FROM MR MOJEED SALAM AUDIT AND ACCOUNTING SECTION, BANK OF AFRICA (B O A) OUAGADOUGOU - BURKINA FASO. WEST AFRICA. ALTERNATIVE EMAIL:(email@example.com) Dear FriendIt is a pleasure to introduce myself as Mr Mojeed Salam, Manager incharge of Audit and Accounting section here in Bank Of Africa (BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.With due respect,There is a business i would want you to champion for me.
In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.2million,usd (Ten million,Two hundred thousand U S Dollars)In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer,who died along with his entire family in Air plane crash on 25th December 2003 in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Since we got information about his death,we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines,but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him in the plane crash leaving noone as the right beneficairy to his balance with our bank.
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 we donít want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as next of kin to him. You will take 35% of this money as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 5%will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 55% would be for me thereof.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you account as arranged,you will apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased,indicating your full name,your private telephone and fax numbers for easy and effective communication and the location where in the money will be remitted.Upon the receipt of your reply,I Mr Mojeed Salam will send to you by EMAIL OR FAX the text of the application which you will sent to the bank.
Be you informed that this transaction is risk free both now and in the future you should not entertain any fear whatsoever,as all required arrangements have been perfected for the transfer. You should contact me immediately through this email address:(firstname.lastname@example.org)
Trusting to hear from you immediately. Yours faithfully Mr Mojeed Salam. _________________________________________________________________FREE pop-up blocking with the new MSN Toolbar - get it now! http://toolbar.msn.click-url.com/go/onm00200415ave/direct/01/
