PLANE CRASH WEB SITE
( "REMITTANCE OF $ 7 SEVEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS U.S.A
CONFIDENTIAL IS THE CASE")
Compliment Of The Season,
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we never meet before,when i was searching for a foreign partner i assured of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity when i prayed to God or Allah about you.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 7 million U.S.A dollars ( SEVEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS U.S.A dollars Only) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer MR SALLA KHATIF who died along with his entire family on (friday december 25TH,2003)in a plane 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 it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided to make this businness 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 dont want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after ten years,
the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by thefact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 50 % would be for me, Therefore after I and my family will visit you in your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to your notice that 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.
