Dear master/miss,

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA 
(B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of 
US$30m dollars (THIRTY Million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with his entire family in 
Jully 2000 in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and 
claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt 
that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving 
nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this 
business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the 
deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want 
this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after fours 
years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of 
foreigner as next of kin in this 
business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand 
as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a  respect to the provision of a foriegn account 
, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for me 
Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated 
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged,you must apply first to 
the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased ndicating your bank name, your bank account 
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location 
where in the money will be 

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application . I will 
not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain 
any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact 
me immediately true via Email( soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours Faithfully,
