FROM MR. WILLIAMS HANI SENIOR STAFF IN FILE DEPARTMENT BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO WEST AFRICA.
TOP SECRET AND URGENT CALL +226-78-84-21-34.
I am Mr WILLIAMS HANI. The director in charge of auditing and accounting section in Bank of Africa Ouagadougou-Burkina Faso in west Africa. With due respect and regards I have decided to contact you based on the urgency of this transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction. Please here is my direct contact call me on +226-78-84-21-34. Or email me at email@example.com
During my investigation and auditing in the bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased customer, a foreigner who died on December 26 Friday, 2003 in plane crash. The fund has been dormant in his account with the bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before my discovery to this development. Actually, the late customer MR. FREDERIC AARON was a big merchant who trades on Gold, Diamond, Elephant tusks and crude oil from Africa to Asia and Europe and this money he deposited in our bank to pay for his purchases. Please I want you to visit the website below for more information about the plane crash.
Although personally, I kept this information secret within myself to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and during the time of execution ( Two is secret). The amount involved is(USD$40m). FORTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS. Meanwhile all the whole arrangement and directives needed to put claim over this fund as the beneficiary next of kin to the deceased, will be forward to you upon your acceptance. Information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant,we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow from a foreign nation who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of Oath to the bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be transferred into on his request as it may be, after due verification and clarification to designated bank account.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer such as telephone bills etc, while 60% will be for me. Please,you have been advised to keep everything top secret as I am still in service with the bank and intend to retire from service after I have concluded this deal with you.
Therefore to enable the Bank transfer the funds into your account in your name, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, 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 form which you will fill and apply to bank. And you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. Ask any questions that are not cleared by you for a good follow-up call +226-78-84-21-34. I look forward in working with you may almighty bless us.
