Dear friend 

with due respect to your person and much sincerity of purpose, I make this contact with you as I 
believe that you can be of great assistance to me. I am from Ouagadougou Republic of BURKINA FASO, 
West Africa. Presently I work in Bank as telex manager. I have been searching for your contact 
since you left our country some years ago but I do not know whether this is your correct email 
address or not, I only used your name initials to search for your contact.

Therefore, In case you are not the person I am supposed to contact, please see this as a 
confidential message and do not reveal it to another person but if you are not the intended 
receiver, do let me know whether you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is 
top secret.

Meanwhile, I am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new life but I am sceptical to 
reveal this particular secret to a stranger. You must assure me that everything will be handled 
confidentially because we are not going to suffer again in life. It has been 10 years now that most 
of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas through the help of their 
Political advisers.

Most of the funds which they transferred out to offshore were gold and oil money that was supposed 
to have been used to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts 
before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds 
hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts 
used for such transfers were being closed after transfer.

I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using 
me to succeed in their greedy act; I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files 
and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over 
$5b Dollars during the process .As I am sending this message to you, I was able to divert thirty 
five million united state dollars ($35m) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank, The 
bank is anxious now to know who the beneficiary to the funds is because they have made a lot of 
profits with the funds. 

It is more than Eight years now and most of the politicians are no longer using our bank to 
transfer funds overseas. The ($35) Million Dollars has been laying wasting but I don't want to 
retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account to enable me share 
proceeds and money with the receiver. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you, there is 
no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured everything.

I only want you to assist me by providing a bank account where the funds can be transferred. You 
are not to face any difficulties or legal implications as I am going to handle the transfer 
personally. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me give 
you DETAILED information on what to do. For me, I have not stolen the money from anyone because the 
other people that took the whole money did not face any problems. This is my chance also to grab my 
own but you must keep the details of the funds secret to avoid any leakages as no one in the bank 
knows about the funds, Please get back to me if you are interested and capable to handle this 
project. If you are capable of being my trusted associate, do declare your consent to me. I am 
waiting your urgent response.

Yours Faithfully,
