<DIV><STRONG><BR>Compliments Of The Season,</STRONG></DIV>
<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 (Mohamed Adams),the Head of fil=
e 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.</STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG>Since we got information about his death, we have been expecti=
ng his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot relea=
se it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the dece=
ased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt th=
at 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 thi=
s 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=
body is coming for it and we don=92t want this money to go into the bank tr=
easury as unclaimed bill.</STRONG></DIV>
<DIV><STRONG>The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such mon=
ey remained unclaimed after eight years, the money will be transferred into=
 the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of k=
in in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a forei=
gner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree =
that 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 incure=
d during the business and 60% would be for me and my woman colleague. There=
 after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percenta=
ges 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>
<DIV><STRONG>You should contact me on my cell phone&nbsp; number 00226-7885=
