From: Mr.Ibrahim Aboubakar < firstname.lastname@example.org >
I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. I am Mr.Ibrahim Aboubakar," THE CHIEF AUDITOR IN CHARGE OF THE FOREIGN REMITTANCE UNIT” here in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.
During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died in a plane crash on the 21 July 2003. You can check the websites below for more information about the incidence. :( http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html ) or (http://www.legacy.com/Obituaries.asp?Page=LifeStory & PersonId=1177881 )
And since his untimely death the funds has been dormant in his account with this Bank without claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development. Though, personally i kept this information as a secret within me to enable the whole plans and idea be Profitable and successful during the time of execution, the said amount was USD$8.3M (Eight million Three Hundred Thousand united states dollars).
As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through my good friend who works with chamber of commerce on foreign business relations here in Burkina Faso .It is him who recommended your person to me to be viable and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any problem.
Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit yourself to this great business opportunity.
In fact i could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because i work in this bank.
This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designated bank account.
May I at this point emphasize that this transaction is 100% risk free as i have made a successful arrangement as an insider of the bank before contacting you. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 40% of the total sum as ratification, while 5% will be sending to the motherless home, while 55 will be for me being the pioneer of the business. Please, you have been advised to keep this a top secret as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after concluding this deal with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country of your choice.
