Dear Friend,

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance
department of African development bank(ADB)I crave your indulgence as i
contact you in such a surprising manner. But I respectfully insist you read
this letter carefully as I am optimistic it will open
doors for unimaginable financial rewards for both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of fifteen million US
dollars (US$15m) only , in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customer who died along with his entire family in November 1999 in a
plan 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 applies for it as next of kin or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt
that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along with him at the
plan 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 as the next of kin
or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement
since nobody is coming for it and i dont want this money to go into the
bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money
remained unclaimed after ten years, the money will be transferred into the
Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of a 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. We
agree that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in
respect to the provision of a foreign account , 10% will be set aside for
expenses Incurred during the business and 60% would be for me and my

There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for
disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the
immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, 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 wherein 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.
please reply me with this E-mail address:
Yours faithfully,

Bill and exchange manage.
African development bank(ADB)
