FROM MR. DANIEL ISSOUF
The Manager, Auditing & Accounting Dept.
Bank of Africa (BOA).
I am MR.DANIEL ISSOUF. THE MANAGER, AUDIT AND ACCOUNTING DEPT. BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) in Ouagadougou , Burkina Faso .
In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of (US$18,700,000.00).
EIGHTEEN MILLION SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES 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 are victims of AF4590 in 31st July 2000 plane crash.
we got the 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 guidelines and laws, but
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.
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 person 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.
law and guidelines here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after ten 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 Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
have agree that 30% of this money will be for you as a respect to the
provision of a foreign 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
Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this
fund to you, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of
kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective
communication and location where in the money will be remitted.
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 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.
Trusting to hear from you immediately.
MR. DANIEL ISSOUF.
Manager, Auditing and Accounting Dept.
