It will be a surprise for you to receive this mail. Welcome this letter in
the name of God I am Mr Daniel Mohka, the director of the account & auditing
dept, at the African Development Bank (ADB) Ouagadougou Burkina Faso West
Africa. With due respect, I have decided to contact you on a business
transaction that will be beneficial to both of us.
At the bank's last account/auditing evaluations, I came across an old
account which was being maintained by a foreign client who we learnt died on a
sudden motor accident along Togo road on his way back to Burkina Faso with his
entire family his wife and his only child on 6th Nov. 2003.
Since the deceased was unable to run this account since his death. The
account has remained dormant without the knowledge of his family since it was
put in a safe deposit account in the bank for future investment by the client.
Since his demise, nobody, not even the members of his family have applied for
claims over this fund and it has been in the safe deposit account until I
discovered that. it cannot be claimed since our client is a foreign national and we are sure that he has no next of kin here to file claims over the money. As the director of the dept, this discovery was brought to my office so as to
decide what is to be done.
With the few personnel in my dept, I decided to seek ways through which
totransfer this money out of the bank and out of the country too.
The total amount in the accounts is Five Million Five Hundred Thousand Us
Dollars only($5.5m,)with our positions as a staff of the bank, I am handicapped
because I cannot operate foreign accounts and cannot lay bonafide claim over
this money. while contemplating on what to do, I came across your email contact
in the internet directory and I decided to ask you for help to transfer this
money out of the country to your account in your country .the client is a
foreign national and you will only be asked to act as his next of kin or
business partner. I will supply you with all necessary information and bank data to assist you in being able to transfer this money to any bank of your choice where this money could be transferred to.
I have decided to give away forty %( 40%) to you for your assistance and
ten (10%) for any expenses that might arise during the transaction of this
I want to assure you that this transaction is absolutely 100% guarantee
since I work in this bank which is why you should be confident in the success of this transaction because you will be updated with information as at when
I will please wish you keep this transaction secret as I am hoping to
retire with my share of this money at the end of transaction which will be when
this money is safely in your account. I will then come over to your country for
sharing of the money according to the previous agreed percentage. You might even have to advise us on possibilities of investment in your country or elsewhere of our choice. May god help you to help me to a restive retirement, Amen.
I am waiting for your urgent response!!!
Thanks and remain blessed.
Mr Daniel Mohka.
