Dear Sir,

I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA.I am 
writting to seek your coperation over this business  deal.In my department, I discovered an 
abandoned sum of $14million USD(Fourtheen Million United States Dollars)only , in an acount that 
belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that 
took place in Kenya,East Africa,the Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY,a citizen of Atlanta,United States of 
America but naturalised in Burkinafaso,West Africa and contractor with ECOWAS,(ECONOMIC COMMUNITY 

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and 
claim his money because it cannot be releasedunless somebody applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased asindicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately , all his supposed 
next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crashleaving nobody behind for the 
claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this businness proposal to 
you and release the money to you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin or relation to 
the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and this money 
Could go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulate that if such money remained unclaimed after 4 years, 
the money will be transfered into the Bank's treasury as unclaimed fund.The request for your 
assistance and maximumco-operation as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin in this 
business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was aforeigner and a Burkinabe cannot 
stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

40 % of this money will be for you as my foreign partner,in respect t othe provision of a foreign 
account. 5 % will be set aside for expencesincured during the business and 55 % would be for 
me.There after I will come over to your country for disbursement accoding  the percentages 
indicated.Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must 
apply first to the bank as the relation or next of kin to  the deceased,indicating your claims and 
where in the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of application which you 
will fill and forward to the office of the foreign remittance director of the bank of africa. I 
will not fail to bring toyour notice that this transaction is strictly confidential and i will use 
my position in this Bank to effect a hitch free transfer of the fund. looking forward to receive 
your urgent reply.

Please , visit the website below for more informations about the Plane Crash and the tragic death 
of the deceased and his entire family,Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY.

Yours Faithfully,
