<DIV>From Yanick Sabo<BR><BR>Hello,<BR><BR>I am the head of Accounts and Au=
dit Department of Bank of&nbsp; Africa,Ouagadougou . I decided to contact y=
ou after a careful thought that you may be capable of handling this busines=
s transaction which i explained below; <BR><BR>In my department we discover=
ed an abandoned sum of $10.5m US dollars (Ten million, five hundred thousan=
d US dollars). In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer wh=
o died along with his entire family in 1998 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 appl=
ies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our b=
anking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that his supposed next of kin=
(his son and wife) died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobod=
y behind for the claim .It is therefore upon this discovery that I and othe=
r 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 disburs=
ement since nobody is coming&nbsp; for it and we don't want this money to g=
o into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill. <BR><BR>The Banking law and gui=
deline here stipulates that if such money remained Unclaimed after nine yea=
rs, 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. <BR><BR>We agree that 30% of this money will be=
 for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign accou=
nt, 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 v=
isit 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 cu=
stomer. 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 <BR>your notice that t=
his transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of=
 fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.<BR>&nbs=
p;<BR>I expect that you to call me on my private number +226 78034226 for m=
ore details immediately you receive this letter. <BR><BR>Hoping to hear fro=
m you immediately. <BR><BR>Yours faithfully, <BR><BR>Yanick Sabo<BR>Account=
s &amp; Audit Department , <BR>Bank of Africa <BR><BR>Nb.also give me your =
telephone and fax numbers for easy comunication with you. <BR></DIV><br /><=
