FROM THE DESK OF AHAMED ADAH
BILL AND EXCHANGE  MANAGEMENT
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT.
THE AFRICAN BANK (T A B)
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO ,
 
Dear Friend,
 
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of The African Bank.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S$10.5 m dollars (ten.five million USD)  in an account that belongs   to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in July 2003 in a plane crash.
 
Since we got information about his death, we 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 next of kin or relation  to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlines  and laws, but  unfortunately we 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, I now 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 guidine here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed  after seven years, the money will be tranfered into the bank as unclaimed bill .
 
I therefore agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreigner partner, in   respect to the  provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 50% 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, you must apply  first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased  indicating your bank name, your  bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.
 
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 recieve this letter.
 
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully,
 Ahamed Adah

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
