I am Mr. Dorso Sandwidi from Burkina Faso in West African region. I work with the bank of Africa 
here in the nation. I am writing you from my office that which will be of an immense benefit to 
both of us. In my department, being the account manager I discovered an abandoned sum of $18 
million USA Dollars (Eighteen million Us Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of the bank 
late foreign customers, a German citizen who unfortunately lost his life in a plane crash.

The choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature of where you live, 
particularly due to the senility of the transaction and the confidentiality herein. Now our bank 
has been waiting for any of the relatives to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that. I 
personally have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for many years now, I seek your consent 
to present you as the next of kin / beneficiary to the deceased so that the proceeds of this 
account valued at 18 Million Dollars can be done and paid to you for both of us.

This will be disbursed or shared between the both of us in these percentages, 55% to me and 35% to 
you while 10% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of 
transferring. I have secured necessary informationís and the certificate of deposit that can be 
used to back up this claim we are making.

All I require now is your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality and trust to enable us sees this 
transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that 
will protect you from any breach of the law.

Having gone through a methodical search, I decided to contact you hoping that you will find this 
proposal interesting. Please on your confirmation of this message and indicating your interest, I 
will furnish you with more information.

Endeavour to let me know your decision rather than to keep me waiting or exposing me.


Mr. Dorso Sandwidi
