Greetings from Paul Allassan,
Dear friend, I am PAUL ALLASSAN. THE MANAGER, AUDIT AND ACCOUNTING DEPT. BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
I hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our families.
I need your urgent assistance in transferring sum of (USD$18.700, 000) into your account within 10 to 14 banking days. This requires a private arrangement; the details of the transaction will be furnished to you if you indicate your interest in this proposal.
This money has been dormant for years in our bank without claim, I want the bank to release the money to you as the nearest person (owner of the account) who died along with his entire family during the Iraq war in 2006
I don't want the money to go into our bank treasurer account as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why i contact you so that the bank will release the money to you as the next of kin to the death customer and we share the money together. Please i would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will give you full details on how the business project will be executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum.
