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

In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of $10.5m US dollars
(Ten million, five hundred thousand US dollars). In an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in
2003  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 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 have now decided to make this
business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin (I
want to present you as his busines asociate )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 guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
Unclaimed after seven years, the money will be transferred into the Bank
treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next 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 .

I agree that 40% 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 50% would be for me and I 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 the transfer.
I expect that you contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Hoping to hear from you immediately.
Yours faithfully,
Accounts & Audit Department ,
Bank of Africa

Nb.also give me your telephone and fax numbers for easy comunication
with you.
