The sender was Dr Amadu <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. I am the Secretary of Foreign Remittance Department, B.O.A Bank here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
I Hope 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 both families. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($16.7USD) million to your account within 14 banking days.
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 to our deceased customer, the owner of the account (Engr. Christian Eich) died along with his supposed next of kin in an air crash since July 31st 2000.
I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasurer as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why I contacted you so that the bank can release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer.
Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested. Upon receipt of your reply
I will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 45% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me. Waiting for your urgent reply. Best Regard,
Dr Amadu traore.
