DearestAlthough we have not met, I saw your contacts in INTERNET SEARCH,After much consideration i decided to write you since I cannot be able to see you face to face at first. I will like you to take your time to read this mail carefully. I did not mean to embarrasse you with my business proposal but I seriously need your assistance. Please this is a confidential matter and it requires urgency.
I am MRS RAMA MUSA the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of The African Bank (TAB) ouagadougou burkina faso in west africa.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S$12.5m dollars (Twelve million five hundred thousand USD) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in 11 SEP2001 in a plane crash attack in (AMERICA).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 guidlines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the( ATTACK) leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this , 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 don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.The banking law and guidine here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after four years, the money will be tranfered into the bank as unclaimed bill.
I therefore agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreigner partner,in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set asidefor expenses incured during the business and 50% would be for me.There after I 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 relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location vwhere in the money will be remitted. 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 recieve this letter.Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully, MRS rama musa, Bill and Exchange Manager. _________________________________________________________________MSN Hotmail : créez votre adresse e-mail gratuite & à vie ! http://www.msn.fr/newhotmail/Default.asp?Ath=f
