I am Mr,ali salam, the director in charge of auditing and accounting
section of Africa Development Bank,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 July 2003 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in
his account with this Bank with out any claim of the fund  in our custody
from his family or relation before our discovery to this developement.

The said amount was( EIGHTHEEN MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLERS.($18000.000.00)Meanwhile
all the whole arrangement to put the claim over this fund as the bonafide
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 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.

Infact 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 foriegn account and would eventually  raise  an eye  brow
on my side during  the time of transfer becuase i work  in this bank.
This is the reason why it will require  a second party or fellow  who
will forward claims  as the next of kin to the bank  and  also present
a foriegn account where he will need the money  to be  retransferred
into  on his
request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the
correspondent branch  of the bank where the  money will be remitted
from to your own designation bank account,(please contact me immediately
through this mail address

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;while5% will be set aside to take care
of expenses that may arise during the time of  transfer   and also telephone
bills; while65%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
any country  you advice us to invest.All other necessary vital  information
will be sent to  you when i hear from you.please contact me immediately
through this mail address

I look forward to  receive your email . 
Yours  faithfully
