FROM THE DESK OF MR MOHAMED MALAKI.
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING MANAGER.
BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A).
BANK WEBSITE: www.bkofafrica.net.
I am the manager of auditing and accounting department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina faso.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$6m dollar (Six Million US dollar)in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR.ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with his entire family on 31st July 2000 in a plane crash.
For more informations about the crash you can visit this site: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/859479.stm
Since we got information about his death, the bank have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it can not be release unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you,so that the money can be release to you as the next of kin orrelation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody will come for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed dormant fund.
The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after eleven years which is on july next year, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed dormant fund.
The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe like me can not stand as next of kin to a foreigner.I agreed that 25% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account ,10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 65% would be for me. Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.
Do contact me for easy and effective communication.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you the full details of the business.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Waiting to read from you immediately.
Mr Mohamed Malaki.
