Dear Friend,  

I am Dr.Basham Augustin, I am a staff working with the Bank Of Africa here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. I want you to help me in receiving the sum of Eighteen Million Six Hundred Thousand United State Dollars ($18.6 Million) into your Bank Account.  

This fund was deposited in the bank here by a foreign customer who died accidentally alongside with his entire family members many years ago. Nobody had asked for this fund till now. If you are interested, you have to provide an account where the fund will be remitted because i am highly interested to secure this money from the Bank, then after successful transferred of this fund to your account you will take 40% of the total fund, i will then take 50%, while 10% will map aside for any expenses we might occur during the transferring of this fund to your account. 

Please you can contact me immediately to start the transfer process. Further details about the fund and this transaction will be given to you upon the receipt of your response. Please understand that we have to hurry-up our actions because the bank authority here has plans to redeposit this fund into the treasury of the Central Government as unclaimed fund if nobody applies for this fund after the next bank audit which will begin here soon.  

Kindly contact me immediately via my private email:

I await your urgent reply.  

Yours faithfully.  

Dr.Basham Augustin,
