My Name is Mr. Musa Aliu

I am the auditor and head of computing department of the Banque Internationale du Burkina BIB (membre de UBA) Burkina Faso.

There is an account opened in this bank in 2004 and since my inception into office on 14th April 2011, I then found this account and when I investigated deeply by contacting the assigned next of kin I also found that the next of kin to this account was from Ireland who lived in Burkina Faso for over 43Yrs and nobody has operated on this account again after 2008. I took the courage to look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important transaction. In order to transfer out $7,400,000 (Seven Million Four Hundred U.S Dollars) After going through some old files, I discovered that if I do not Remit this money out urgently, it will be forfeited for nothing and the Banque Internationale du Burkina BIB management might divert the funds to their own accounts.

Please respond immediately I will use my position and influence to effect the legal approval and onward transfer of this fund into your account with appropriate clearance from foreign payment department. You will stand to get 50% while 50% will be for me. Kindly quote the reference (acct) numbers above when responding to this mail.

I will fill you in with further details upon your reply .You can reach me with my Telephone number so that we can discuss more on how to transfer this funds to your designated account in your country . Call me on this number +22678975440

Sincerely yours,

Mr. Musa Aliu
