In this country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate aforeign account. This is the actual reason why itwill require a second partyor fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank and alsopresent a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred
into on his request.Our Banking law stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after ten years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimedfund.The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin. I dont want this money to go into the Bank treasury asunclaimed Bill. Be assured this transaction is 100% risk free.
On conclusion of this Project, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sumas gratification,while 60% will be for me. AND the rest of the 5% will be forany expenses that we may occur during this transaction.
