Dear Friend,
                     (Reply to

How are you today I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign  remittance department of 
BANQUE INTERNATIONAL DU BURKINA. I am writing you , following the impressive information about you 
through Burkina faso chambers of commerce and industry.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$18.5Million dollars (Eighteen million five 
hundred thousand US dollars)    in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died 
along with his entire family in 2000, in a plane crash.
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 somebody applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking  guidelines and laws but unfortunately we 
learnt that all his suppose to be next of kin or relation died along 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 no one is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury 
as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guiding here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after some years 
the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.  The request of foreigner 
partner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact  that the customer was a 
foreigner and a Burkina Faso cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect  to the  provision 
of a foreign account, There after I and my family will visit your country for disbursement 
according to the percentage 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 of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account 
number,your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location 
where the money will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application where 
the money will be re-transferred. 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 receive this letter also you can call me.
Yours faithfully

Mr musa_soule
Bill & Exchange Manager
