Dear friend,

I know that this letter may come to you as a suprise. I got your contact
address from the Internet when I was searching for a business partner.

My name is DR.ALI SIDU. I am the Bill and Exchange Manager of bank of
africa (B.O.A) ,Ouagadouguo Burkina Faso.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of USD$25. Million (TWENTY
FIVE  MILLION  U.S DOLLARS). In an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customer who died along with his wife and children in
a plane crash in a year 2000 plane crash happened in  america .

Since we got information about his death, the bank have been expecting his
next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it
unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the
deceased, as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt
that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him in the
plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business
proposals to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to
the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming
for it because I don't want the money to go into the bank treasury as
unclaimed Bill.

The request of foreigner in this transaction is necessary because our late
customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a
foreigner. I have agreed that 30% of this money will be for you as foreigner
partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account.10% will be set
for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me, after
which I shall visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentages indicated.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours Sincerely,
