FROM THE OFFICE OF MR KARBIRU AHMED AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT. FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT. BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) OUAGA-BURKINA FASO Dear friend,I am Mr Karbiru Ahmed the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of Bank of Africa ouaga-burkina faso in west Africa with due respect and regards, I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of thetransaction.
During our investigation and audting in the bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person, a foriegner who died on november 1999 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with the bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development. Although personally, I kept this information secret within myself and partners to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and successful during the time of execution.The amount involved is USD$40m
(forty million united states dollars).As it may intrest you to know, I got your impressive information through an international business equiry on internet.I beleive you will be viable and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any problem.Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as thebonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foriegn account has been put in place and directives/needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your intrest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to thisgreat business opportunity.In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant,we are not allowed to operate a foriegn 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 foriegn account where he will need the money to be re-transfered into on his request as it may be, after due verification
and clarification to designated bank account.I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smoth 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 such as telephone bills
ets, while 60% will be for me and my partners.Please,you have been adviced to keep top secret as we are 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 the bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask us 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 other country you may advice us to invest in. All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you.I suggest you get back to me assoon as possible stating your wish in this deal.
your's faithfully Mr Karbiru Ahmed _________________________________________________________________MSN Messenger : discutez en direct avec vos amis ! http://www.msn.fr/msger/default.asp
