Friend, This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to
ignore it as 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$10M (Ten million US dolloars) in an account that
belongs to one of ourforiegn 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 thedeceased 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 billbecause 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. This transaction will only take us 14 banking days because
as a banker, I know what to do and move the fund into your account
without any delay. You should not entertain any atom of fear as all
required arrangements have been made for the transfer.You should contact
me as soon as you receive this letter. Yours faithfully. Mr.KARIM
