Dear Friend,
Please read carefully,

I hope that you are well today.I am the Manager of Audit and account dept of our bank, with due 
respect i decided to contact you over this business financial transaction worth the sum of FIVE 
MILLION THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($5,300,000USD) in other to entrust this fund 
into your bank account.This is an abandoned fund that belongs to the one of our bank customers who 
died along with his entire family on 31 JAN,2005 in a plane crash disaster. I was very fortune to 
meet the deceased file when i was arranging the old and abandoned customers files of 2004-2005 in 
other to submit to the bank managements accordingly for documentation purposes. 

Following our banking financial policy, it was obviously indicated and signed law fully that if 
such money remains unclaimed after five years without somebody been a foreigner apply and claim the 
fund as the next of kin , the money will be transferred into the Bank Treasury as an unclaimed fund.

So the request of you as a foreigner is necessarily needed for the claim because a citizen of 
Burkina Faso cannot come forward to claim the fund since the law does not permit an indigence to 
claim such fund Since the real beneficiary of the fund is died , the bank are expecting the next of 
kin to apply for the release of the fund for him or her without delay but unfortunately i learnt 
through the investigations which I carried out that there is nobody behind who can come and claim 
the fund.

Therefore I want you to apply to the bank with your reliable bank account details where our bank 
will transfer the fund into and immediately the fund is transferred into your account ,i will share 
the fund according to the percentage indicated below.SIXTY PERCENT (60%) of the total fund will be 
for me.THIRTY PERCENT( 30%) for you in provision of the Bank account.FIVE PERCENT(5%) will be for 
unexpected expenses which may occur during the transfer.FIVE PERCENT(5%) will be preserved for 
helping the helpless people, like charity organization and motherless babies. Thereafter you will 
help me to visit your country for sharing the money according to the percentage indicated above.

And for the immediate transfer of this fund into your bank account as arranged, you must apply 
first to the bank as the only existing beneficiary to the deceased customer and after approval 
which will take place immediately as you applied, the transfer of the fund into your nominated bank 
account will proceed. 

Please note that you should keep this business secret until you confirm the transfer into the bank 
account which you will provide. And there is NO RISK in this transaction. The bank will forward to 
you all necessary documents related to the transfer and which will prove that you make a legal 
claim of inheritance.

It is true that i pray to GOD before i was pushed forward to contact you for this business but i 
want you to assure me solemnly that you are a trustworthy,reliable,honest and capable to avoid 
cheating me in this business.If you are really sure of your integrity,reply immediately you receive 
this mail for more detailed information on how the process to transfer the fund into your account 
will be.
