Dear Friend,

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance Department of BANK OF Africa (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Inmy department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$ 27.5 Million dollars in anaccount that belongs to one of our foreign Customer (MR. PAUL LOUIS from Paris , France) who died along with His entire family in July 2003 in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death we have been expecting his Next of kinto come over and claim his money because we cannot release it Unless some bodyapplies for it as next of kin or relation to the Deceased as indicated in ourbanking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposednext of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leavingnobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this businessproposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation tothe deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming forit and we donât want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money Remained Unclaimed  nine years, the money will be transferred into thebank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in thistransfer is unquestionable by the fact that the customer was a Foreigner and aBurkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the Provision ofa foreign account, and 60% would be for me Thereafter, I Will visit yourcountry for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, toenable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged, you must applyfirst to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating yourbank name, your bank account number, your Private telephone and fax number foreasy and effective communication And location where in the money will beremitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email thetext of the application.
