FROM THE DESK OF ali ibrahim.

With Due Respect

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department
of african development bank (ADB). I crave your indulgence as i contact you
in such a surprising manner. But I respectfully insist you read this letter
carefully as I am optimistic it will open doors for unimaginable financial
rewards for both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of Ten Million,Five Hundred
Thousand US dollars (US$10.5m) only , in an account that belongs to one of
our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November 2002
in a plan 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 all his supposed next of kin or relation died along with him at the
plan crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business
proposal to you so that the money could be released to you as the next of
kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since
nobody is coming for it and i dont 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 five years, the money will be transferred into the Bank
treasury as "unclaimed fund". The request for a 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 a 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.

There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this
fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or
next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name,your bank account
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective
communication and location wherein the money will be remitted. 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. You should contact me
immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you

Yours faithfully,
ali ibrahim,
Bill and exchange manager,
