Dear friend, My name is Mr Adama Zongo. I'm working with one of the prime bank here in Burkina Faso. Here in this bank existed a dormant account for many years, belonging to one of our foreign customer late. When I discovered that there had been no deposits or withdrawals from this account for this period of time, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that none of the family members or relations of the late person is aware of this account, which means that no one comes to take it. The amount of this account is $ 13, 300,000.00 (thirteen million three hundred thousand U.S. dollars). I want an account overseas where the bank will transfer this fund. I will face you in the bank as its own law to end customers and backing you with relevant information. What they need most is a bench test and customer information that'll help later on. This is a genuine transaction, risk free and legal business. All information will be sent as soon as I hear from you. The information contained in this document is granted urgently needed care, and the secrecy it deserves. If you are really sure of your integrity, trust and confidentiality, reply back to me urgently. Best regards, Mr Adama Zongo.
