Good day dear,                                        
I am the Manager of International Banking Department of Ecobank in Burkina-Faso, Ouagadougou Branch. Confidently, I am ready to share by 60/40 a free trouble deal of US$13.3 million with you if you cannot betray my trust on you. I helped the assassinated president of Guinea-Bissau , Joao Bernardo Vieira, to open a hidden corporate account with our bank in 2006, and he solely and secretly operated this account in the name of non-existing foreign company for his foreign investments without the knowledge of anyone around him until he was assassinated in 2009.
This money was placed in the account as a foreign company investment fund and after 6 months no one operated the account, so it became dormant. That is why no body will trace the fund at all.
Hence I am the only bank staff who knows the true status of the account and the deceased, therefore, your interest to apply as his foreign business associate will grant us the legal ground to lay claim and move the fund to your account without any trouble. The moment the fund is released to you, I will get over to your country for us to share it accordingly. If you are interested, reply with your full details so that i will send you all the information of the account for urgent application to claim it.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Yours Sincerely,
Dr. Cypyan Kabore
Manager, Ecobank.
