Dear Partner Before I introduce myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a hoax mail and I urge you to treat it with the seriousness it deserves. This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. This is a personal mail directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. One has no doubt in your ability to handle an international business of considerable TRUST, which may form the bedrock of an extensive business partnership in the future. PROPOSITION: I would like you to stand as the next of kin to my deceased client who made some deposits of 25m US dollars at a monthly roll-over interest rate of 10% per annum with the bank of africa ouagadougou burkinafaso. . He died without any registered next of kin and as such the funds now have an open beneficiary mandate. Apparently, this fund does not have any beneficiary and no family member has surfaced as he lived in asia all his life and never bothered about extended families. The bank thereafter contacted me to find the family of the deceased especially now that the only person that was suppose to be his beneficiary died long time ago before the deposit. And that was his wife. All my effort to locate his families in New Zealand, Australia etc proved abortive and knowing that this fund shall be converted to UNCLAIMED DEPOSIT and therefore be forfeited if nobody comes forward to lay claim to the deposit before the end of this financial quarter, as is the practice and also indicated in the EU banking guidelines. THE DEAL: The DEAL is that I intend to present you as the family member to the deceased and have you apply for the claim of this fund. Well, I know very well that the bank may want to verify and undertake its normal bureaucratic investigation, but I assure you that with all the legal, bank and personal papers of the deceased in my possession, and knowing fully well that I am the only one who can give unquestionable testimony on the deceased's investments and property declaration, it would be pretty easy if you co-operate with me as a team to claim this fund. EXECUTION OF THE PROPOSED DEAL: Upon your acceptance to my proposition, I shall proceed to the burkinafaso High Court to obtain the Legal Clearance in your name as the replacement Next of Kin. I shall thereafter send to you all the bank documents and details about the deceased and instruct you on how to apply formally for the process of this claim. Upon your application, the bank shall officially contact you to establish this claim. And of course, I shall be contacted immediately your application is tendered to the bank to testify if I know about your motives. Then, the claim begins. In a matter of five working days the initial Principal of 25m US dollars shall be liquidated with the interest. The total we should expect after the liquidation can't be less than 45m US dollars. SHARING ARRANGEMENTS: We shall share this fund among ourselves 50/50 as we shall be involved equally in all aspects of the claim. However, your bank account shall be used as the beneficiary's account and you will in turn transfer my share to my account in scotland. You may establish a fresh or zero account for this purpose. I seek your understanding to have you stand as the Beneficiary/Next of Kin to the deceased. Do not be bothered as we will carefully and legally work out all necessary documents in your favor as the new Beneficiary/Next-of-Kin to the Estate. I want to count on you as a person of respect and honest disposition and hope that you will handle this transaction with all maturity and confidentiality it deserves. In order to get the process started, I would require that you contact me immediately on this email or Telephone/Fax numbers as given above with all necessary contact information of yourself. I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me. NOTE: If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly delete/destroy this email in view of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities involved.
