FROM THE DESK OF Ali
MANAGER BILL AND EXCHANGE.
BANK OF AFRICA.
Courtesy of Business opportunity, I take liberty anchored on strong desire to solicit for your assistance on this mutual beneficial and risk free transaction with you, which I hope you give urgent attention.
To be precise, I am (Dr Ali) the Manager of Bills/Exchange at the Foreign Exchange/Remittance Department of (Bank of Africa) Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso, In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of US$20.5m (twenty million five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our customers who died along with his entire family in 1999 Lockerbie Pan American Airline 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 can not release it unless somebody applied for its next of Kin or Relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking procedure, but unfortunately to no avail, and nobody has come forward to claim the money (because the mentioned next of kin which is Son died as well).
Therefore, upon this discovery I and other two officials in my department now decide to establish a cordial business relationship with you, hence by contacting you.
We want you to purportedly apply to the bank as the next of Kin or relation of the deceased so that we can prepare documentations and release the funds (US$20.5musd) into your account for safety and subsequent disbursement now that the bank is in there third quater payment of the year since nobody is coming for it and again we do not want the funds to go into the Governments account as “Unclaimed Bill”.
The banking law and procedures herein stipulates that any account abandoned or dormant for a period of some years is subjected to be closed and all money contained therein will be forfeited to the Government Treasury Account.
Now it is being speculated that the above sum will be transferred into Government Treasury Account as unclaimed funds on or before November 2006. The reason for you to apply as the
next of kin in occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner.
Mode of sharing after the successful completion of the transfer is as follows, for the role you will be expected to play in the whole exercise, we have agreed to give you twenty percent(30%) of the total sum, and 10% has been set aside for expenses we are going to encounter by both parties in the process of this transaction and the remaining 60% shall be for my colleagues and I.
In support of the aforementioned, you are urged to reply this letter indicating your readiness and interest to participate in the business. After you reply,we will send to you by email or fax the real text of the application which you are going to fill and send to the bank.
I quite believe that you will protect our interest by keeping this business Top Secret and Confidential, as your interest will be equally protected in order to achieve and maintain maximum confidentiality.
Trust to hear from you soon nest
Dr Ali (B.O.A
