I am bill and exchange manager at the foriegn remittance department at
Bank of africa (BOA). I am writing you following the impressive information
about you through one of your friend who runs consitance firm here in my
country. He assured me of your capability and reliability to champion
this businees opportunity with.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $16.5m US dollars
(sixteen.five Millon US dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of our
foriegn customer who died along with his entire family in a concord plane crash in the year 2000 in paris that almost took the whole life of the pasengeres on board.
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his balance money in our bank  because we cannot release it unless
somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased person as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side 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 businness proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased person for safety keeping of the money and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don,t want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained uncliamed after Seven years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury account 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 a Burkinabe cannot stand as the 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 expencess incured during the transfer of the money and 60 % would be for me and my colleagues.
There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement accoding to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer 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
 Application Form which you shall re-fill with your correct bank informations and apply to my bank as the original next of kin.
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.You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Your,s Isiam brother,
