AFRICA. I am mr.micheal sawyer,manager at the audits/accounts
department of the bank of africa(b.o.a).I got your contact address from
the trade and exhibition centre here in burkina faso,and you are the
only person that I have contacted in this business with the believe that
you will not let me down and we will work together to develop trust and
confidence in this business.After going through some old files in the
records department,I have discovered that there is an account opened in
1980,belonging to the late Mr.Jerome.N.Snaga a foreigner,a miner at the
Koudougou Gold Company here in burkina faso,a geologist by
profession,and since 1990 nobody has operated the account following
Mr.Snaga's death in 1990. Since then,no other person knows about this
account,and the amount involved is:US$18.5 million (EIGHTEEN MILLION,AND
like to first transfer US$10 million into your overseas account as a
foreigner because Mr.Snaga was a foreigner,then later i will transfer
the remaining US$8.5 million before joining you in person
for disbursement,and investment opportunity which you will be a part to
it.I am only contacting you because of your foreign status as this money
cannot be approved to a local bank here,but can be approved to any
foreign account because the money is in a foreign currency (US dollars)
and the former owner of the account,Mr.Snaga was a foreigner. Because
of the need to involve a foreign account,i needed your full
co-operations to make this work fine because the management is ready to
approve the payment to whoever has the correct informations to this
account,of which i will give to you later,if you are able to handle such
amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instruction and
advice for our mutual benefits because this opportunity will never come
again in our lives.I needed a trustworthy person in this business
because i don't want to make a mistake,and i needed your strong
assurance,trust and reliability. With my position now in the
office,and the influence of the top bank directors of the bank of
africa,ouagadougou here in burkina faso,i will make sure that this money
is transfered into any reliable account,which you can provide with the
assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in
your country for our sharings.Your physical presence is also welcomed
here in burkina faso,in which the transfer will be done in your
presence.I will as well destroy all the documents of the transaction
immediately you receives this money, leaving no trace in any place. I
have the tendency to invest my own share of the money in your country in
expectation to a sound management and a good capital returns according
to your advice.Rest assured you stand no risk of any kind as the fund
belongs to you and i now,therefore after the eventual stage of the
transfer of this fund,i am offering you 30% of the total fund,65% will
be for my investment while 5% will be set aside for any expenses that
might be incurred during the cause of this transaction.I strongly
believe that associating with you to embark on this fund
transfer,and other business ventures will derive a huge success there
after. I am counting on your sense of confidentiality,as it is my
desire that you keep this to yourself,and endeaviour to furnish me with
your private telephone number(mobile preferably),and your photo or
identity card for more recognition of whom you are facially.After
which,i will send to you the text of application form of claim which you
shall fill,and send to the bank inorder to contact the bank managements
officially for the release of the fund into your bank account where you
would like the first,and second payments to be transfered into for a
quicker confirmations. You should contact me immediately by email for
more details on the modalities of this transaction as soonest as you
receives this letter.Trusting to hear from you urgently. Thanks
from, Mr.micheal sawyer.
