Dear Partner, Assalamo Alaikum,
This mail might come to you as a
surprise and the temptation to ignore it as unserious could come into your mind but please
consider it a divine wish and accept it with a deep sense of humility, I am the manager of bill
and exchange at the Foriegn Remittance Department of African Development Bank,Burkina Faso-West
Africa, In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10M (Ten million US dolloars) in an
account that belongs to one of our foriegn customer who died along with his entire family in a
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
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 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 because the banking law states that, if such fund remain unclaimed
for many year's and then, the fund will be transfer into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the
provision of a foriegn account, and 60% would be for me,while 10% will be for expenses (if there
is any) There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage
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 of the deceased indicating your bank name, your
bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication
and location wherein the money will be remitted.
Upon the receipt of your reply, I
will send to you by fax or email the text of the application to fill and send to the bank. I will
not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is free risk and you should keep this
transaction (TOP SECRET) and do not let the bank notice that, I contacted you to claim this fund
but I will be giving you all information from the bank until the fund is transfered into your
This transaction will only take us 14 banking days because as a banker, I
know what to do and move the fund into your account without any delay. You should not entertain
any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
should contact me as soon as you receive this letter.
