FROM MR WILLIAM BARRY
SECRETARY MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICA(BOA)
OUAGADOUGOU ,
BURKINA FASO .
 
ATTN: PLEASE!
Greeting to you!!!
                STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND SECRECY
I know that this email will come to you as a surprise and I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that Iâm about to repose on you for mutual benefits of our families. I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of Bank of Africa Burkina Faso.
 
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($8.2USD) eight million two hundred thousand United States dollars to your account within fourteen banking days. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of ($8.2USD) eight million two hundred thousand United States dollars. In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died without any nomination of the next of kin to the bank, 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 in our banking policies but unfortunately for years now non of his relations has applied for the claim..
 
It is therefore upon this discovery that I 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.
 
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. I have agreed that 40 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 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 indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication.
 
Upon the receipt of your reply, at
mr.williambarry@gmail.com
I will give you full details on how the business will be executed. Please kindly contact me as soon as you receive this proposal.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
