Compliments Of The Season 2008,
Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and may offend
your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and writing through
this channel.I got your contact from the proffesional data base found in the
internet Yahoo tourist search.When i was searching for a foreign reliable
of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity.
of prayers/fasting.i was divinely directed to contact you among other
names found in the data base Yahoo tourist search.I believe that God has a way of

I am (WILFREDO STEELEE sq),the Head of file Department in BANK OF AFRICA (BOA). In
my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15 million U.S.A dollars (
fifteen million U.S.A dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customer who died along with his entire family on (July 21, 2003) 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 cannot release it unless
somebody applies for it as next of kin or relative on 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
therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided
to make this businness 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 guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed
after five 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 occasioned by
the fact that the customer was a foreigner,
and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 40 % of
this money will be for you as foreign 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 and my
colleague. There after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund as arranged, you must
apply first to the bank as relations 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 where 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 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.
WILFREDO STEELE (Esq.)
FROM (B.O.A) OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO.
GOD BLESSINGS,PROTECTIONS AND GUIDIANCE TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY.
POST SCRITUM:You have to keep everything secret
