FROM THE DESK OF MR, USMAN ABU
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT.
BANK OF AFRICA(BOA)
-BURKINA FASO
 
DEAR  FRIEND 
 
 
I Am Mr USMAN ABU   the manager in charge of auditing and accounting unit
foreign remittance depatmet of BANK OF AFRICA(BOA)ouaga-burkina faso in
west Africa. with due respect and regards I have decided to contact you on a
business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the
end of the transaction,During our investigation and auditing in the bank,
in my department i came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person, a foriegner who died a plane crash and the fund has been
dormant in  his account with the bank without any claim of the fund in our custody
either from his family or relation before our discovery to this  development,Although personally,
 
I kept this information secret within  myself and partners to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable  and successful during the time of execution.The amount involved is (USD$15.5
Million UNTED STATE DOLLARS). Meanwhile all the whole arrangement and
directives needed to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of
kin to  the deceased, will be forward to you upon your acceptance nformation
will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to
assist us and also benefit your self to this great business  portunity.
 
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in
this  country as a civil servant,we are not allowed to operate a foriegn
account  and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of
transfer because I work in this bank,This is the actual reason why it
will  require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of
kin  with affidavit of trust of Oath to the bank and also
present a foriegn account where you will need the said money (USD$15.5,Million
UNTED STATE DOLLARS)to be transfered into, after due verification and
clarification to designated bank account.
 
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free,  On  smoth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of  the  total sum as ratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of  expenses that may arise during the time of transfer such as telephone  bills  etc, while 60% will be for me and my partners.
 
Please you have been  adviced  to keep top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from  service after we conclude this deal with you. I will be monitoring the  whole  situation here in the bank until you confirm the money in your account and  ask us to come down to your country for subsequent shearing of the fund  according to percentages previously indicated and further
investment, either  in your country or any other country  you  may  advice us to invest in.
 
All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from
you.I  suggest you get back to me as soon as possible, stating your wish in
this deal.
 
Yours
faithfully, 
 Mr USMAN  ABU
