I want to tell you that, this transaction is entirely legal and as such you do not have any reason for fear. All the necessary documents that will back up this transaction will be sent to you so that you can keep all the records concerning the transaction, in case you are asked by anyone to produce these evidence. All the procedings are legal.
This business I am talking about is about a certain account belonging to one of our customers, who died in a plane crash. He has no one who can stand as his relation or next of kin, and so the bank governing body is planning to convert his account into bank treasury. I do not want this to happen, and that is why I wrote to you, suggesting to you to apply as next of kin to the deceased. This way I will use my high position to influence approval of your application and this money will be paid into your account, as true inheritor. After which you will send us INVITATION LETTERS for three of us, so that we can visit your country for the disbursement of the fund.
I want you to know that there is no risks involved. Again, the deceased was from Atlanta united state of america. But it does not really matter where the claimant comes from as long as such a person is not a Burkinabe. I want you to know that I have done all necessary arrangements to facilitate smooth and quicker transaction. Also, I would want you to send to me your full contact details: full name, postal address occupation, private and official phone/fax numbers and possibly your photograph or photo copy of your international passport.
Expecting your reply, I also would want you to treat this affair as both urgent and confidential. You can call me on telephone number 00226-76-16-13-24 for more intimacy. I will call your line after sending this message. On your acceptance, i will send to you a TEXT OF APPLICATION for which you should send to the bank and apply for the release of the money into your account which you will send to the bank. This way, you can have good evidence of the true existence of this account and money. Please ask any question if you having any doubt for clerification.
