Dear Friend,

I am Mr Amos Zongo, a banker with the above mentioned bank in Ouagadougou 
Burkina Faso in West Africa, holding the post of the Audit & Accounts dept. 
On Monday, 31 July, 2000, one Andreas Schranner, a German National, An 
Astute Business man of international repute, a contract with ecowas country, 
whose endeavours spans various areas of Business interest, (Real estate, 
contract and Farming .etc) made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit, valued at 
$10,600,000.00 (Ten Million, Six Hundred thousand United States Dollars) for 
twelve calendar months in my Bank Branch.

Upon Maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but 
got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered 
from his company that Mr. Andreas Schranner was aboard the AF4590 plane, 
which crashed Monday, 31 July 2000 into the Hotelissimo.

After further investigation, it was discovered that he died without making a 
WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin proved fruitless.

On further investigation, it was discovered that Late Mr. Andreas Schranner 
did not declare any next of kin or relatives in all his official documents, 
including his Bank Deposit paper work here in our Bank. The total sum, 
$10,600,000.00 is still in my bank and the interest is being rolled over 
with the principal sum at the end of each year. All efforts to trace and 
locate his next of kin proved abortive.

In accordance with the country’s  banking laws and constitution guiding this 
banking institution stated that  after  the expiration of 5 (five) years, if 
no body or person comes for the claim as the next of kin , such  money will 
be revert to the Burkina Faso government  treasury if nobody applies as the 
next of Kin to claim of the fund. Consequently, It is upon this respect, I 
seek to present you as a foreign partner to stand in as the next of kin to 
the late Mr. Andreas Schranner since no one will come up for the claim.

Upon acceptance of this proposal, I shall send to you by mail the ASB Bank 
"Next of Kin Payment Application Text Form" as well as detailed information 
on how this deal would be carried out.

The money will be shared in the ratio: Sixty percent for me, thirty percent 
for you and ten percent for any arising contingencies during the Course of 
this transaction. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate 
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, as I will use 
my position in the Bank's here to perfect this business transaction & secure 
Approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction.

Please be informed that your utmost confidentiality is required. If this 
interests you, I want to remind you of the confidentiality of this 
Transaction at hand whatever your decision is.

I await your urgent response. Your detailed reply should contain your 
telephone and fax numbers for easier communication for onward proceeding.
