Dear Friend,

How are you? My name is Mr Mohamed Ali, I hope that every things is ok with you as it is my great pleasure to contact you again in having communication with you, please I wish you will have the desire with me so that we can get to know each other better and see what happened in future.

I am contacting you with real sense of humanity which I hope that you will be there always for me as my Partner!! I got your contact from your country web-site, while surfing through internet that gives me an access to reach you. I am in a situation that required someone special, whom I can trust as a partner.

I am the manager of Auditing and Accounting department of Bank of Africa (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou , Burkina Faso . In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5m dollars (TEN MILION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany ) who died along with his entire family in July 2000 in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guiding and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I donât want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Fifteen years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of foreign account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application form that I will send to you when I hear from you, so I will like you to send to me your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application.

I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom offer as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive my letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Mr. Mohamed Ali
Yours Faithfully Manager.
