 <BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you=
 as a surprise and may offend your personality for contacting you without y=
our prior consent and writing through this channel.I got your contact from =
the proffesional data base found in the internet Yahoo tourist search.When =
i was searching for a foreign reliable partner.I assured <BR>of your capabi=
lity and reliability to champion this businees opportunity. <BR>&nbsp; Afte=
r series of prayers/fasting.i was divinely directed to contact you among ot=
her names found in the data base Yahoo tourist search.I believe that God ha=
s a way of helping who is in need. <BR>&nbsp; <BR>&nbsp;I am (WILFREDO STEE=
LE&nbsp; Esq),the Head of file Department in BANK OF AFRICA (BOA). In my de=
partment we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15 million U.S.A dollars ( fif=
teen million U.S.A dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of our fore=
ign customer who died along with his entire family on (July 21, 2003) in a =
plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecti=
ng his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot relea=
se it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relative on to the d=
eceased as indicated in our banking guidelines,<BR><BR>But unfortunately we=
 learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with h=
im at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore =
upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided to=
 make this businness proposal to you and release the money to you as the ne=
xt of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursemen=
t since nobody is coming for it and we don=92t want this money to go into t=
he bank treasury as unclaimed bill. <BR>The Banking law and guideline here =
stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after five years, the money=
 will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request o=
f foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that =
the customer was a foreigner, <BR><BR>and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next =
of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as =
foreign partner,<BR>&nbsp;in respect to the provision of a foreign account,=
 10 % will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 60 % w=
ould be for me and my woman colleague. There after i will visit your countr=
y for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. <BR><BR>Therefor=
e to enable the immediate transfer of this fund&nbsp; as arranged, you must=
 apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indica=
ting your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and f=
ax number for easy and effective communication and location where 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 t=
hat this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any at=
om of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. <B=
