Friend, I hope this meets you in good health. My name is Mr Amaru Ali
the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department
of bank AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK(A.D.B) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina
Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of eight
Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollar US$8.5m dollars in
an account belonging to one of our foreign customer.Who died alongside
with his entire family on 20th July 2003 in a plane crash. Please if
you insist I will foward you the site as one of the evidence the
directors brought in other to swallow the money at the end of the day,
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
deceasedas 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 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 I don't want this money to go into the bank
treasury as unclaimed bill. The banking law and guidline here
stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the
money will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The
request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occassioned by
the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand
as next of kin to a foreigner. I agree that 40% of this money will be
for you as a respect to the provision of a foriegn account ,10% will be
set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for
me. Thereafter, we will visit your country for disbursement according
to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer
of this fund to your desiggnited bank account ,you must apply first to
the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of
application that I will send to 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. 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 the transfer. You
should contact me immediately on my alternative email address: as soon as you receive this letter. Trusting to
hear from you immediately. Yours faithfully. Mr Amaru Ali BILL AND
