FROM MR. ABDULSALAM SAEED,
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK
Greetings and compliments of the season,
I am making this proposal to you based on my conviction that you will be
capable of championing this business cause.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $29.2m US dollars (Twenty
nine Million two hundred Thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one
of our foreign customer, late Mr. Zahid Al Fahim an Afghanistan who died along
with his entire family in an American bomb attack on the city of Kandahar,
Afghanistan in the year 2003.
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
somebody applies for it as next of kin, business partner or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately I learnt that
all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him during the bomb
attack 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 I don't want this money to go
into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury
account as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this
business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a
Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
I wish to inform you that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner,
in respect to the provision of a foreign account, while the remaining 60% would
be for me. Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to
the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this
fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation, business
partner or next of kin to the deceased customer.So if you are willing to
champion this business with me,Send me the following information's so that
we can proceed immediately.

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 that 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 you receive this mail.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
