Dear friend,

I am the manager of bill and exchange department of african developement bank.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$15.5 US dollars (fiftheen million five hundred thousand US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November 2002 in aplane 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 guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that 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 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 don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after four 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.

I agree that 30% of this money will be for yours as a respect to the provision of a foriegn account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60% would be for as i will be coming over to you for sharing and investment.

Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. 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 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 help you to fill the text of application and secretly summit it to the bank on your behalf as the next of kin. 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.And for your information you are going to spend some money that is the major point we needed your help because there are some documents to back up our cliams which a Lawyer will get for us so that the transfer will be made very fast.

Your faithfully
