might meet you in utmost surprise, However, Its just my urgent need for a
foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction, I am Mr Salam Dawa. Personal Assistant Manager of
African Development Bank (BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. I want to inquire from
you if you can handle this transaction for mutual benefits/life opportunity for
you and me. The transaction is about seeking your consent to present you as the
next of kin/ beneficiary of the US$5.6 Million Dollars,( Five Million, Six
Hundred Thousand United State Dollars), and who is a customer to the bank where
He was involved in the december 26th 2003 Benin plane crash in West
Africa, with his family during their vacation journey. The Fund is
currently in a suspense account awaiting claim, the bank made a public notice
that they are ready to release this fund to any of his relatives abroad.
Therefore, by virtue of its nature as being utterly
CONFIDENTIAL, top secret should be maintained please!,because i am still in the
active service i do not need any form of implication especially now I'm in the
verge of my retirement to endanger my career at last.
Since we got the 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 guidelines and laws.
In that regard, i decided to seek your consent for
this prospective opportunity. Have it at the back of your mind, that the
transaction does not involve any RISK, and does not need much engagement from
you, since i am familiar with this kind of transaction being an insider.
Necessary modalities will be worked out to enable us
carry out the fund claim under a legitimate arrangement. I have resolved to
offer you 30% of the total fund, 10% for sundry expenses that may be incurred
during the process of executing this transaction and 60% percent for me.
I will give you more details about the transaction
when I receive your affirmative response, more clarification information.
Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if
you are not interested.
I look forward to your earliest response
Regards and thanks,
NOTE:Your discussion regarding to this transaction
should be limited, because am still in Active service. Let honesty and trust be
our watchwords throughout this transaction. And your Prompt reply will be
