RE: REMITTANCE OF  US$10,500,000

FROM THE DESK OF Mr bashiru usman,Dear Friend
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance
of the Bank of Africa(BOA)BURKINA FASO. I am writing following the
impressive information about you. I have the assurance that you are
and reliable enough to champion an impending transaction.  In my
we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5m USD (Ten million, five
thousand US dollars), in an account that belonged to one of our former
customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash, in
November, 2001. Since we received the information about his death, we
expected his next of kin to come forward and claim his money, as
in our banking laws and regulations.

So far nobody has come forward, and we cannot release the funds unless
someone applies as the next of kin as stipulated in our guidelines.
Unfortunately, we have discovered that all his supposed next of kin or
relations died alongside with him in the plane crash, and effectively
leaving nobody behind to come forward and claim the balance left in his

My colleagues and I want to take this once in a life time
opportunity.It is
consequent upon this discovery that other officials and I in my
decided to make this business proposal to you. We want to present you
as the
next of kin or relation of the deceased person. We intend to transfer
money into your account for safety and subsequent disbursement, since
is coming forward for it. If we lose this golden opportunity, the bank
going to return the money into the bank’s treasury as unclaimed bill.

The bank’s regulation stipulates that if after five years, such money
remains unclaimed; the money will be reverted to the bank’s treasury
unclaimed fund. The request for a foreigner as the next of kin in this
transaction is predicated upon the fact that the said customer was a
national and no citizen of this country can claim to be the next of kin
of a
foreigner. We agree that 30% of the total sum we be given to you for
assistance in facilitating this transaction. My colleagues and I are
to retain 60% of the total sum, and 10% will be set aside for the
that we may incur in facilitating the remittance. To enable us effect
remittance, you must first apply as the next of kin of the deceased.

Your application will include your bank co-ordinates, that is, your
name, bank address and telex, your bank account.I want you also to
your private telephone no. and fax no. in your response to me, for easy
effective communication during this process. My colleagues and I will
your country for disbursement according to the agreed ratio, when this
transaction is concluded.

Upon the receipt of your response, I will send to you the text of an
application which you will use to apply to bank  for payment of this to
 bank account. I must not fail to bring to your notice the fact that
transaction is hitch free, and that you should not entertain any fear,
you are adequately protected from any form of embarrassment. Do respond
this letter today to enable us proceed with the transaction.
