FROM THE DESK OF DR.SALIF IBRAHIM
ACCOUNTS & AUDIT DEPERTMENT,
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO.
ATTN: URGENT DEAR FRIEND
I am the head of Accounts and Audit Department of Bank Of Africa,
Ouagadougou.It is my utmost pleasure to send you this confidential message.
In my search for a reliable business partner overseas, i got your contact
in the internet and was impressed with your profile hence my interest in
doing business with you.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of
$18.3m US dollars (Eighteen million, three hundred thousand US dollars) .In
an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with
his entire family on Monday,31 may, 2000 in a plane crash out side paris.
Please visit this site that is one of the evidence the directors brought in
other to swallow the money at the end
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 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 the deceased 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 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.
We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in
respect to the provision of a foreign account, 5 % will be set aside for
expenses incurred during the business and 65 % would be for me and my
There after I and my colleagues will visit your country for disbursement
according to the percentages indicated.
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,
you must apply first to the bank as relations 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 where in
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.
I expect that you contact me as soon as you receive this mail or If you
which me to contact you via your telephone or fax or po box I will do that
You can also contact me via my alternative email address
