DEAR FRIEND, 
                      
I AM TIMOTHY OTIS, THE DIRECTOR IN CHARGE 
OF 
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING SECTION OF BANK OF AFRICA(BOA) BURKINA FASO IN 
WEST AFRICA WITH DUE RESPECT AND REGARDS. I HAVE DECIDED TO CONTACT YOU 
ON A BUSINESS TRANSACTION THAT WILL BE VERY BENEFICIAL TO BOTH OF US AT 
THE END OF THE TRANSACTION. 
 
DURING OUR INVESTIGATION AND 
AUDITING 
IN THIS BANK, MY DEPARTMENT CAME ACROSS A VERY HUGE SUM OF MONEY 
BELONGING TO A DECEASED PERSON WHO DIED ON 31ST OCTOBER 1999 IN A PLANE 
CRASH AND THE FUND HAS BEEN DORMANT IN HIS ACCOUNT WITH THIS BANK 
WITHOUT ANY CLAIM OF THE FUND IN OUR CUSTODY EITHER FROM HIS FAMILY OR 
RELATION BEFORE OUR DISCOVERY TO THIS DEVELOPMENT. 
 
ALTHOUGH 
PERSONALLY, I KEEP THIS INFORMATION SECRETWITHIN MYSELF AND PARTNERS TO 
ENABLE THE WHOLE PLANS AND IDEA BE PROFITABLE AND SUCCESSFUL DURING THE 
TIME OF EXECUTION. THE SAID AMOUNT WAS U.S $14.5M (FOURTEEN MILLION 
FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS). AS IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO 
KNOW, I GOT YOUR IMPRESSIVE INFORMATION THROUGH THE BURKINA FASO 
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ON FOREIGN BUSINESS RELATIONS HERE IN BURKINA 
FASO. 
 
MEANWHILE ALL THE WHOLE ARRANGEMENT TO PUT CLAIM OVER THIS 
FUND AS THE BONAFIDE NEXT OF KIN TO THE DECEASED, GET THE REQUIRED 
APPROVAL AND TRANSFER THIS MONEY TO A FOREIGN ACCOUNT HAS BEEN PUT IN 
PLACE AND DIRECTIVES AND NEEDED INFORMATION WILL BE RELAYED TO YOU AS 
SOON AS YOU INDICATE YOUR INTEREST AND WILLINGNESS TO ASSIST US AND 
ALSO BENEFIT YOUR SELF TO THIS GREAT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. 
 
IN FACT I 
COULD HAVE DONE THIS DEAL ALONE BUT BECAUSE OF MY POSITION IN THIS 
COUNTRY AS A CIVIL SERVANT(A BANKER),WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO OPERATE A 
FOREIGN ACCOUNT AND WOULD EVENTUALLY RAISE AN EYE BROW ON MY SIDE 
DURING THE TIME OF TRANSFER BECAUSE I WORK IN THIS BANK. 
 
THIS IS 
THE 
ACTUAL REASON WHY IT WILL REQUIRE A SECOND PARTY OR FELLOW WHO 
WILL FORWARD CLAIMS AS THE NEXT OF KIN WITH AFFIDAVIT OF TRUST OF OATH 
TO THE BANK AND ALSO PRESENT A FOREIGN ACCOUNT WHERE HE WILL NEED THE 
MONEY TO BE RE-TRANSFERRED INTO ON HIS REQUEST AS IT MAY BE AFTER DUE 
VERIFICATION AND CLARIFICATION BY THE CORRESPONDENT BRANCH OF THE BANK 
WHERE THE WHOLE MONEY WILL BE REMITTED FROM TO YOUR OWNDESIGNATION BANK 
ACCOUNT. 
 
I WILL NOT FAIL TO INFORM YOU THAT THIS TRANSACTION IS 
100% RISK FREE. ON SMOOTH CONCLUSION OF THIS TRANSACTION, YOU WILL BE 
ENTITLED TO 30% OF THE TOTAL SUM AS GRATIFICATION, WHILE 5% WILL BE SET 
ASIDE TO TAKE CARE OF EXPENSES THAT MAY ARISE DURING THE TIME OF 
TRANSFER AND ALSO TELEPHONE BILLS, WHILE 65% WILL BE FOR ME. PLEASE, 
YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED TO KEEP "TOP SECRET" AS I AM STILL IN SERVICE AND 
INTEND TO RETIRE FROM SERVICE AFTER WE CONCLUDE THIS DEAL WITH YOU. 
 
I WILL BE MONITORING THE WHOLE SITUATION HERE IN THIS BANK UNTIL YOU 
CONFIRM THE MONEY IN YOUR ACCOUNT AND ASK ME TO COME DOWN TO YOUR 
COUNTRY FOR SUBSEQUENT SHARING OF THE FUND ACCORDING TO PERCENTAGES 
PREVIOUSLY INDICATED AND FURTHER INVESTMENT, EITHER IN YOUR COUNTRY OR 
ANY COUNTRY YOU ADVICE ME TO INVEST IN. ALL OTHER NECESSARY VITAL 
INFORMATION WILL BE SENT TO YOU WHEN I HEAR FROM YOU. I LOOK FORWARD TO 
RECEIVE YOUR MAIL. YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY AS SOON AS YOU 
RECEIVE THIS LETTER THROUGH MY EMAIL ADDRESS:timothy_otis02@yahoo.co.uk
 
YOURS FAITHFULLY,
 
MR.TIMOTHY OTIS.
