come forward and claim his money, as enshrined in our banking laws and
regulations. So far nobody has come forward, and we cannot release
the funds unless someone applies as the next of kin as stipulated in our
guidelines. Unfortunately, we have discovered that all his supposed next
of kin or relations died alongside with him in the plane crash, and
effectively leaving nobody behind to come forward and claim the balance
left in his account. My colleagues and I want to take this once in a
life time opportunity.It is consequent upon this discovery that other
officials and I in my department decided to make this business proposal
to you. We want to present you as the next of kin or relation of the
deceased person. We intend to transfer the money into your account for
safety and subsequent disbursement, since nobody is coming forward for
it. If we lose this golden opportunity, the bank is going to return the
money into the bank’s treasury as unclaimed bill. The bank’s
regulation stipulates that if after seven years, such money remains
unclaimed; the money will be reverted to the bank’s treasury as
unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner as the next of kin in this
transaction is predicated upon the fact that the said customer was a
foreign national and no citizen of this country can claim to be the next
of kin of a foreigner. We agree that 30% of the total sum we be given
to you for your assistance in facilitating this transaction. My
colleagues and I are going to retain 60% of the total sum, and 10% will
be set aside for the expenses that we may incur in facilitating the
remittance. To enable us effect this remittance, you must first apply as
the next of kin of the deceased. Your application will include your
bank co-ordinates, that is, your bank name, bank address and telex, your
bank account.I want you also to include your private telephone no. and
fax no. in your response to me, for easy and effective communication
during this process. My colleagues and I will visit your country for
disbursement according to the agreed ratio, when this transaction is
concluded. Upon the receipt of your response, I will send to you the
text of an application which you will use to apply to bank for payment
of this to your bank account. I must not fail to bring to your notice
the fact that this transaction is hitch free, and that you should not
entertain any fear, as you are adequately protected from any form of
embarrassment. Do respond to this letter today to enable us proceed
with the transaction. Yours sincerely, Mr larry zonego
