I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittancedepartment of Banque internationale de lafrique delouest Abidjan (BIAO) I am writing following the impressive information about you through my reseach from your country directory. its assured me of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity.
In my departmentn I discovered an abandoned sum of $18.5m US dollars eighteen million, five hundred thousand U.S dollars .In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a concord plane crash in the year 2000 in paris that almost took the whole life of the pasengeres on board Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come overand claim his money because we cannot release 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 beneficiary died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
Therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this businness proposal to you and release the money to you as the beneficiary or next of kin 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 unclamed after Six years the money will be transfered into the Banktreasury account as unclaimedfund, The request of foreigner as the beneficiary or next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and an Ivoirean cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I 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 incured during the business and 60 % would be for me There after I will visit your country for disbursement accoding to the percentages indicated, remember the transfer of this money does not matter your nationality you will apply as the beneficiary or nesx of kin.
Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank the beneficiary as 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 where in the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply I will send to you by email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to your notice that thistransaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
I assure you once more again that no risk involved in the transfer of this money into your account i am arranging everything in your favour.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately. Your's faithfully, DR AGUS (bill and exchange manager ) Tel 225-06-51-70-14 _________________________________________________________________Windows Live Spaces : créez votre Space à votre image ! http://www.windowslivespaces.fr/
