WEST AFRICA. Dear Sir, I am Mr, the chief Accountant in charge of Auditing and Accounting unit of Bank of Africa Ouaga-Burkina-Faso in West Africa. In 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 the bank, my department gazetted a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased depositor,a foreigner who died in october 1999 in a plane crash and 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 our discovery to this development.Although personally, i kept this information veiled within my partners and i, to enable the whole plans and idea profitable and successful during the time of execution.The amount involved is USD$14m (fourteen million united states dollars) As it may interest you to know,i got your impressive information through an international business enquiry on internet. I beleive you will be viable and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any problem.Meanwhile the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next-of-kin to the deceased,gets the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives/needed information,will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit yourself in this great business opportunity. In fact,i could have done th is 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 an eyebrow 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-transfered 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 be incurred during the time of transfer such as telephone bills ets, while 60% will be for me and my partners. Please,you have been advised to keep top-secret as we are 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 the bank until you confirm the money in your account afterwhich we come over to your country for sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and for further investment,either in your country or any other country that would be convenient to invest in.All other necessary information would be detailed to you when I hear from you.I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your abilities in this deal.
