Dear Friend,

I am Mr ALLAN  RETSON the manager in charge of bill and exchange department ISLAMIC BANK OF AFRICA (I S B.O.A) In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15m US dollars ( fifteen million US dollars) , In  account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his wife on December 2006  In a Motor accident on their  way  travelling to one of our city name BOBO DIULASSO  . Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately I  learnt that his supposed next of kin  died  along with him  which is  his  wife  and from his  file my self  learnt  that none of  his  relation  know  about this  money  in our bank .

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you so that you and I will claim  this money since I have all the information related to this  money  in our bank also the deceased customer  because  know  body  is coming  for the  money as  his relation,   which you are going to stand as the deceased customerâs  business partner  for the  bank management  to  believe really  you are   his  business  partner  when they receive your application  I will send to you to apply  for the  transaction to  commence.


The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkina be can not stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I decided to make it that 50 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner, in  provision of a foreign account and stand fully  on this  claim as my  partner   50 % will be for me, the  money  will be shared  equally.

Then I will visit your country for sharing according to the percentages indicated, Therefore to enable the immediate processing   of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to our bank as business partner to the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted  

Upon your reply, I will send to you more details on how this transaction will be  executed.
