FROM AHMED IDRISSA
BILLS AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB)
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO.
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of U.S $970.000us dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER FROM GERMANY) who died along with his entire family in July 2000 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 some body applies for the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking
guiding and laws but unfortunately we learnt that his next of kin died along with him in the plane crash.
The banking law and guideline here needs a responsible person, and who the bank can entrust this treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as a 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 agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account , 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 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 designated account, 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 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 risk 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 receive this letter.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.

criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
