AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT. BANK OF AFRICA. Reply
(TOP SECRET) Dear friend , I am Mr.SOLOMON KHADY, the Manager
incharge of auditing and accounting section of Bank of
Africa(BOA)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 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 $16.2M (Sixteen million two hundred
thousand United States dollars). Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to
put claimoverthis fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get
the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has
beenput inplace and directives and needed information will be relayed to
you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me
and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.You Can
Confirm The Deceased Death by viewing this site
l 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 application of trust of oath to
the Bank and also nominate a foreign account where he will need the
money to be transfered into on your request as it may be after due
verification and clarification by the bank. 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 this"top secret"
as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we
conclude this deal with you. All other necessary vital information
will be sent to you when I hear from you like text of application which
you will re-type and send to my bank either by fax or bank email for
approval to take place. I look forward to receive your reply
immediately through this mail box:email@example.com and through here.
Yours faithfully, MR.SOLOMON KHADY.
