àéDear Good Friend,
I presumed that all is well with you and your family. Please let this not be a surprised message to you because i got your contact information from the international directory few weeks ago before i decided to contact you on this magnitude and lucrative transaction for our present and future survival in life. Moreover, I have laid all the solemn trust in you before i decided to disclose this successful and confidential transaction to you.
I am the senior auditor in charge of foreign remittance unit of our bank and i decided to contact you for this financial transaction worth (Five million three hundred thousand us dollars) (5.3m) for our present and future success. This is an abandoned fund that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family through plane crash few years ago.
Meanwhile, I was very fortunate to come across the deceased file when i was arranging the old and abandoned customers files in other to sign and submit to the entire bank management for an official re documentation and audit of the year.
It was clearly stated in our foreign banking rules and regulations which was signed lawfully that if such fund remains unclaimed till the period of four years started from the date the beneficiary died, the money will be transferred into the treasury as unclaimed fund however, it is not authorizes by the rules guiding our bank for a citizen of Burkina Faso to make the claim of the fund unless you are a foreigner no matter the country.
So the request of you as a foreigner is necessary to apply for the claim and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable bank account as the next of kin to the deceased. when the fund is transferred into your account 45% will be for you in respect of all your assistance for the transfer of the fund into your account and provision of the bank account where the bank will remit the fund, 50% will be for me being the pioneer of the business while the rest 5% will be shared to respectable organisations such as charity and the destitute homes around us in the world.
If you are really sure of your trustworthiness, accountability and confidentiality on this transaction contact me and accept not to change your mind to cheat or disappoint me when the fund is transferred into your account. So reply for the assurance with your telephone and fax numbers to facilitate easy communication, as soon as you reply, i will let you know the next step and procedure to follow in order to finalize this transaction successfully.
I expect your urgent communication.
