FROM,THE DESK OF MR ALI HABIB
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK,
TEL.00226 78 03 82 03.
I am the manager bill and exchange of the foreign remittance department of African Development Bank, ouagadougou burkina faso, My dear I am trusting this deal to you buy faith and hope that you will handle it without know problem.
In my department file, I discovered an abandoned sum of US $33.6m (Thirty three million, six hundred thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one
of our foreign customer who died along with his wife and the only daughter in November 2, 2002 in a plane crash.
Since I got information about his death, I have been watching out for his next of kin to come over and claim this money because, the bank cannot release it
to any person unless somebody apply for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as it is indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, unfortunately,
I discovered that the only next of kin died alongside with him a plane crash being his only daughter left nobody or relation for claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I have decided to make this business proposal to you as a foreigner and for you to stand as the next of kin or a relation to deceased person for and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for the claim and
I don’t want this money to go into the banks treasury as unclaimed bill , the banking law and guideline ARTICLE A section ABD/O11 of 1991,stipulates that if such is found in our bank after five (5) years remain unclaimed the money will be
transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer is a foreigner, a Burkinabe and a Burkinabe cannot
stand as a next of kin to a foreigner.
I arrange that 40% of this money will be for you’re as foreigner partner in respect to the
provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business, handled by you, and 50% will be for me. Thereafter, I will visit
your country for disbursement according to the percentage as indicated. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this money to your private account, you have to apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the deceased.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or e-mail the text of the application, I will not fail
to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and do not entertain any fear as all required arrangement has been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately you receive my letter through
my telephone or e-mail.
Trusting to hear from you.
MR ALI HABIB.
