FROM THE DESK OF MR.MUSA KUKU
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING MANEGER ,
BANK OF AFRICAN B.O.A
I am the manager of auditing and accounting at the foreign remittance
department of BANK OF AFRICAN) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my
department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$7.350m dollars (SEVEN
MILLION, THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS). in an account that
belongs to one of our for eign customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich,
Germany) who died along with his entire family in July 2000 in a plane
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of
kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless
some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidlings and laws 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 now decided to make this business
proposal to you and release the money to you as the 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 and guidline here stipulates that if such
money remained unclaimed after eight years, the money will be transfered
into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next
of kin in this business is occassioned by the fact that the customer was a
foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision
of a foriegn account ,10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the
businessand 60% would be for me Thereafter, I will visit your country for
disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the
immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged,you must apply first to the
bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application
that i will send to you,so i will like you to send to me your private
telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location
where in the money will be remitted.Upon receipt of your reply, I will send
to you by fax or email the text of the application.
I will not fail to bring to your notice this transaction is hitch-free and
that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements
have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon
as you received this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
