Dear Friend,

I prayed that all is well with you and your family. I am contacting you for the transfer of TWENTY SIX MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($26,000,000) into your reliable bank account and this fund was left unclaimed since the beneficiary died.

I am the SENIOR FINANCIAL OFFICER (SFO), FOREIGN DEPARTMENT of AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK, OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO WEST AFRICA. The above mentioned sum belongs to our foreign customers who died with his entire family (WIFE AND TWO CHILDREN) through plane crash disaster few years ago. Moreover it is a JOINT-ACCOUNT between him and his wife whereas they endorsed their two children (deceased)to be their NEXT OF KIN unfortunately sudden death took
all of them away.

Now they all died and when I secretly discovered that the fund still remains UNCLAIMED through their deposit file in my office as a Senior Financial Officer,i carried out an investigation confidentially to reach any of their relative still the effort was abortive. So there is no body alive to claim the fund right now.

As the time is running off, I remembered that it was signed in our BANKING POLICY that if such fund remains unclaimed till the period of 5 years started from the date the beneficiary died, the money will be transferred into our bank treasury as unclaimed fund and which no individual will further have the right to claim it.

As a customer right and advantage bestowed to our foreign customers base on the banking laws, you have the legal right as a FOREIGNER to claim the fund by applying as the ?FOREIGN BUSINESS PARTNER? to the deceased no matter your country differences. It is only Burkina Faso citizens who are not authorized by law to claim such fund.

On the transfer of this fund into your bank account provision,
1. {39%} US$10,140,000, will your share.
2. {50%} US$13,000,000 will remain my own share
3. We will use the rest {11%} US$2,860,000 to install a Joint Company in your country under our names for helping the less privileges, motherless babies, disabled and helpless people who could not afford their daily breads in most of the poor countries.

If you are really sure of your trustworthy, accountability and confidentiality on this transaction i disclosed to you, contact me and agree that you will not change your mind to cheat or disappoint me when the fund gets into your account. Besides you should not entertain any fear because this is legal and optimistic business of which i am sure of the success without any hitch or risk. Please reply with the assurance, include your private telephone and fax numbers necessary to facilitate an effective communication in this transaction. As soon as you reply , call me so that i will let you know the next step to follow in order to finalize this transaction on a period of ONE WEEK. Once you confirm the funds transfer into your bank account, I will resign and get into your country for the share.

I expect your urgent reply.
Yours sincerely,
Mrs Mariam Giwa.
