Dear Sir/Madam

I am Dr HAMED TABI  director incharge OF  auditing departments
INTERNATIONAL BANK OF Africa {IBA}. I have urgent and very confidential business proposal for you.An American Gold consultant/contractor with the burkina  faso west  African Solid Gold Corporation,mr  Morris Thompson made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months,valued at US$10,000, 000.00 (TEN Million Dollars) in my branch.
Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the west African Solid Gold Corporation that Morris Thompson died in a plane crash in Alaska Airlines Flight 261(for more information about this crash and pelease  you can contact
this website: since we got this information about his death. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr  Morris Thompson did not declare any next kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in the Bank. This sum of US$10,000, 000.00 is still sitting in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it.
According to Laws of Republic OF BURKINA  FASO,  at the expiration of 4 (four) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the burkina faso Government if nobody applies to claim the fund. Consequently, i am due to retire from office next year 2008, My proposal is that I will like you to come in as a next kin/ foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Morris Thompson, so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.
Thisis simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin.through the bank attorney as soon as you put application to the bank.
