<DIV><STRONG>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Forgive my indignation if this messag=
e comes to you as a surprise and <BR>may offend your personality for contac=
ting you without your prior consent and <BR>writing through this channel.I =
got your contact from the proffesional data base <BR>found in the internet =
Yahoo tourist search.When i was searching for a foreign reliable partner.I =
assured of your capability and reliability to champion this business opport=
unity.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; After series of prayers/fastin=
g.i was divinely directed to contact you <BR>among other names found in the=
 data base Yahoo tourist search.I believe that God has a way of helping who=
 is in need.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp; I am (SEMOR ABAD (Esq),the Head of f=
ile Department in African development bank (ADB).</STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG>In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15 millio=
n U.S.A dollars ( fifteen million U.S.A dollars) . In an account that belon=
gs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in =
(Monday 31st July 2000) in a plane crash. Since we got information about hi=
s 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 o=
f kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, b=
ut unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation di=
ed along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the cla=
im. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my depar=
tment now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the mon=
ey to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and sub=
sequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don=92t want this=
 money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.</STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG>The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such mon=
ey remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into =
the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of ki=
n in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreig=
ner, 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 th=
e provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incur=
ed during the business and 60 % would be for me and my woman colleague. The=
re after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percen=
tages indicated. </STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG>Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you=
 as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin =
of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your p=
rivate telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and lo=
cation 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 shoul=
d not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been mad=
e for the transfer. </STRONG></DIV>
