CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This mail has been sent by a lawyer. It contains 
information that is confidential, privileged, proprietary, or otherwise 
legally exempt from disclosure. There is no intent on the part of the sender 
to waive any privilege, including the attorney-client privilege, which may 
attach to this communication.  
With due respect and humility, I write to you irrespective of the fact that 
you don't know me. I got your contact through the Internet, when I was 
making inquiry for foreign assistance. 
I am Barrister Brine Machel of Machel Chambers &  Associates, with 
registered office at No: 24 AVENUE YENLGA 01 BP 11,Ouagadougou-Burkina Faso, 
an International Legal Practitioner and a Consultant to Mr.A.Jaime, a 
Lebanese Importer of Textiles and Automobiles, based  here in Burkina Faso, 
for the past fifteen years. 

Unfortunately, my client Mr.A.Jaime, and his family  died in the ill-fated 
plane crash involving a Boeing  727 UTA chartered flight that took off from 
Cotonou, Republic of Benin and crashed into the Atlantic ocean  on Thursday, 
26 December 2003. 

For details of the plane crash, please visit:  
Before the untimely death of my client, he made a fixed security deposit, 
totalling US$9.2M (Nine Million two Hundred Thousand Dollars) with a Finance 
Company here. The fund has matured and should be claimed by the depositor or 
his next of kin within 14 working days; else the fund will go to the state 
government as unclaimed bills. 

I must confess to you that if I do not find a way to claim these funds from 
the Finance Institution, I will be doing the greatest injustice to my late 
friend and his family. This is why I decided to browse extensively through 
the internet, in search of a reliable contact person who bears the same name 
that can stand in as a next of kin of my late friend and client so we can 
have this fund retrieved and invested judiciously. There are no risks 
involved as I am the only person who has access to my client’s documents. 

This transaction shall be 100% risk free, I guarantee. Also, the Finance 
Institution has just sent a reminder to my client through me, informing him 
of the maturity of his fund so I suggest we expedite action on this. 

Your share of the fund is subject to negotiations. If this business 
proposition offends your moral values, do accept my apology but if not, then 
contact me at once to indicate your interest through my alternative e-mail 
address at(
And by giving me your telephone number so that I too can contact you as we 
must conclude this transaction and have these funds transferred to you 
within 14 working days.
Best Regards,
