FROM MR MUSA IBRAHIM.
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
AFRICAN DEVELOPEMENT BANK(A.D.B)
With presumed reliance, let me introduce myself. My name is Mr Musa
Ibrahim. I am the auditing and accounting officer of African Developement Bank
(A.D.B). I got your contact over the Internet in my search for the relatives of
one of our numerous customers who died alongside with his family in Car
During the routine check in my branch, I discovered an abandoned sum of
fiveteen million eight hundred thousand united states
dollars,(USD$15.8m). in an account belonging to an expatriate customer Mr. Alex
Otaman, a mining consultant/contractor with one of the leading oil company in
Ouaga-Burkina Faso before his accidental death on Saturday 4Th May 2000 in Bobo
via the ill-fated.
Ever since then, valuable efforts have been made to get to his people but
to no avail, as he had no known relatives and more so, he used his wife's name
as his next of kin in his account opening forms. I have been expecting his
relatives to come over to claim his money as it cannot be claimed unless
somebody applies officially for it as his next of kin as indicated in our
banking guide but no avail. Unfortunately, I discovered that his supposed next
of kin (his wife and children) died with him over the car incident. Over the
years, I decided to look for the necessary papers relating to the deposit in
order to make business out of it as the deposit was made in my branch. Now that
all papers are ready, I am asking for your assistant to release the money to you
as his relation/next of kin for safekeeping and subsequent disbursement. I know
that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive but I am
assuring you of the Security of us all as modalities have been perfected for a
swift and smooth operation.
You are being contacted because Since nobody showed up for his money and I
don't want it to go back into Burkina
Faso Government account as unclaimed bill when the next audit is
conducted. The banking law and guideline here stipulates that such money if
remain unclaimed, will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed effect.
The request of a foreigner to act as next of kin in this business is occasioned
by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a citizen of Burkina Faso
cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I am ready to negotiate the mode of
sharing with you. I will visit your country for the disbursement/investing of my
share according to the percentages we shall agree upon after the successful
transfer of the money to your account.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is 100%
hitch-free and that there is absolutely no risk in it, having concluded the
modalities for a smooth operation and my position in the bank guarantees its
successful execution. All I require is your honest co-operation, a guarantee of
your sincerity and capability to enable us conclude this deal. Note however that
the sensitive nature of this transaction demands that you have to keep it
Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this letter if
you do not appreciate this proposition. Thank you very much for your time.
Trusting to hear from you immediately,
Mr Musa Ibrahim.
