Dear.......i need your foreign assistance,

I am the head of Accounts and Audit Department of Bank of Africa,
Ouagadougou .I decided to contact you after a careful thought that you may
be capable of handling this business transaction which i explained below;
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $10. 5 m US dollars ten
million five hundred us dollars). In an account that belongs to one of our
foreign customer who died along with his entire family in 1998 in a plane
crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his
next of kin tocome over and claim his money 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 his
supposed next of kin(his son and wife) died alongside with him at the plane
crash 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(We want to present you as his business associate )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 nine years, the money will be transferred into the Bank
treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner asnext 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 .We agree that 30% of
this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision
of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during
the business and 60% would be for me and my colleagues. There after 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 next
of kin of the deceased customer. 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 should not
entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for
I would want you to respond to my email immediately you read it for more
Hoping to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully,
Accounts & Audit Department ,
Bank of Africa
