  Dear Sir,
  With due respect, I write to you this urgent and confidential business proposal. I am the manager of bill and exchange, foreign remittance department of THE AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK  IN BURKINA FASO. Please i got your contact through a friend who works in chambers and commerce here in burkina fas during my quest for a capable hand who will handle this transaction for me. i am sure of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity.
 In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 10.5M US dollars (Ten million five hundred thousand US Dollars), in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer customers by name Salah Adam 64, from Toronto,who died along with his entire family in the plane crash of 31 October 1999 on board the Egyptian Airline 990 alongside with other passengers.
Since we got the 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 alongside with him leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now 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 guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed some number of years,it will be transferred into the Bank Treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of a foreigner as the next of kin or relation in this business is occasioned for the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agreed 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 incurred during the business and 60% would be for me and my colleagues.
 moreover, i and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to your account as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax numbers for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted. Everything will be through within 14 working days.
Best regards,
DR.  Mustapha Ali.
