<DIV><FONT face=3D"Courier New"><STRONG>&nbsp;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 req=
uest 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 fo=
reign 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 and my colleague will visit your =
country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.<BR><BR>The=
