FROM THE DESK OF MR. FRANCIS SAYUBA.
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)
My Dear Friend,
Compliments! I got your contact through my personal search on the web, for someone I could really trust. I wish to express my interest to handle this matter with you as I believe that you can handle this type of international transaction. Though we have not met before but I believe one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life but however is not mandatory or in any manner compel you to honor against your will. Although I am not suppose to contact you through email but it is because of the confidential nature of this transaction please bear with me.
I am Mr. Francis Sayuba, the auditing and accounting manager Bank of Africa, (BURKINA FASO). I am writing this letter to ask for your support and co-operation to carry out this business opportunity in my department. On June 6, 2001/2002, an Oil consultant/contractor with Dubai Petroleum Corporation/CPL oil cooperation in Iran/CPL Burkina Faso, Mr. David Ameeraly, made a numbered time (fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at USD $12, 000.000.00 (Twelve Million United States Dollars Only) in Bank of Africa Burkina Faso. Upon maturity I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Dubai Petroleum Corporation that Mr. David Ameeraly was killed with his family during the Iranian civil war in August 14, 2003 by the Iranian militants.
On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. David Ameeraly, did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his bank deposit paperwork in this bank. This sum of USD $12, 000, 000.00 and the interest are being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it, and according to BURKINA FASO LAW, at the expiration of (TEN) years, the money will be revert to the ownership of the BURKINA FASO Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
My proposal is that I will like you to stand as the next of kin to Mr. David Ameeraly, so that the fruit of this old man labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt Government officials. This is simple; I will like you to provide immediately your full name and address, so that I can forward to you the contact of our bank attorney for preparing the necessary deceased inheritance documents, which will put you in place as the next of kin. Any bank account in any part of the world, which you will provide, will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in ratio of 45% for me and 45% for you and 10 % will be set aside for expenses in cured during the business. There is no risk at all.
The paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney legally and my position guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately and upon your responses, I shall provide you with more details and relevant information that will help you understands the transaction. Please observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us, because I shall require your assistance to invest with my share in your country.

1. Your Full Names:
2. Phone and Fax Number:
3. Complete address:
