I am Dr KOMI ZONGO, a banker with the above mentioned bank in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso in West Africa, holding the post of the Audit & Accounts dept. On December, 25, 2007, one Mr. Sallah Khatif,a Lebanese Nationality, An Astute Business man of international repute, a contract with ecowas country, whose endeavors spans various areas of Business interest, (Real estate, contract and Farming .etc) made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at $17.5 MIllion USD (seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) for twelve calendar months in my Bank Branch.
Upon Maturity, we 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 company that Mr.Sallah Khatif. was aboard the AF4590 plane, which crashed December, 25 2006. After further investigation, it was discovered that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin proved fruitless. On further investigation, it was discovered that Late Mr.Sallah Khatif , did not declare any next of kin or relatives in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work here in our Bank. The total sum, $17.5M is still in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. All efforts to trace and locate his next of kin proved abortive.
In accordance with the country's banking laws and constitution guiding this banking institution stated that after the expiration of 6 years, if no body or person comes for the claim as the next of kin , such money will be revert to the Burkina Faso government treasury if nobody applies as the next of Kin to claim of the fund. Consequently, It is upon this respect, I seek to present you as a foreign partner to stand in as the next of kin to the late Mr. Sallah Khatif, since no one will come up for the claim.
Upon acceptance of this proposal, I shall send to you by mail the A.D.B. Bank "Next of Kin Payment Application Text Form" as well as detailed information on how this business would be carried out. And you will be in position of 40% after the deal is done while 10% will be to pay back any expences we both make before the fund hits into your account and 50% will be for me and other of my collegues which i will settle after we have concluded, I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, as I will use my position in the Bank here to perfect this business transaction & secure Approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.
