Dear Friend, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In mydepartment we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.5m dollars (TEN.FIVE Million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in Jully 2000 in a plane crash.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unlesssome body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I 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.
Upon receipt to your willingness and kindid co-operation to assist with the dislodgement of the said funds, i will furnish you with much kindlines on how to proceed.
For more explanation kindly get intouch with me Yours Faithfully, Anthony Aliu _________________________________________________________________MSN Messenger : discutez en direct avec vos amis ! http://www.msn.fr/msger/default.asp
