your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and <BR>writ=

KO ALI (Esq),the Head of file Department in African development bank (ADB).=
<BR>In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15 million U.S.A d=
ollars ( fifteen million U.S.A dollars) . In an account that belongs to one=
 of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in (Monday 3=
1st July 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 bec=
ause we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or =
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfort=
unately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along =
side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is=
 therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department 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 d=
isbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don=92t want this money to=
 go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.<BR>The Banking law and guidel=
ine here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years,=
 the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. Th=
e request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the=
 fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as ne=
xt of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you =
as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % =
will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 60 % would b=
e for me and my woman colleague. There after i will visit your country for =
disbursement according to the percentages indicated. <BR>Therefore to enabl=
e the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply fi=
rst to the bank as relations 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 I will not fail to bring to your notice that this =
transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fea=
r as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. <BR>You sho=
