FROM THE DESK OF HASSAN SABBAH AUDITING DEPARTMENT OF BANK OF AFRICA. OUAGADOUGOU BURKINAFASO WEST AFRICA.I am Hassan Sabbah,a staff working at the auditing department of the,BANK OF AFRICA(B.O.A)Ouagadougou Burkina-faso West Africa.This is an urgent and very confidential business proposition.I am writing to seek your cooperation over this business transaction.In my department, i discovered an abandoned sum of US$20m, (Twenty Million US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that took place in Kenya, East Africa,on monday the 21st of july 2003 and the Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY, a citizen of Atlanta, United States of America whose residence was here in Burkina Faso,West Africa and also a physician who died in that plane crash with his entire family on board .
Since i got the information about his death,my bank have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately, 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 for the bank to release the money to you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin/business associate to the deceased person for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and this money Could go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.
The Banking law and guideline 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 for your assistance and maximum co-operations,understandings as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin to the deceased person in this transaction is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner.In conclusion,40% of this total money will be for you as my foreign partner,in respect to the provision of a foreign account while 10% will be set aside for the expenses that may be incured during the transaction and 50% will be for me.Thereafter, i will come over to your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you have to apply first to the foreign remittance department of the bank as the next of kin / business associate to the deceased customer of the bank,indicating your claim over the fund and where the money will be remitted.As soon as you responded to this my proposal,i will send to you the contact of the foreign remittance department of the bank of which you are to fill and submit to the office of the foreign remittance department director of the Bank of Africa.I must not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is strictly confidential,100% risk-free.
