From the desk of Dr.Malik Razzaq

Bank of Africa (BOA)
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso
I crave your indulgence for the unsolicited nature of this letter, but it was borne out of desperation and current development. Please bear with me. My name is Dr.Malik Razzaq an auditor of Bank of Africa (BOA) I discovered existing dormant account in our bank.
When I discovered that there had been neither continuation nor withdrawals from this account for a long period and our banking laws stipulates that any unserviceable account for more than 12years will go into the bank revenue as an unclaimed fund.
I have made personal inquiries about the depositor and his next of kin but sadly, the depositor and his next of kin died along with his entire family in a plane crash and he left no body behind for this claim I only made this investigation just to be double sure of this fact and since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives.
I seek your consent to present yourself as the next of kin of the deceased. as an auditor in the bank I will use my position in the bank to help you becoming the next of kin to the estate, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $25.5m dollars (Twenty Five Million, Five hundred thousand USD) can be transferred to you, this is the story in a nutshell.
Now I want an account over seas where the bank will transfer this fund. Thereafter, I will come for the sharing and investment, also to use part of the money to help the Orphanage around your country and the world in particular. I therefore agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreigner partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Now my questions are:-
1. Can you handle this project?.......
