Greeting in the name of Allah,

I am Mr, Abdel Husam, Manager auditing and accounting department bank of Africa (boa) Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. I discovered the sum of Six million, two hundred thousand dollars (usd 6.2M) belonging to a deceased customer of this bank,  the fund has been lying in a suspense account without anybody coming to put claim over the money since the account owner late,  Mr. Alimarimi Sami Mohamed from Libya whose dose Business in Burkina Faso made a deposit of Six Million, Two Hundred thousand Dollars with our bank on 21st June 2011 before he left to his country to visit his families, along the line the Libya revolution begins, and after one year we have send notification to his address, and finally discover that he is death, as they have a new entering government we sent a reminder and finally discovered from their Libyan ambassador that Mr. Alimarimi Sami Mohamed and all his families was killed in bomb blast on 16th October 2011 by 5PM. It is upon this respect I seek to present you as a foreign partner and our bank will transfer this money into your account, upon your acceptance I will l send you all the informationâs on how this deal would be carried out.

it is therefore, upon this discovery that i decided to take this ultimatum and make this business proposal to you as the fund will be release to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill the banking rules here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after seven years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

Therefore, I am soliciting for your assistance to come forward as the next of kin. I have agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as the beneficiary respect of the provision of your account and service rendered, 50% will be for me, while 10% will be for all the expanses made during this transaction. Then immediately the money is transferred to your account from our bank, I will proceed to your country for the sharing of the fund i will be hoping to hear from soon or call my mobile line for more clarification thanks in advice.

Yours faithful,

Mr Abdel Husam.
