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.
