Dear Friend,

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise. I am the bill and 
exchange manager BOA Bank here in ouagadougou burkina faso.
I Hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i 
am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($15.5)MILLION into 
your account.
The money has been dormant for years in our Bank here without any body 
coming for it.
I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased 
customer(the owner of the account)who died a long with his supposed next of 
kin in an air crash few years ago.

I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasury as  unclaimed fund. So 
this is the reason why i contacted you, so that we will release the money to 
you as the nearest person to the deceased customer.

Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it 
if you are not interested.
Upon receipt of your reply,I will send you full details on how the business 
will be executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned 
sum if you agree to transact the business with me.

Thank's and holping to hear from you.

Mr Richard Jonas.
