I am MR ZUMA HAZAN, a banker with the above mentioned bank in Ouagadougou
Burkina Faso in West Africa, holding the post of the Audit & Accounts dept.
On December, 25, 2003, one of our custormer An Astute
Business man of international repute, a contract with ecowas country, whose
endeavors spans various areas of Business interest, (Real estate, contract and
Farming .etc) made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at $19.3 M (Nineteen
 Million Three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) for twelve calendar
months in my Bank Branch.
Upon Maturity, we 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
company that he was aboard the AF4590 plane, which crashed
December, 25  2003. After further investigation, it was discovered that he died
without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin proved
fruitless. On further investigation, it was discovered that he
did not declare any next of kin or relatives in all his official documents,
including his Bank Deposit paper work here in our Bank. The total sum, $19.3M
is still in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum
at the end of each year. All efforts to trace and locate his next of kin proved
