From: Mr.Francis CROISEAU The Auditor General, The International bank for Commerce, Industry and Agriculture in Burkina Ouagadougou Burkina faso Bank Web:www.biciab.bf Dear Friend, I am Mr.Francis CROISEAU, The Auditor General, BICIAB) and i know that this letter will meet your person in surprice but i want you to bear with me because it is as the urgency warrants.Here in my Department i discovered a record of a dormant sum of ($4.200.000 U.S) FOUR MILLION TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS). In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer from AMERICA who died along with his entire family in November 2004 in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his relative to come for the claim because the man died with his only son who is the next of kin and unfortunately nobody have come for the claim because it happens to be that none of his family members know about the funds.This is because the deceased was residing permanently here in my country Burkina Faso with his family that died alongside with him while going to his home country (USA) through Paris. The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money lingers dormant and unclaimed for a long time, the funds will be transferred Into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of a foreigner as the Next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as the next of kin.Dear this is suppose to take us only few bank working days to conclude on the transfer for I have put everything in place before contacting you and there is no risk. I want to hearing from you so that I can give you a drafted application of claim with the informations of the deceased and it's account to forward to the bank for the release of the funds to you as the bonafied beneficiary of the dormant funds.I have agreed to share with you 60%/40% of the total fund and I don't want to experience any atom of disappointment as the funds hits your account. Thanks Yours sincerely Mr.Francis CROISEAU .
