FROM MRS. ROSE PATRICK
HEAD OF FOREIGN OPERATION
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK
I am Mrs. Rose Patrick, the Head of Foreign Operation, holding the post of foreign and national inheritance funds in African development bank Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. I discovered existing dormant account for 5years. When I discovered that there had been neither continuation nor withdrawals from this account for this long period and our banking laws stipulates that any unserviceable account for more than 5years will go into the bank revenue as an unclaimed fund.
I have made personal inquiries about the depositor and his next of kin but sadly, the depositor and his next of kin died on their way to business trip, and he left no body behind for this claim, I only made this investigation just to be double sure of this fact and since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives information concerning this fund, I seek your concern for further assistance to stand as the real next of kin to the deceased person so that our bank will release the fund on your behalf.
Amount to claim US$25.200.000.00
Now my questions are:-
1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
If yes, call me and send to me your personal information as below:
Your name :....................
This information is necessary,
Upon the receipt of your reply, I will give you the full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 50% of the above mentioned sum as your own share while 50% will be for me, and both of us will handle the expenses that may arise in this transaction. I am expecting your urgent responses to enable me inform you on how the business will be executed. Please keep this proposal as a top secret or delete if you are not interested,
Mrs. Rose Patrick
