I appeal to you to exercise a little patient and read through my letter, I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship and investment assistance in your Country, i will really like to have a good relationship with you and I have a special reason why I decided to contact you.
My name is Mr Gabriel Zoure I am in the Office of Auditing and Accounting File Manager with Bank of Africa Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of (US$10M DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. RICHARD BURSON from Florida, U.S.A) who died along with his entire family on November 1999 in a plane crash.
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($10M USD) to your account within 7banking days, while every necessary arrangement should commence after I have hear from you.
This money has been dormant for years in our Bank without claim, and I don't want the money to go into the Reserve Bank of Burkina Faso (RBBF), as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why I contacted you so that the bank can release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer.
Please I would like you to keep this transfer as a top secret between me and you alone ok.
I promise you that i will direct you on how this transfer will go successfully if only you can abide to my instruction.Upon receipt of your reply i will give you full details on how the business will be executed.
Kindly send me this information below to have trust in you that you would betray me.

l will send you my details of this transaction as soon as I hear from you thanks, trusting to hear from you immediately with your contact information
