I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foriegn remittance department of AFICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB). I am writing, following the impressive information about you through one of my friends who works with the BURKINA FASO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $U.S15.5Million dollars( fiftten million five hundred thousand US dolloars)  in an account that belongs to one of our foriegn customer who died along with his entire family in November 2003  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 some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking  guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his immidiate family members died alongside  with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other trusted collegues in my department now decided to
make this business proposal to you and release the monetoyou as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement,since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The banking law and guidling here stipulates that  if such money remained unclaimed after six years the money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.  The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned 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 a foreign partner, in respect  to the  provision of a foriegn account, 10% will be set aside for all expenses that may come during the tranfer process  and 60% would be for me and my
colleagues. There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement according  to the percentage agreed. Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the the deceased, indicating your BANK NAME, ACCOUNT NUMBER, YOUR PRIVATE PHONE NUMBER 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 the APPLICATION FORM. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is 100% riskfree and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for save and easy transfer.
You can contact me immediately as soon as you recieve this mail on my private phone line +22678033446 for further clarifications.

Yours faithfuly.
Bill & Exchange Manager.
