FROM MR. Emma Akin
Dear Friend

Listen attentively;  this is important information and I would like you to read this letter very carefully and reply. Firstly, my name is Mr. Emmanuel Akin, auditing and accounting manager; foreign remittance department of bank of Africa management Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.

I got your contact from the internet division of chamber under business relation here in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. I am searching for trust worthy person who will assist me to implement this urgent transfer. l discovered the sum of Ten Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (USD$10.6M) belonging to a Lebaneseâs Man; a deceased customer of this bank. The fund has been lying in a suspense account without anybody coming to put claim over the money since the death of account owner who was involved in the December 25th  2003 Benin plane crash.

Listen very carefully, since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim the total sum because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately I learnt that all his supposed 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 last month that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release all the information and documentations to you as the next of kin 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 banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after 10 years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury 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 next of kin to him. I therefore solicit for your assistance to come forward as the next of kin. I have agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as the beneficiary in respect of the provision of your Account and services rendered, 55% would be for me while 5% will be for expenses incurred during the cause of this transaction If the money is transferred to your Account from {BANK OF AFRICA} management, I personally will come immediately to your country for my own share of the money as soon as you confirmed the total sum in your bank account. I expect you to keep this business strictly confidential and secret as you may wish to know that I am Bank official here with my position. Be rest assured that this business is 100% risk free on both side and every arrangement to transfer this money to the Account you are going to provide have been concluded provided we maintain the confidentiality and secrecy involved.
Upon your acceptance to do this deal with me the blow information is needed.
Your full name.....
Your date of birth.........

Yours faithfully,
