e deceased file when i was arranging the old and abandoned customers files =
of 2000-2001 in other to submit to the bank managements accordingly for doc=
umentation purposes. Following our banking financial policy, it was obvious=
ly indicated and signed law fully that if such money remains unclaimed afte=
r five years without somebody been a foreigner apply and claim the fund as =
the next of kin , the money will be transferred into the Bank Treasury as a=
n unclaimed fund. So the request of you as a foreigner is necessarily neede=
d for the claim because a citizen of Burkina Faso cannot come forward to cl=
aim the fund since the law does not permit an indigene to claim such fund S=
ince the real beneficary of the fund is died , the bank are expecting the n=
ext of kin to apply for the release of the fund for him or her without dela=
y but unfortunately i learnt through the investigations which I carried out=
 that there is nobody behind who can come and claim the fund. <BR>&nbsp;<BR=
Therefore I want you to apply to the bank with your reliable bank account =
details where our bank will transfer the fund into and immediately the fund=
 is transferred into your account ,i will share the fund according to the p=
ercentage indicated below. SIXTY PERCENT (60%) of the total fund will be fo=
r me.THIRTY PERCENT( 30%) for you in provision of the Bank account.FIVE PER=
CENT(5%) will be for unexpected expenses which may occur during the transfe=
r.FIVE PERCENT(5%) will be preserved for helping the helpless people, like =
charity organization and motherless babies. Thereafter you will help me to =
visit your country for sharing the money according to the percentage indica=
ted above. And for the immediate transfer of this fund into your bank accou=
nt as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as the only existing next =
of kin to the deceased customer and after approval which will take place im=
mediately as you applied, the transfer of the fund into your nominated bank=
 account will proceed. Please note that you should keep this business secre=
t until you confirm the transfer into the bank account which you will provi=
de. And there is NO RISK in this business if you can follow my instructions=
 because am still working with the bank. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>The bank will forwar=
d to you all necessary documents related to the transfer and which will pro=
ve that you make a legal claim of inheritance. It is true that i pray to GO=
D before i was pushed forward to contact you for this business but i want y=
