DEAR,

I AM THE HEAD OF ACCOUNTS AND AUDIT DEPARTMENT OF BANK OF AFRICA,
OUAGADOUGOU . I DECIDED TO CONTACT YOU AFTER A CAREFUL THOUGHT THAT YOU MAY BE CAPABLE OF HANDLING 
THIS BUSINESS TRANSACTION WHICH I EXPLAINED BELOW;

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 WHO DIED ALONG WITH 
HIS ENTIRE FAMILY IN 2003 IN A PLANE 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 
HIS SUPPOSED NEXT OF KIN(HIS SON AND WIFE) DIED ALONGSIDE WITH HIM AT THE PLANE CRASH 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 (WE WANT TO PRESENT 
YOU AS HIS BUSINES ASOCIATE )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 AFTER SEVEN 
YEARS, THE MONEY WILL BE TRANSFERRED INTO THE BANK TREASURY AS UNCLAIMED FUND. THE REQUEST OF 
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 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.

THERE AFTER 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 NEXT OF KIN OF THE DECEASED CUSTOMER. 

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.
I EXPECT THAT YOU CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THIS LETTER.

HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU IMMEDIATELY.
YOURS FAITHFULLY,
TUOMAUS ODION
