AUDIT AND ACCOUNTING SECTION,
AFRICA DEVELOPMENT BANK(ADB)
I am the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of Africa
Development Bank ,(ADB) Ouagadougou Burkina-faso West Africa. with due
respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction
that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction .
During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came
across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on
October 31st 2004 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his
account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either
from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.
The said amount was U.S $20M (Twenty million United States dollars). As it
may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through the
Burkina-faso chamber of commerce on foreign business relations here in
Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the
bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer
this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and
needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your
interest and willingness to assist us 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(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate a foreign
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 foreign
account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his
request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the
correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from
to your own designation 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 5% will be set aside to take care of
expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone
bills, while 65% will be for me. Please, you have been adviced to keep "top
secret" as I am 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 this 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 country you advice us
to invest in.
All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from
I look forward to receive your email or call as the urgency implies.

AFRICA DEVELOPMENT BANK(ADB).
