Of Bank BCB Burkina, I got your contact through Burkina Faso information network online services, I know that this message will be a surprise to you and it is coming to you with good intention which will be of mutual benefit for both of us.

   Mr. Andreas 
 Schranner, his wife Maria, their daughter Eich and husband Christian and two children perished in the air France Concorde New York bound flight; please click here
 Since we got information about his death, there is nobody to  stand as his next of kin to  come over and claim his money because the bank cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and Subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill and it will not be augur well for the fund to be
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money
 Remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be  transferred into the Bank treasure as unclaimed fund.
The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by
the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand
as next of kin to a foreigner. 50 % of this money will be for you as
 Foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 50 % would be for me. There after I will visit your  country for disbursement
 according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate
 transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased.

of the application which you will
 fill and send to the office of the
 Director Foreign Remittance Department, I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements and information's are on my desk.
 You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter 
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
