Attn: Dear Sir/MadamI am MOHAMMED SALA, The manager Bills and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department BANK OF AFRICA PLC. I am writing you following the impressive information i got about your profile through the senegalese Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Therefore, I believed that you posess the capability and reliability to champion this opportunity with me. I am asking for your support and co-operation to carry out this business transaction in my department were we discovered an abandoned sum of $30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars only) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family of a wife and two children in the Sept.11 2001 terrorist attack on america. Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to come over and put claims for his money as the heir, because we cannot release the fund from his account unless "someone" applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Unfortunately,none of their family member nor distant relative has ever appeared to claim the said fund. Upon this discovery, I and other officials in my department have agreed to make business with you and release the total amount into your account as the heir of the fund since no one has come for it nor discovered he maintained an account with our bank, otherwise the fund will be returned to the bank's treasury as unclaimed fund.
We have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as stated thus; 30% for you as our foreign partner, 65 % will be for us the officials in my department and 5 % for the settlement of all local and foreign expenses incurred by us and you during the course of this business. Upon the successful completion of this transaction,one of my colleagues and I will come over to your country and mind our share. To commence this transaction, we urge you to immediately register your interest by a return e-mail enclosing your private contact telephone number, fax number, full names and address and also, your designated bank coordinates to enable us file the letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals before the transfer can be completed. Please note that this transaction must be kept STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL because of its nature. I look forward to receiving your swift response.
