FROM MR. GASTON MIYAKUM
BILL AND EXCHAGE MANAGER.
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT
BANK OF <*xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />
I am writing to seek your co-operation over this business proposal.
First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of it's nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.
l have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction, Let me start by introducing myself properly to you. I am Mr Gaston Miyakum a manager with the Bank Of Africa( BOA), Ouagadougou Burkina Faso,
I came to know you in my Private Search for a Reliable and Reputable Person to handle this Confidential Transaction, which involves the transfer of huge sum of Money to a Foreign Account requiring Maximum Confidence.
In my department, We discovered an abandoned sum of$15million USD(FIFTEEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS.)Only, in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that took place in
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately 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 now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and It is because of the perceived possibility of not being able to locate any of Late Brumleys s next kin (He died with his entire family members)
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after three years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund The request for your assistance and maximum co-operation as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
The sharing of the fund are thus: 30% for you the account owner,60% for I and my trusted colleagues and the remaining 10% for expenses for both parties. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not make undue advantage of the trust we have bestowed in you.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter on my direct line TEL.+22678846632
.Trusting to hear from you immediately.
