Subject: Confidential Business Proposal!!
Compliment of the day. I am Hamidou Bomga the director in charge of
auditing and accounting section Bank of Africa (BOA) Kadiogo Burkina
Faso. With due respect and regard 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
From my department in the bank, the discovery of an abandoned sum of
Ten Million Five hundred thousand United State Dollars (US$10.5M)
belonging to a customer of ours who from investigation died years back
on a family trip, leaving no one coming for the claim as the only
signatory to the account was on that trip with the deceased customer.
This amount of money has been lying dormant in our bank for years
without anybody coming for the claim and soon the bank is planning on
transferring this fund into the banks treasury account, if this amount
is transferred into the bank’s treasury account no one knows what
happen to the amount after then; for this reason I have decided to
make contact with you so this amount can be released to you as the
closest person to the deceased customer (the account owner)
I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this
country as a civil servant(A Banker) 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 requires a second party or fellow who will
forward claims to the bank and also present a foreign account where
you will need the money transferred into on your request after due
verification and clarification by the bank. The request of foreigner
standing for the claims of fund in this business is occasioned by the
fact that the customer was a foreigner and a citizen of my country
cannot stand for claims to a foreigner.
I want you understand that this transaction is 100% risk free as I
have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you
refusing to work with me because I am the only one who knows of this
situation and now you are second.
On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 45%
of the total sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take
care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also
telephone bills, while 45% will be for me. I kindly advice you keep
this a "top secret" as I am still in the service and intend to retire
after I conclude this deal with you.
I will like you to provide the below information's, to enable me use
it in getting the application form for you from my bank.
1. Your Full Name:
2. Your Home Addresses:
5. Home Telephone:
6. Private Telephone:
7. Fax No:
8. Marital Status:
On your reply, next step and procedures including more details to
finalize this transaction will be given to you.
Reply to my personal email: firstname.lastname@example.org for I look forward to
receive your response.
