My Dear,

I am Mr Koffi Adams, the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign 
remittance department Bank of Africa.

In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of US$18.5M (EIGHTEEN million 
five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our 
foreign customer named Mr.George Brumley Jr 68 years who died along with his 
family in the year 2003 in a plane crash in Kenya dated on Monday, July 21, 
2003 by 1:00 AM EDT 0500 GMT the website

Since i got information about his death, I 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 the next of kin or relation to the deceased as 
indicated in our banking guide lines and laws but unfortunately i 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 champion this 
business with 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 guidelines here stipulates that if such money remained 
unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the bank 
treasury as unclaimed fund.

The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by 
the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkina cannot stand as the 
next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as respect to the provision 
of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the 
business and 60% 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 as arranged, you will apply first to the bank as relation or 
next of kin of the deceased customer.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of 
the application for you to fill and send to the bank. 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
mail, Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully.

Mr.Koffi Adams.
