Auditing And Accounting Department Bank Of Africa, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Dear friend,I am ISA USMAN , the manager in charge of auditing and accounting department bank of Africa ouagadougou burkina faso .With due respect and regard i have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction .
In our bank ( Bank of Africa) Ougadougou, Burkina Faso, there is an abandoned sum of $ 10.5m ( ten million five hundred thousand us dollars ) in an account that belong to one of our foriengn customer who died along with his family on 31th July 2000, in plane crash and the fund has been dormat in his account with this bank without any claim of fund since we got the infomation about his death , the bank has been expecting his next of kin to come down and claim his money because the bank cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking principles. It is therefore upon this discovery that i have decided to make this business proposal to you so that the bank will release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i dont want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill because the banking law and guidelines here stipulate that if such money remained unclaimed within a period of TEN YEARS the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as un claimed fund . The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreiner and Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreiner.
In this transaction ( 40 percent ) of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect of the provision of a foreign account , (10 percent ) will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and ( 50 percent would be for me.
There after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged , you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name , your account number , your telephone and fax number for easy efective communication and location where the money will be remmitted.
Upon receipt of your reply , iwill send to you by fax or mail the text of appliction which you shall fill and send to the bank and i will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is risk free and that you should not entertain any fear as all arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immidiately as soon as you receive this message through this email address : firstname.lastname@example.org
