FROM THE DESK OF DR EKOLY BAKO, THE MANAGER OF AUDIT AND ACCOUNTING DEPT, BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA-FASO. ATTN: Dearest Partner,I MAKE THIS APPEAL WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT ANY FACTS OR OPINION EXPRESSED BY ME ARE GIVING IN CONFIDENCE AND SOLELY FOR YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND USE.
I am DR EKOLY BAKO, the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of my Bank. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of ($8.5m) (EIGHT MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS)with account number 14-2558-5976 that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his wife and only daughter in a plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight number 261 which crashed on 31 January, 2000. You can read more about the crash on visiting this site
The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after four years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The money has now stayed more than four years and I am preparing documentaion to prove that this money has been transfered to our bank treasury. It will be between me and you only that will know that the money is not transfered into our treasure.
The request of foreigner as next of kin in this transaction is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabé cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.In appreciation of your assistance, I am offering you 30% of the total sum. 5% for contingencies (cost of transfer/other charges) likely to be incurred during the course of transaction, while the remaining 65% is for me.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application which you will complete and forward to our bank asking for this money to be paid to you as the next of kin to Mr. Morris Thomson. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this mail through the above email.
PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY YOU CONSIDER MY URGENTREQUEST.
