<DIV><BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Forgive my indignation if this message comes to=
 you as a surprise and may offend your personality for contacting you witho=
ut your prior consent and writing through this channel.I got your contact f=
rom the proffesional data base found in the internet Yahoo tourist search.W=
hen i was searching For a foreign reliable partner.</DIV>
<DIV>I assured of your capability and reliability to champion this businees=
 opportunity.&nbsp; After series of prayers/fasting.i was divinely directed=
 to contact you among other names found in the data base Yahoo tourist sear=
ch.I believe that God has a way of helping who is in need.<BR>I am (Wilfred=
o Tamini) the Head of file Department in BANK OF AFRICA (BOA). In my depart=
ment we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15 million U.S.A dollars ( fifteen=
 million U.S.A dollars) . </DIV>
<DIV>In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died alo=
ng with his entire family on (July 21, 2003) in a plane crash. Since we got=
 information about his death, we have been </DIV>
<DIV><BR>expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because=
 we cannot <BR>=B5 release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin=
 or relative on to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines,</DI=
<DIV>But unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relat=
ion died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for th=
e claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my =
department now decided to make this businness proposal to you and release t=
he money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety a=
nd subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don=92t wan=
t this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.</DIV>
<DIV>The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remai=
ned unclamed after five years, the money will be transfered into the Bank t=
reasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this =
business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner,</DIV>
<DIV>and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree t=
hat 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner,in respect to the=
 provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set </DIV>
<DIV><BR>aside for expenses incured during the business and 60 % would be f=
or me and my <BR>woman colleague. There after i will visit your country for=
 disbursement <BR>according to the percentages indicated.</DIV>
<DIV><BR>Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund&nbsp; as a=
rranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of th=
e deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your privat=
e telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and locatio=
n where the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send =
to you by fax </DIV>
<DIV><BR>or email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to y=
our notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not ente=
rtain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the =
<DIV>You should contact me on my number +226-76 14 91 21. immediately as so=
on as you receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.Your=
=92s faithfully,<BR>WILFREDO TAMINI(Esq.)</DIV>
POST SCRITUM:You have to keep everything secret as to enable the transfer t=
o move very smoothly in to the account you will prove to the bank.</DIV>
