FROM THE DESK OF DR.TAJUD KAM BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGEMENT FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT. THE AFRICAN BANK (TAB) OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO, Dear Friend,I am the Director of Bill and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of The African Bank .
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$17.5 m dollars (seventeen point five million USD) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November 1999 in a plane crash.
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 unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines 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 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 money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.And the Authorities of The African Bank in the last meeting held with the Authorities of the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) Burkina Faso concerning financial matters, concluded that if this money stay with the Bank reach the day of Final Auditing for this year without any body apply for the claim,that the money will go into the National Treasury as an unclaimed fund.
So therefore,I agree on the following share ratio: that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application form that I will send to you when I hear from you, so I will like you to send to me your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. Please,you should contact me immediately as soon as you recieve this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately,because i will not contact any other person or company.So reply immediately to enable me to know the next thing to do.
Yours Faithfully, DR.TAJUD KAM. _________________________________________________________________MSN Messenger : discutez en direct avec vos amis ! http://www.msn.fr/msger/default.asp
