Dear Friend, 
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA 
(B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou,
Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$22.3m dollars (Twenty Two 
Million Three Hundred Thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign 
customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with his entire family in 
Jully 2000 in a plane crash.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 now decided to make this business proposal to you and 
release the money to you as the next of kin orrelation 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 six 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 can not stand as next of kin to a foreigner. 
I 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 Thereafter, 
I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to 
enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged,you must apply first to the bank as 
relation or next of kin of the deceasedindicating 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.    my Email                 
Yours faithfully,
