ATTN friend ,

Sorry to disturb you in your daily practices. I am the Bill and Exchange Manager of Bank Of Africa (B.O.A) I am writing you with due consideration for mutual benefit. first, I must seek for your strictest assurance to this mutual business corporation and to retain the confidential of this business opportunity. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $25M US Dollars ( TWENTY FIVE MILLION US DOLLARS ), In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November 2002 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 or relation died along side with him at 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 business 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 donít 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 FIVE 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 Burkina citizen's cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

We agree that 30 % 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 incurred during the business and 60 % would be for ; me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according 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 .

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 if you are interested and ready to transact with me. Then I will request for some vital information from you first before we could proceed. In your reply do remember to include your full name and your direct Telephone/Fax number for easy communications between us.

Waiting for your soonest response.
Yours faithfully,
Mr MR Zongo,

Bill and Exchange Manager,
Bank Of Africa ( B.O.A )
