Dear Friend,

I hope this meets you in good health. My name is  DR JAMAL AHMED the
manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of bank
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)  here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of seven Million, Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollar US$7.5m dollars in an account
belonging to one of our foreign customer.Who died alongside with his entire
family on Monday, 31 July, 2000 in a plane crash in paris. Please visit this
site that is one of the evidence the directors brought in other to swallow
the money at the end of the day,

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 deceasedas
indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately welearnt 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 and my colleagues 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 seve 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. we 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 and my colleagues.

Thereafter, we will visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this
fund to your desiggnited bank account ,you must apply first to the bank as a
relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application
that we will send to you,so we will like you to send to us your private
telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location
where the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, we will send to you by fax or email the text of
the application . we 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. You should
contact us immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully.
