Dear Friend,  
I am a senior staff in Groupe Bank of Africa (G.B.O.A) here in ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
In my department i discovered an abanadoned sum of US $ 15m Dollars ( FIFTEEN MILLION US DOLLARS) in an account that that belongs to one of our foreign customer ( MR GEORGE BRUMLEY ) Who  died along with his entire family in the year  2003 in a plane crash.
  Since we got information we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately i learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at 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 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 banking law and guidling here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after seven years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of foreigner as next of next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot 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 foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me.
Trusting to hear from you immediately. 
Yours Faithfully
