Friend (TOP SECRET) I am
Mr Salifu Ahmed the director in charge of auditing and accounting
section of Bank Of Africa,(BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso in 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 16th febuary 1998 in a plane crash and the fund has
been dormant in his accountwith this Bank without any claim of the fund
in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery
to this development. Although personally, I keep this information
secret within myself to enable the whole plans and idea be Profitable
and successful during the time of execution. The said amount was U.S
$7.2M (SEVEN million TWO hundred United States dollars). 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 45% of the total
sum as gratification, while 55% 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 I 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 you I look forward to receive
your mail Yours faithfully, Mr Salifu Ahmed
