During my investigation and auditing in this Bank here in Ouagadougou, Burkina-Faso west africa, I came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased customer in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before my discovery to this development. the said amount was US$5.5m (Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)
It is therefore upon this that I now decided to make this business proposal to you so that the money could be released to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and as such a Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. i agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 60% would be for me.
There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,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.
As soon as you finish reading this email for more details. This is the site of the plane crash: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/1815680.stm
