Treat With Urgency (From: Dr.Stella ADANNE)
The Head of File and Auditing Department,
African Development Bank, Ouagadougou, Burkina-Faso (West Africa)
This message might meet you in utmost surprise, however, it's just my Urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction I am a banker by profession from Burkina Faso in West Africa and currently holding the post of director Auditing and accounting unit of the bank.
I have the opportunity of transferring the left over Funds ($8.3 million) of one of my bank clients (MR. PAUL LOUIS from Paris, France) who died altogether with his entire family in a plane crash as you can see:(http://newswww.bbc.net.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/oxfordshire/4537663 stm ) therefore, I urgently need your assistance to transfer and secure the said fund into your bank account for onward and investment in your country.
Meanwhile the World Bank Group has mandated the AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK Ouagadougou, Burkina-Faso (West Africa) to release this unclaimed fund immediately when the next of kin is discovered with due application. This payment will be effected through Swift Telegraphic Transfer in conjunction with the support of the World Bank.
Your Urgent response is needed for immediate transfer of this fund IN TO YOUR RECEIVING BANK ACCOUNT. Hence, I am inviting you for a business deal where this money can be shared between us in the ratio of 60 for me / 35 for your assistance while 5% will be mapped out for expenses.
As an experience banker am sure that there will be expenses in the course of this transaction so as to reduce the burden on only a single person, any expenses in the course of this deal will be taking care by both of us before the fund can be transfer into your account in your country.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in.
Please, you have been advised to keep "top secret" As a deal, I make haste to advise that you should be private about it as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. I want to emphasize here that this deal is 100% free from any form of risk from both parties as great care has been exercised in perfecting it, and therefore, I enjoin you to approach it with an open mind and without any fear whatsoever.
Finally, further details of the transfer will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mail. And also promise me that you will not disappoint me when this fund hits your account.
Dr. Stella ADANNE.
