Compliment Of The Season,
On a very good day. I am (DR alihaji usuma (Esq.)
Esq),The Head of file
Department in BANK OF AFRICA(B.O.A).I got your contact from CHAMBER OF 

When i was searching for a foreign partner i assured of your capability and
reliability to champion this businees opportunity when i prayed to God or
Allah about you.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15
million U.S.A dollars ( fifteen million U.S.A dollars) . In an account that
belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family
in (Monday 31st July 2000) 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
alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official 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 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
unclamed after five 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 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 incured during the
business and 60 % would be for me and my woman colleague. There after i will
visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer 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 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 thetransfer.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yourís faithfully,
DR alihaji usuma (Esq.)
