Greeting to you and your family, I hope that you are well today.I am the Manager of Audit and account dept,of our bank.So with due respect, i decided to contact you over this business financial transaction worth the sum of TWENTY TWO MILLION THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($22,3m) in other to entrust this fund into your bank account. 
This is an abandoned fund that belongs to the one of our bank customers who died along with his entire family on 25th July,2003 in a plane crash disaster. I was very fortune to meet the deceased file when i was arranging the old and abandoned customers files of2003-2004 in other to submit to the bank managements accordingly for documentation purposes. 
Following our banking financial policy, it was obviously indicated and signed law fully that if such money remains unclaimed after five years without somebody been a foreigner apply and claim the fund as the next of kin , the money will be transferred into the Bank Treasury as an unclaimed fund. 
So the request of you as a foreigner is necessarily needed for the claim because a citizen of Burkina Faso cannot come forward to claim the fund since the law does not pave a way for an indigene to claim such fund. 
Since the real beneficary of the fund died , the bank are expecting the next of kin to apply for the release of the fund for him or her without delay but unfortunately i learnt through the investigations which I carried out that there is nobody behind who can come and claim the fund. Therefore I want you to apply to the bank with your reliable bank account details where our bank will transfer the fund into, and immediately the fund is transferred into your account ,we will share the fund according to the percentage ratio below. 
FIFTY FIVE PERCENT (55%) of the total fund will be for me.THIRTY FIVE PERCENT(35%)for you in provision of the Bank account. FOUR PERCENT(4%) will be for unexpected expenses which may occur during the transfer. SIX PERCENT(6%) will be preserved for helping the helpless people, like charity organization and motherless babies. Thereafter you will help me to visit your country for sharing the money according to the percentage indicated above.
So for the immediate transfer of this fund into your bank account as arranged, you must 
apply first to the bank as the only existing next of kin to the deceased customer and after approval which will take place immediately as you applied, the transfer of the fund into your nominated bank account will proceed.Please note that you should keep this business secret until you confirm the fund into your bank account which you will provide.
And there is NO RISK in this business. The bank will forward to you all necessary documents related to the transfer and which will prove that you make a legal claim of inheritance.It is true that i prayed before i was pushed forward to contact you for this business but i want you to pray also and assure me solemnly that you are a trsutwothy,reliable,honest and capable to avoid cheating me in this business. If you are really sure of your integerity,reply me for my email box immediately for more detailed information for how the process to transfer the fund into your account will be.  MY ALTERNATIVE EMAIL ADDRESS:
