It will be a surprise for you to receive this mail.
I am Mr Ali Harrin, the director of accounts & auditing dept. At the bank of Africa Ouagadougou-west Africa .
With due respect i have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be beneficial to both of us. At the bank's last accounts/auditing evaluations, my staffs came across an old account wich was being maintained by a foreign client who we learnt was among the deceased passengers of an airline crash on 6th November 2003.
Since the deceased was unable to run this account since his death. The account has remained dormant without the knowledge of his family since it was put in a safe deposit account in the bank for future investment by the client. Since his demise, nobody, not even the members of his family have applied for claims over this fund and it has been in the safe deposit account until we discovered that it cannot be claimed since our client is a foreign national and we are sure that he has no next of kin here to file claims over the money.
As the director of the dept, this discovery was brought to my office so as to decide what is to be done. With the few personnel in my dept, we decided to seek ways through which to transfer this money out of the bank and out of the country too.
The total amount in the account is Fifteen million dollars (USD15, 000,000.00) with our positions as staffs of the bank, we are handicapped because we cannot operate foreign accounts and cannot lay bona fide claim over this money. The client is a foreign national and you will only be asked to act as his next of kin and i will supply you with all the necessary information’s and bank data to assist you in being able to transfer this money to any bank of your choice where this money could be transfer into.
I and my partners have decided to give away thirty %(30%) to you for your assistance and ten (10%) for any expenses that might arise during the transaction of this transfer. we want to assure you that this transaction is absolutely risk free since we work in this bank which is why you should be confident in the success of this transaction because you will be updated with information as at when desired and i will please wish you keep this transaction secret and confidential.
Upon your reply i will send to you the details and text of application which you are going to fill and send to the bank for the claiming of the said fund into your bank account.
May ALLAH help you to help us to a restiveretirement. Amin.
Thanks and remain blessed,
Mr Ali Harrin.
