FROM THE DESK OF BLASE HAGAR
THE AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING
SECTION MANAGER BANK OF AFRICA,
(B.O.A.) OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO.
I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. I am the Auditing and Accounting section manager with Bank of Africa, Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. I Hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families.
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($15) Million US Dollars only to your account within 10 or 14 banking days. This money has been dormant for years in our Bank without claim. I want the bank to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer late Mr Andrew Eich who died along with his supposed next of kin in an air crash since 31st October 1999.I don't want the money to go into government treasury as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why I am contacting you so that the bank can release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer.
Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested. Upon receipt of your reply, I will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 30% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me. I am expecting your urgent response as soon as you receive my message.
I received your email and assure you once more about the legitimacy of this transaction as we are going to follow all the official and legal procedures to get all approvals in your favour as the beneficiary.
During our auditing in the bank, I discovered that the account has been dormant and the bank recommended that after this fiscal year, the fund will be transferred to the apex bank as unclaimed bills and this warranted my search for a honest person who will apply for the fund and claim it so that we share it together as I indicated in my previous mail. I have worked here in the bank for a period of time now without achieving anything that is why when I saw this opportunity, I decided to utilize it.
I contacted you to champion this project on my search for a reliable partner and my secretary, Miss Megg, gave me your email as I
instructed her to give an email of a reliable foreigner for an important transaction and I am sure she got it from the computer.
However, this transaction will be strictly based on the following terms and conditions as I have stated below:
(a) My conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence.
(b) That you would treat this transaction with utmost secrecy and confidentiality it deserves.
(c) That you will not ask for more percentage or try to sit on the funds once it is under your custody, or any form of blackmail to allow take the money alone.
(d) That upon receipt of the funds you will release the funds as instructed by me after you have removed your share from the total amount before my arrival in your country as it might take me little
time to retire and get my travel documents ready before arriving in your country.
This transaction is 100% legal and risk free and we hope to conclude it deal
within 7-14 working days if you accord me your unalloyed support and co-operation. I give you my word that you are completely safe in doing business with me.
After the processing of all Foreign Payment documents, and when the money is ready to be paid into your A/C, after the final Approval in your favour by the finance ministry, you be required to come in person to sign the change of beneficiary documents. We can as well engage an attorney if you are unable to come, but I will appreciate if you make it possible to be here as that will also be an opportunity for us to know each other and build more confidence before the fund enters your account.
You should know that this opportunity can hardly come my way again in life so I have planned everything very well so be rest assured that everything will work out fine.
Frankly speaking from the bottom of my heart, my fear now is the security of this money in your custody once
transferred into your A/C because I don't know you nor your capability and facilities to handle this large amount. What is your age and profession? I will really like to know more of you and I will want you to keep it very confidential at all times and also to be maintaining constant communications with me knowing that this transaction should take precedence over any other for the mean time.
Now I need the A/C information and your private telephone numbers as a need may arise either to call you in the day or night as occasion warrants. Pls follow this chart;
Swift Code(if any):
Pls respond as quickly as possible with your account information to enable us put an application to the bank for the approval processes in your favour as the beneficiary.
Hope to hear from you
Mr Blase Hagar,
