FROM Dr.BARR. WILLIAM SMITH
BILL AND COMPUTER MANAGER,
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK -ADB
PRIVATE FOR YOU ONLY.
I am the manager of bill and computer at the foreign remittance departmentof African Developent bank(ADB). I am writing following impressive information about you through one of my friends who runs a consultancy firm here. He assured me of your capability and reliability to champion a businees but has no knowledge of this transaction for security reason.
In my departmentn we discovred an abandoned sum of $ 10.5m US dollars (Ten million five hundredthousand US dollars) In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in three years ago in a 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 cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased person as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relatives died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and tow other officials in my department now decided to make this businness proposal to you and release the money into your account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased customer for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we dont want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill for after full four years, the fund will automatically be transfered into bank's treasury.
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after four years, it will be transfered 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 Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
We agree that 20 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for any expenses incured during the curse of transfer and 70 % would be for me and my colleagues. There after I and my colleagues 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 person indicating your bank name, account details, your private telephone and fax numbers for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted .
Upon receipt of your reply, I shall send to you a the text of the application which you will forward to the paying bank introducing yourself and at the same time instructing bank to effect the release of the fund into your account. I must not hesitate to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free on both side as the nature of your business in not connected to this transfer, so you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
You should contact me immediately on email account no: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or the above email as soon as you receive this message to indicate your interest and willingness to co-operate. Trusting to hear from you immediately.
