 Dear Friend,

I hope this meets you in good health. My name is Mr Omar Hussein  the  manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of bank  AFRICA DEVELOPMENT BANK(A.D.B)  here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollar US$5.5m dollars in an account  belonging to one of our foreign customer.Who died alongside with his entire  family on 20th July 2003  in a plane crash.
Please if you insist I will foward you the site as one of the evidence the directors brought in other to swallow the money at the end of the day, 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 some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I 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 I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after seven years, the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foriegn account ,10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me.
Thereafter, we will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to your desiggnited bank account ,you must apply first to the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application that I will send to you,so I will like you to send to me your private telephone and fax 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 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. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully.
Mr Omar Hussein
