Dear Friend,

I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise,I got your contact 
address from the internet while I was searching for somebody that has 
similar name with our deaceased customer.

I am the manager of bill and exchange BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) at foreign 
remittance department .There is a business I would want you to  champion for 
  me.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of ($31.500.000 U.S) 
thirty one million five hundred thousands US dollars) . In an account  that  
belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family 
in 11th september 2003 in a plane crash. Since we got information about his  
death,  we 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 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's or relation died 
along side with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my 
department now decided to make this businness proposal to 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 dont want 
this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking  law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained 
unclamed after four years, the money will be transfered 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. We agree that 20 % of this money will be for you 
as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % 
will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 70 % would be 
for me and my colleagues.

There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement 
accoding to the percentages indicated. 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.All 
modalities of this transaction have been  carefully worked out and once 
started will not take more than fourteen(14) working days, with your full 
support. this transaction is 100% risk involve no any inplication 
and no any precaution there after.

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.

Yours faithfully,
Majid Asadi
Bill and exchange manager,
Bank of africa
