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 http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html 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. Thanks Yours faithfully. Mr.Koffi Adams. _________________________________________________________________ MSN Hotmail : créez votre adresse e-mail gratuite & à vie ! http://www.msn.fr/newhotmail/Default.asp?Ath=f
