From Mr Mohamed Waleed
Bank of Africa,
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.
I am the manager of bill and exchange Bank of Africa (B.O.A) at Foreign Remittance Department. There is a business I would want you to champion for me. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of (US$31.500.000.00) Thirty One Million Five Hundred Thousands US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in 11th September 2003 in a plane crash.
Unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin's or relation died along side with him in 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 I don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I agreed that 40 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner.
I shall send you more details and how to go about the claim as soon as you express your interest.
All modalities of this transaction have been carefully worked out and once started will not take more than Seven Bank working days to complete the transfer process.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Trusting to hearing from you immediately.
