FROM MR.KAYON MUNAGE. ASSISTANT TO THE FOREIGN REMITTANCE DIRECTOR,
BANK OF AFRICA OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO.
I know that this email will come to you as a surprise and I hope that you
will not expose or betray this trust and confident that Iâm about to repose on
you for mutual benefits of our families. I am the assistance to the foreign
remittance director of Bank of Africa Burkina Faso.
I need your urgent
assistance in transferring the sum of ($10.5USD) Ten million five hundred
thousand United States dollars to your account within fourteen banking days. In
my department I discovered an abandoned sum of ($10.5USD) Ten million five
hundred thousand United States dollars in an account that belongs to one of our
foreign customer who died without any nomination of the next of kin to the bank.
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 relation to the deceased as indicated in our
banking policies but unfortunately for years now non of his relations has
applied for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I
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 request of a 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. I have
agreed that 40 % of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, and 60 %
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 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
Upon the receipt of your reply, I will give
you full details on how the business will be executed. Please kindly contact me
as soon as you receive this proposal: through this address: email@example.com

1. Your full name: 2. Your
contact cell phone number: 3. Your age: 4. Your sex: 5. Your

Looking forward to your
urgent reply over my letter.
Mr. Kayon Munage.
