I am Abdoul Salif, the account officer to the late Dr. Ravindra
F. Shah who died together with his wife Dr. Mrs. Manjula Parikh-Shah
in a plane crash on the 1st Oct. 2003 on their way to attending a wedding
in Boston. Dr. Ravindra F. Shah was an American, a physician and an
industrialist. He unfortunately died without having any heir to his assets
nor leaving any trace to his relatives. He had confided to me of his
interest to open a company here in Burkina Faso with the funds
deposited here but never came back after the deposit made in the year
2000 as he died in 2003.
The amount involved is Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand USD
($10,500,000.00). No other person knows about this and I am
contacting you for us to transfer this funds to your account as the
heir and hence beneficiary to the fund. I have and will furnish you
with all necessary details the bank may need. I contacted you because
the bank will only believe and honour you with the fund knowing that
our late customer was also a foreigner like you but would definitely
not work or believe a local person from here. I want to assure you
that this is risk free and note that I am doing this because the bank
here will only claim the funds if we don’t act now and receive the
This is a mutual deal that we both stand to benefit so much from. All
I need is your utmost trust, confidence and sincerity. You also have
to guarantee me that I will receive my share after the transfer.
Do reply urgently so that I give you necessary details as to how to go about it.
