Dear Friend,
I am the head, audit and investigation department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A)I am writing to seek your assistance of a very urgent and confidential transaction. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of ($30M US dollars million US DOLLARS) ,in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died alongside his entire family in November 1999 in a plane crash involving Egyptian Airline flight 990.The link below contains information about the plane crash: .
This money is supposed to be claimed by the next of kin of the deceased customer as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you to  release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we do not want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after TEN years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an Ivoirian  cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60 % would be for ;me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted .
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer .
Please call me immediately as soon as you receive this letter on my private phone number ,(00225-06392769) for confirmation and further clarifications.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
NB: Please reply to my private email address ----- .
Yours faithfully,
Head Audit and Investigation Unit,
