DEAR,

I AM THE HEAD OF ACCOUNTS AND AUDIT DEPARTMENT OF BANK OF AFRICA,
OUAGADOUGOU . I DECIDED TO CONTACT YOU AFTER A CAREFUL THOUGHT THAT YOU MAY
BE CAPABLE OF HANDLING THIS BUSINESS TRANSACTION WHICH I EXPLAINED BELOW;

IN MY DEPARTMENT WE DISCOVERED AN ABANDONED SUM OF $30M US DOLLARS (THARTY MILLION US DOLLARS). IN AN ACCOUNT THAT BELONGS TO
ONE OF OUR FOREIGN CUSTOMER WHO DIED ALONG WITH HIS ENTIRE FAMILY IN 2001 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 SOMEBODY APPLIES FOR IT AS NEXT OF KIN OR RELATION TO THE
DECEASED AS INDICATED IN OUR BANKING GUIDELINES.
BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE LEARNT THAT HIS SUPPOSED NEXT OF KIN(HIS SON AND WIFE)
DIED ALONGSIDE WITH HIM AT THE PLANE CRASH LEAVING NOBODY BEHIND FOR THE
CLAIM .

IT IS THEREFORE UPON THIS DISCOVERY THAT I AND OTHER OFFICIALS IN MY
DEPARTMENT NOW DECIDED TO MAKE THIS BUSINESS PROPOSAL TO YOU AND RELEASE THE
MONEY TO YOU AS THE NEXT OF KIN (WE WANT TO PRESENT YOU AS HIS BUSINES
ASOCIATE )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 GUIDELINE 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 CUSTOMER WAS A FOREIGNER AND A
BURKINABE CANNOT STAND AS NEXT OF KIN TO A FOREIGNER .

WE AGREE THAT 30% OF THIS MONEY WILL BE FOR YOU AS FOREIGN PARTNER, IN
RESPECT TO THE PROVISION OF A FOREIGN ACCOUNT, 10 % WILL BE SET ASIDE FOR
EXPENSES INCURRED DURING THE BUSINESS AND 60% WOULD BE FOR ME AND MY
COLLEAGUES.

THERE AFTER I AND MY COLLEAGUES WILL VISIT YOUR COUNTRY FOR DISBURSEMENT
ACCORDING TO THE PERCENTAGES INDICATED.

THEREFORE TO ENABLE THE IMMEDIATE TRANSFER OF THIS FUND TO YOUR ACCOUNT AS
ARRANGED,YOU MUST APPLY FIRST TO THE BANK AS NEXT OF KIN OF THE DECEASED
CUSTOMER. 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 THAT 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.

I EXPECT THAT YOU CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THIS LETTER.

HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU IMMEDIATELY.

YOURS FAITHFULLY,
ZAKARIA MARA
