Attention Please,

I am Dr Hassan Dantata, the Director in charge of 
Auditing and Accounting section of AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (A.D.B) 
Ouagadougou Burkina-faso West Africa. With due respect and regard. 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 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.

The said amount 
was U.S 7.5M (Seven Million,Five Hundred Thousand United States 
Dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive 
information through internet directory while i was searching for a 
foreign partner who can join hand with me so that we can pull the fund 
out from the bank. 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, 
and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.

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 own designation 
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 10% will be 
set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of 
transfer and also telephone and internet bills, while 60% will be for 
me and my coleagues. Please, you have been adviced 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 us to invest in. All 
other necessary vital nformation will be sent to you when I hear from 

I look forward to receive your phone and fax numbers for easy 

Yours faithfully,

Dr Hassan Dantata
