FROM MRS MALAMA DEMEYA.
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A)
Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso ( West Africa )
My Name is MRS MALAMA DEMEYA. I am a banker by profession. I hail from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, West Africa. My reason for contacting you is to transfer an abandoned $27, 200, 000.00 USD to your account. The fund has been deposited by Late (MR. PAUL LOUIS from Paris, France) who died along with his entire family in 6th December 2003 in Air 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 as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learn that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
I want to present you to the Bank as the Next of Kin/beneficiary of this fund
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 we donât want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I will not fail to bring to your notice 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, please treat this business with utmost confidentiality and you should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Please make sure you keep this transaction as your top secret and make it confidential till we receive the fund into the account that you will provide to the bank. Donât disclose it to any body, because the secrecy of this transaction is as well as the success of it.
I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and while 60% would be for me.
Further details of the transaction shall be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mail indicating your interest.
I am waiting to hear from you urgently.
MRS MALAMA DEMEYA.
