FROM THE MANAGER FOREIGN REMITTANCE
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) BURKINA FASO.
I am Mr James Jamal, the manager in charge of the auditing and accounting section of Bank of Africa(BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso West Africa.Please i want you to read this letter very carefully,though we never see nor met before but i beleive that you
can assist me following the content of this letter.
Also,i hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i am about to establish with you for the mutual benefit of our
families.I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of U.S $20.5M(Twenty million five hundred thousand US dollars).
During our investigation and auditing in our bank, my department came across this huge sum of money belonging to one of our customer who died with his wife and their only daughter on 31 July 2000 in a plane crash. Ever since then, the fund has been dormant
in his account without any claim.
With proper arrangement,I want our bank to release this funds to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer while i come over to your country immediately for the sharing of the money with you as soon as the money is confirmed into your provided bank account.
I don't want this money to go into our bank treasury as an abandoned fund, so this is the reason i contacted you so that our bank will release this money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer. Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested.As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through the international business contact search.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party to forward claims to this deposited fund as the next of kin to the deceased.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sum as gratification, while 55% will be for me as the founder of the deal, then 10% will be for expenses.All other necessary informations following how the transaction will be carried out shall be sent to you once i hear from you.
I will be expecting to hear from you with some of your details like:
Your full name........ ...........
Private E-mail ......... .......
Your Phone Number........
