    Dear Friend,

    I am the manager of auditing and accounting at the foreign remittance
    department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In
    my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$35m dollars (Thirty five
    Million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign
    customer (MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany) who died along with
    his entire family in Jully 2000 in a plane crash.For more informations about
    the crash you can visit this site:

    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 guidlings 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 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.

    The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such money remained
    unclaimed 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 occassioned 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 foriegn
    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 arranged,you must apply first to the bank as
    relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application that i
    will send to you,so i will like you to send to me your private telephone and
    fax number for easy and effective communication and location when 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 hitch-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 through my private email
    address:[email protected] or either by calling me immediately on

    Trusting to hear from you immediately.

    Yours Faithfully,

    1. Full Name
    2. Your Telephone Number and Fax Number
    3. Your Contact Address.

    Mr.Ali Micheal Mako
