FROM THE DESK OF MR.CHARLES USMAM
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
OF ONE OF THE BANK IN
COTE D'VIOIRE (ABIDJAN).
I am the Assistant Manager of Bill and Exchange Department, Foreign Remittance Office in one of the BANK IN,COTE D'VIOIRE(ABIDJAN).In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of Twenty Two Million Five Hundred Thosand United States Dollars ($22.5m).In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless some body 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 proposals to you and release the money to you as 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 here stipulates that if such money remains unclaimed after some years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner in this transaction is necessary because our client 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 a foreign partner, in respect to this provision of a foreign account 10% will be set aside for expenses that you may incurre in the cause of this transaction while 60% will be for me and my only colleague, after which we shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage dictated above.
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arrange, you must apply first to the bank, and send your account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and affective Communication and location where the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or E- mail the text of the application Form. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is risk-free as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter through this.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
