l am Mr ZAKARI SAWADOGO the Chief Auditor, with African Development bank (ADB) Burkina Faso West African. One of our customers Engr Ron Morris, with his entire family were among the victims of December 25, 2003 Air-Crash. For more about the Air Crash you can visit the CNN web news for the tragedy.
http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/12/26/benin.crash/ Before his death, he has an account with us valued at Ten Million, One hundred and Eighty-Three Thousand US Dollars ( USD 10.183M).According to the Burkina Faso Law, at the expiration of Three years if nobody applies to claim the funds a grace of thirty (30) days will be given before the
money will revert to the ownership of the Burkina Faso government.
My proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin or Distant Cousin for us to claim this money, so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials who will later use the money to sponsor war in <*xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Africa and kill innocent citizens in the search for political power.
