ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ CONFIDENTIAL IS THE CASE")
Compliments Of The Season 2008,
ÂÂÂ This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it asÂ unserious could come into your mind but please consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the Foriegn Remittance Department of BANK OF AFRICA, Burkina Faso-West Africa, In my department we
discovered an abandoned sum of US$25 M (TWEENTY FIVE THOUSAND US DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foriegn customer who died along with his entire family 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 guidlines 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 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 unclaimedÂ bill because the banking law states that, if such fund remain unclaimed for many year's and then, the fund will be transfer into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foriegn account, and 60% would be for me,while 10% will be for expenses (if there is any) There after 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 indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location wherein the money will be remitted.
Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application to fill and send to the bank. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is free risk and you should keep this transaction (TOP SECRET) and do not let the bank notice that, I contacted you to claim this fund but I will be giving you all information from the bank until the fund is transfered into your account.
You should contact me as soon as you receive this letter for furder details and please make sure you call me on the number bellow.
