FORM THE DESK OF Mr ALI JUBRIL BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER, BANK OF AFRICA, OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO ANNEX. REPLY TO (ali_ firstname.lastname@example.org) Dear Friend, URGENT RESPONSE NEEDEDI am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA I am writing to you following the impressive information about you through a private search i conducted in searching for a realiable partner to champion this transaction. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 10.5m US dollars(ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in December 2000 in a plane crash.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting the next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as 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 at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that i deiceded to contact 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 we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained Unclaimed after six 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 Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I will give you 30 % of this money as foreign partner,in respect to the provision of a foreign account,10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60 % would be for me . There after I and my family will visit your country . Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must apply first to the bank as relations 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 .
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. 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 letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately. Your's faithfully, Mr ALI JUBRIL REPLY TO (ali email@example.com) _________________________________________________________________MSN Hotmail : créez votre adresse e-mail gratuite & à vie ! http://www.msn.fr/newhotmail/Default.asp?Ath=f
