FROM THE DESK OF DR.WAHEED OMAN
 
Dear Friend,
 
With due respect, I write to you this urgent and  confidential business proposal. I am the manager of bill and exchange,,foreign remittance department of THE BANK OF AFRICA IN BURKINA FASO. I an impressive information i got during one of my internet research programme on my  quest for a capable hand  who will handle this transaction for me. i am sure  of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity.
 
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of  $18.5M US dollars,
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died in July 2000 in the Concord Plane crash in Paris.Since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his fund because 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 unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin  or relation died alongside with him leaving nobody behind for the claim.
 
It is therefore upon this discovery that I and  other officials 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 disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we  don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
 
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that  if such fund remained unclaimed after ten years, the fund will be  transferred into the Bank Treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of a foreigner as the  next of kin or relation  in this business is occasioned for the fact that the  customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a  foreigner. We agreed that 25% of this money will be for you as foreign  partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 5% will be set aside  for expenses incurred  during the business and 70% would be for me and my colleagues.moreoevr i and my colleagues will visit your country  for disbursement according  to the percentages indicated.
 
Therefore to enable  the immediate transfer  of this fund to your account 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 private telephone and fax numbers for easy and  effective communication and location where in the  money will be remitted. Everything will be through within 24 working days.Strickly reply to this email address:(drwaheed_oman01@myway.com).
 
Best regards,
DR.WAHEED OMAN.
