USMAN HASSAN Good day and Compliments,I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me,God almighty will bless and reward you aboundantly and you would never regret this. I am MR.USMAN HASSAN,the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of International Bank Of Africa (IBA) 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.I came across a very huge sum of money belonging to MR.BUD STEWART,who died on 10th of May,2001 in a Car Crash with his wife-TESSA,and his only two children-CHUCK and CLARK,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 US$5.2M (Five Million Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars).Honestly,after this man died with his family my Bank (iba) searched for his next of kin to come and claim his money but they were no where to be found.Infact,nobody came up to claim the fund. I in my department,have decided to look for a trusted foreign partner who can stand in as the next of kin to the deceased and claim this money,as well as providing Bank account for the remittance of the fund.As it may interest you to know,I got your Contact through your Country Email Directory on Internet. Please don't say that you did not relate to the deceased because not relating to him makes no meaning,You must not be a blood relation before you become next of kin to somebody.All though i know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried,but i am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. 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 me 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 own designation bank account. I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free.On smooth conclusion of this transaction,i have agreed that 40% of the money will be for you for your assistance and 60% will be for me.Any expenses that may likely to arise during the time of transfer of this fund into youraccount- we will paid it together.So,if you are Capable to handle this Transaction,indicate your interest by replying this letter with a PROMISE that you won't BETRAY me when the fund arrives your account.Once I receive your urgent reply, I will send you more DETAILS and TEXT OF APPLICATION which your will fill with your personal datas and submit to my Bank as the real next of kin to MR.BUD
. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the Fund in your account successfully,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 may even advice.
