FROM MR.DIYARI BALAM
ASSISRANT MANAGER BILL AND EXCHANGE DEPT.
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB)
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO .
I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise, I got your contact address from the computerized search. My name is Mr,Diyari Balam I am the Bill and Exchange (assistant) Manager of Africa Development Bank Ouagadougou , Burkina Faso .
In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of Eighteen million three hundred thousand United State of American dollars (18.3MILLION USA DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr Marutan John Korovo from Jordan who died along with his family in air crash since 1997.
Since I got information about his death I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want the money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
Am contacting you because our deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as a next of kin to foreign customer. The banking guidelines stipulate that the fund should be transferred into the bank treasury after 13 years if nobody is coming for the claim. I have agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of your account for the transfer, 2% will be set aside for expenses that might occurred during the business and 58% would be for me, after which I shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage as indicated.
Please I would like you to keep this transaction confidential and as a top secret as you may wish to know that I'm still a civil servant. As soon as I receive your reply i will give you the full details of the transaction and is 100% risk free.
