I am Abdi Mohamed, The Auditor General of a bank in Burkina Faso, during the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank for years and nobody is operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local persan on here, without valid international foreign passport, but it can only be approved to a foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign bank account because the money is in US DOLLARS and the former owner of the account is a foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into a foreign bank account..
However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us together. Also I want you to know that am revealing this business to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you on the next step to take urgently. Send also your private telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.
I want us to meet face to face if possible to build confidence and trust and to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together before transferring the money to any account of your choice where the fund will be safe before i fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instructions.I need your strong assurance that you will never, never betray me or let me down. With my influence and the position of the bank official, I can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending until my physical arrival in your country for sharing. And to build confidence you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and two of us will fly back to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account. I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account.
I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your bank account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments.
