REMITTANCE OF $15.2 MILLION USD
I am Madam fatima kabore. I work with the bank of African (BOA) in Burkina Faso republic I saw your contacts in INTERNET SEARCH,After much consideration i decided to write you since I cannot be able to see you face to face at first. I will like you to take your time to read this mail carefully. I did not mean to embarrasse you with my business proposal but I seriously need your assistance. Please this is a confidential matter and it requires urgency.
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15.2m (fifteen million, two hundred thousand united states dollars). in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family into the World Trade Center on September 11,sept 2001 (AMERICA ATTACK).
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 guidlines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at 11,sept 2001 (AMERICA ATTACK). leaving nobody behind for the claim.
The owner of this account is Mr JOSEPH. F. GRILLO, foreigner and he is the Manager Of petrol chemical service, a chemical engineer by Profession. He died in world trade center as a victim of the September 11,2001 Incident that befall the United State of America, the bank has made series of efforts to contact any of the relatives to claim this money but without success, you can confirm through this website:http://www.september11victims.com/september11Victims/VictimInfo.asp?ID=1260
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 guidline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Seven years, the money will be tranfered into the bank treasurey as unclaimed bill I therefore agree that 40%of this money will be for you as foreigner partner,
in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 50% would be for me. There after 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 or next of kin to the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.
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 as soon as you recieve this letter. Trusting to hear from you immediately.this is my privet line 00226 78 03 12 01.
