Dear Friend,

I am the bill and exchange manager at the foreign remittance department in bank of African(B.O A) I got your email address while searching for trustworthy countries and individuals and reply to my alternative email address below ok.

In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of $25M TWENTY FIVE million US dollar In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family on Monday, 31 July, 2000 in accidental plane crash since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated acted in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his suppose next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

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 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 un clamed after NINE 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 nest of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner,in respect to the provision of a foreign account,and 60% would be for me and there after I and my wife with my children 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 decease indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply with those following information of yours, I will send to you by email the text of the application. 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 have been made for the transfer trusting to hear from you soonest possible.
