Dear Friend,
I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise, I got your contact
address from the computerized search. My name is Mr Frank John. I am the Bill
and Exchange (assistant) Manager of Bank of Africa Ouagadougou, TOGO. In
my department I discovered an abandoned sum of twenty million one hundred
thousand United State of American dollars (20.1MILLION USA DOLLARS) in an
account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr Kurt Kuhle from Alexandra
Egypt who died along with his family in Siber airline that crashed into sea at
Isreal on 4th October 2001.
Since I got information about his death I have been expecting his next of kin
to come over and claim his money because we can not 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
proposal 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
and I don't want the money to go into the bank treasury as
unclaimed bill.
Am contacting you because our deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe
can not stand as a next of kin to foreign customer.
The banking guidelines stipulate that the fund should be transferred into the
bank treasury after 8 years if nobody is coming for the claim. I have agreed
that 33% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the
provision of your account for the transfer, 2% will be set aside for expenses
that might occurred during the business and 65% would be for me, after which I
shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentagesindicated.
Please I would like you to keep this transaction
confidential and as a top secret as you may wish to know that I am a bank
Yours sincerely,
Mr Frank John.
