RE: TRANSFER OF ($9,500.000.00 USD NINE
MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS)
We want to transfer to overseas the sum of ($9,500.000.00USD) Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) from a Prime Bank in Africa.
I would like to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve as far as it can receive money.
I am Mr Saldik Keita an accountant and personal confidant to Dr. Ravindra F. Shah who died together with his wife Dr.Mrs. Manjula Parikh-Shah in a plane crash on the 1st Oct. 2003 on their way to attend wedding in Boston.
Dr. Ravindra F. Shah, is an American, a physician and industrialist, he died
without having any beneficiary to his assets including his account here in Burkina Faso which he opened in the year 2000 as his personal savings for the purpose of expansion and developement of his company before his untimely death in 2003.
The amount involved is (USD 9,500,000.00) Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand USD, no other person knows about this account.
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to alocal person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in US Dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr.Ravindra F. Shah is a foreigner too, and as such the money can only be approved into a foreign a/c.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct
information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with the inheritance procedures.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount,60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring.
You should observe utmost CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECRECY in this transaction, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I will require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
I look forward to your prompt response.please REPLY TO: firstname.lastname@example.org

Manager of RAVINDRAH COY [pty]BF. He held this account with a prime
bank here in burkina faso where I work as an auditor.
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

decided to utilize it. You have no much duty to do as I will be
