ATTENTION REQUIRED: DEAR FRIEND.I MR: WILLIAMS HANI. The director in charge of auditing and accounting section in Bank of Africa Ouagadougou-Burkina Faso in west Africa with due respect and regards I have decided to contact you on this business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction. Please here is my direct contact call me on +226-78-84-21-34. Or email me at email@example.com
During my investigation and auditing in the bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased customer, a foreigner who died on 2002 in plane crash, 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 my discovery to this development. Actually, the late customer MR. FREDERIC AARON was a big merchant who trades on Gold, Diamond, Elephant tusks and crude oil from Africa to Asia and Europe and this money he deposited in our bank to pay for his purchases.
Although personally, I kept this information secret within myself to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and during the time of execution ( Two is secret). The amount involved is(USD$40m). FORTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS. Meanwhile all the whole arrangement and directives needed to put claim over this fund as the beneficiary next of kin to the deceased, will be forward to you upon your acceptance. 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,we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise 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 from a foreign nation 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 retransfered 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 smooth 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 etc, while 60% will be for me. Please,you have been advised to keep top secret as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after I have concluded 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 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 other country you may advise me to invest in. All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal and asking any questions that are not cleared by you for a good follow-up. Call +226-78-84-21-34.
