I am Mr.Felix Jaime, Director allocation department of ECO BANK ,OUAGADOUGOU BRANCH BURKINA FASO.My office monitors and controls the affairs of all financial banking concerned with foreign claim payments.I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within our bank both on the local and international levels in line with foreign claim settlement. I have before me list of funds which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts unclaimed deposits and over-invoiced sum etc.
0n this note I wish to have a deal with you as regards to an unpaid fund. I have a file before me and the data are correct and un-tampered. As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits. I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions i received two days ago from the Foreign Debts Reconciliation Department to submit the list of payment reports / expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others, i have decided to remit a fund claim to you following my idea that we can have a deal/agreement and i am going to do this legally.
1. The sum of USD$15.5M only will be transfered into your account after the processing of all relevant legal documents with your name as the bonfide beneficiary. The transfer will be made by Draft or telegraphic Transfer T/T confirmable in 3 working days to your location.WE MUST FOLLOW THE BANK PROCEDURES.
2. This deal must be kept secret forever and all correspondence will be strictly by email / telephone calls for security purposes.
3. There should be no third parties as most problems associated with your fund release are caused by your agents or representatives.
If you AGREE with my conditions i advise you to send the following:
A: Your Full name and address
B: Your direct telephone number
And the transfer will commence without delay as i will proceed to fix your name on the payment schedule instantly to meet the three days mandate. I hope you don't reject this offer and have this fund transferred.MOTTO:"Good name is better than money.
Hope i can find in you a nice & reliable person, with this profitable proposal of $15.5Million US dollars. I wonder, if it's possible to achieve this transfer through You?
