This letter may come to you as a big surprise, please accept my apology for sending you unsolicited mail and please kindly delete this message from your mail box if you are not interested, i am Mr. Ibrahim Toure Currently the Auditing and Accounting Unit Manager with a reputable bank here in Burkina Faso Bank of Africa (BOA).
I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that i can trust you with the information i am about to reveal to you, the Business i am proposing you is in respect of the sum of $17,300,000.00(Seventeen Million Three hundred Thousand U.S Dollars only) belonged to one of our deceased customer who unfortunately lost his life in a plane crash along with his entire family, since his death my bank has made several efforts in contacting the family of the deceased or his relatives but all effort have proved abortive as he had no identifiable kin's men. This sum of $17.3million has remained unclaimed ever since then and nobody has come forward as his next of kin.
The management under the influence of our chairman and member of the board of Directors has made an arrangement for the fund to be declared unclaimable and subsequently be turned to the reserve account of the bank, it is against the background of the foregoing that i have decided to contact you for assistance and partnership for you to stand as the next of kin to the late customer because we cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next of kin to the deceased customer as indicated in our banking guidelines.
With your permission this fund will be transferred to your private or company account abroad as the beneficiary and next of kin to the deceased customer all proof of claim and necessary documentation will be carefully worked out in your favour and i assure you of 100% risk free involvement and protection consequently, if you find this proposal acceptable to you and you wish to assist me.
I expect your urgent response, Note that upon the transfer of this fund into your account i shall be compensating you with 40% as your share in respect of the account provision and your assistance rendered during the transfer of the fund into your account, 50% will be my share being the coordinator and the pillar of the transaction while the rest 10% will be maped out for any expenses that may occur during the transfer process.
Please endeavour to include your full name and address, private phone and fax number for our easy communication.
Please keep our dealings very private and confidential as i await your urgent response.
