From The Desk of Dr. Hassan Ahmed

Auditing and Accounting Manager,

Ouagadougou-Burkina Faso.

Dear Friend,

I Am The Manager Of Auditing And Accounting, I work with a bank (one of the leading banks in Africa) Here In Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In My Department We Discovered An Abandoned Sum Of Us$15.5m Dollars (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand 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 July 2000 In A Plane Crash. For More Information 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 Guiding 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 Guideline Here Stipulates That If Such Money Remained Unclaimed After Some Years, The Money Will Be Transferred 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 Burkina based Cannot Stand As Next Of Kin To A Foreigner.

I Agree That 40% Of This Money Will Be For You As A Respect To The Provision Of A Foreign Account While 5% Will Be Set Aside For Expenses Incurred During The Business And 55% 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 Where The Money Will Be Remitted.

Upon Receipt Of Your Reply, I Will Give You More Information Regarding This Transaction. 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. You Should Contact Me Immediately As Soon As You Received This Letter.

Trusting To Hear From You Immediately.

1. Your Full Name

2. Your Telephone Number and Fax Number

3. Your Contact Address.

Thank You.

Dr. Hassan Ahmed.
