Dear Friend 

I am the director of the account & auditing depertment of Bank of Africa(B.O.A) here in 
Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5m dollars  in an account belonging to one 
of our foreign customer.
Who died alongside with his entire family on Monday, 31 July, 2000 in a plane crash in paris.

Please visit this site that is one of the evidence the directors brought in other to swallow the 
money at the end of the day, 

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 some body applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings 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 and my colleagues 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 we 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 five 
years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the 
customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. 

we agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foriegn account 
,10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me and my 

Thereafter, we will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated 
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to your desiggnited bank account ,you must 
apply first to the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application 
that we will send to you,
so we will like you to send to us 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, we will send to you by fax or email the text of the application . we 
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 us immediately as soon as you receive this letter through my private email id

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
