FROM THE DESK OF MR HENRY WAX
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER
BANK OF AFRICA.
I AM MR HENRY WAX THE BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER AT THE FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT OF BANK OF AFRICA.
I GOT YOUR CONTACT FROM THE INTERNET ,WHILE SEACHING FOR AN HONEST AND TRUST WORTHY PERSON, WHO WILL ASSIST ME TO IMPLEMENT THIS TRANSFER.
I DISCOVERED THE SUM OF TWENTY TWO MILLION AND FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS (USD22.5M) BELONGING TO A DECEASED CUSTOMER OF THIS BANK.
THE FUND HAS BEEN LYING IN A SUSPENCE ACCOUNT WITHOUT ANYBODY COMING TO PUT CLAIM OVER THE MONEY SINCE THE ACCOUNT OWNER LATE MR SALLA KHATIF FROM LEBANESE , WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THE DECEMBER 25TH 2003 BENIN PLANE CRASH. HERE IS THE AIR CRASH WEBSITE ON CNN =
SAID FUND IS NOW READY FOR TRANSFER TO A FORIEGN ACCOUNT WHOSE OWNER WILL BE PORTRAYED AS THE BENEFICIARY AND NEXT OF KIN TO THE DECEASED CUSTOMER OF THE BANK.
SINCE WE GOT INFORMATION ABOUT HIS DEATH, WE HAVE BEEN EXPECTING HIS NEXT IF 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 GUIDLINES 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 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 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 THEREFORE SOLICITING FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE TO COME FORWARD AS THE NEXT OF KIN.
I HAVE AGREED THAT 40% OF THIS MONEY WILL BE FOR YOU AS THE BENEFICIARY IN RESPECT OF THE PROVISION OF YOUR ACCOUNT AND SERVICES RENDERED, 55% WOULD BE FOR ME WHILE 5% WILL BE FOR EXPENCSES INCURED DURING THE CAUSE OF THIS TRANSACTION IF THE MONEY IS TRANSFERRED TO YOUR ACCOUNT FROM BANK OF AFRICA, I AND MY FAMILY IN THIS TRANSACTION WILL PROCEED IMMEDIATELY TO YOUR COUNTRY FOR OUR OWN SHARE OF THE MONEY.
I EXPECT YOU TO KEEP THIS BUSINESS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND SECRET AS YOU MAY WISH TO KNOW THAT I AM BANK OFFICIAL.
BE REST ASSURED THAT THIS BUSINESS IS 100% RISK FREE ON BOTH SIDE AND EVERY ARRANGEMENT TO TRANSFER THIS MONEY TO THE ACCOUNT YOU ARE GOING TO PROVIDE HAVE BEEN CONCLUDED PROVIDED WE MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECRECEIRITY INVOLVED.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE.
MR HENRY WAX.

I received your mail and i thank you for your urgent responds as well as your interest to champion this transaction. When I got your mail I was very excited. Actually you are not contacted by mistake.
Meanwhile as I made you to know that i have perfected this transaction as 100% risk free before contacting you and i still promised to be given you every developmental information which you will use to back up your claim from the bank hence you will follow every of my instructions to avoid any mistake. This amount in question belong to one of our bank deceased customer, who died in a plane crash with his family and since then nobody has come to the bank as the relatives or next of kin for the claiming, but when i see the opportunity, I followed it up immediately for the betterment of my family. So you should not panic or relent hence I am here to protect your interest .I am a families man with kids and you know any business without trust, is just like a building without foundation.
I am happy to share this transaction with you, but you must keep everything as top secret and very confidential. The deceased account holder with our bank was Mr SALLA KHATIF a LEBANESE national who nationalised here in Burkina Faso for (16) years. He held account number BOA/0036101101 with our bank. He died in a plane crash with his family .Since his death, this account has been dormant and no body has applied to our bank for the release of this money to him or her as the next of kin.
As the bill and exchange manager of this bank, i have studied this transaction very carefully and i have noted that there is no risk involved. I am here to protect all your interests in this transaction until this money hits your account.
My advise to you is to arrange for a receiving bank account into which our bank shall transfer this money in your favour as a business associate to late Mr Salla Khatif and you have noting to fear since i am here, I shall be giving you all the developmental information?s from the bank as soon as the transaction commence. As soon as you reply this mail, i shall send you the application which you should re type and fax to our foreign remittance director so that within14 working days this money shall be transferred in to your nominated bank account.
Dear friend, i know that you will not disappoint me when this money enter into your account, i have all my hope in this transaction because i shall soon go on resignation after the fund is being transferred into your account, i am a simple banker whose credibility is still intact and with my maturity and understanding, I promise to give the best co-operation.
