 From The Desk of Mr. Abdullatif Barrakar 
The Auditing And Accounting Manager
United Bank For Africa (UBA).
Ouagadougou-Burkina Faso. 

I am aware that this is certainly an unconventional approach to starting a relationship. 
I am Mr. Abdullatif barrakar , the personal account officer of late Mr. Werner Karl who has 
an account in one of our banks here in Burkina Faso . 
The account was opened in 2004 and he died in 2009 without a written WILL and since 
2009 nobody has operated on this account again, 
hence the money has been floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently,
the Government of Burkina Faso will confisticate the funds for their personal use 
which I personally don't want such incident to happen, 
being that this is a great opportunity for me, I now contact you for assistance 
to transfer the fund (euro 10.500.000 )Ten Million five Hundred Thousand euro from 
a Cooperate Bank here in Burkina Faso to an overseas account. First, 
I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of 
its nature as being utterly confidential.  
I solicit your assistance to enable my bank transfer the said amount into your 
safe account for onward investment.

As long as you will remain honest to me till the end of this important business trusting in 
You and believing that you will never let me down either now or in future because this business is 
my life. 
The owner of this account is a foreigner and no other person knows about this account 
Or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and until his death he was 
The manager of the company. My investigation through the National immigration department 
& Ministries here proved to me as well that he was single as at the time of his entry into the 
Republic of Burkina Faso. As a matter of fact, I have decided to transfer this fund abroad 
for investment and also to use my own share of the fund to take my wife to abroad for liver damage 
treatment. Your assistance as a foreigner is necessary because the management of the bank 
will welcome any foreigner who has correct information to this account which I will give to 
you immediately, if you are interested to do this business with me. There is no risk in this 
With my position here in the bank the money can be transferred to any account you can provide with 
assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. 
Upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, I am only contacting you as 
a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local indigene here, but can only be 
to any foreigner who has the correct information of the account, which I will provide for you.
 At the conclusion of the transfer you will take 40%, and the remaining 60% will be for me. 
As soon as I hear from you and upon your strong assurance that you will not let me down 
once the fund goes into your account I will then send you the Text of application form which you
will fill with your banking information and send to my bank here for immediate transfer of the fund 
 your account. If you are interested, please forward the following information as below: 

{1} Your full Name and  address,
