 Dear Friend

 I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department
of African Developent bank(ADB) here in Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso.

 In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$30m dollars in an
account that belonging to one of our foreign customer.Who died along with
 his entire family in Monday, 31 July, 2000 in a plane crash in paris.Please
visit this site that is one of the evidence the directors
brought in other to swallow the money at the end of the day,";

 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 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 we 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 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.

 I agree that 30% of this money will be for you 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 me.

 Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this
fund to your desiggnited bank account ,you must apply first to the bank
as a  relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application
that i will send to you,so i will like you to send to me your private telephone
and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in
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 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.

 Bill and exchange manager,
 African Development bank ADB
