My name is Mr Ahmad Mandy, I am the Credit and Audits Manager with Bank
of Africa Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.I am contacting you with respect to
transfer the sum ($22.500,000.00) Twenty-Two Million, Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollar) deposited by a major supplier of
Agricultural Equipments in West Africa named Mr Christian Eich who die
along with his family on 31st July 2000 in Concorde Air Crash.Through
my investigation, I find out that he die along with his next of kin and
the roll-over on the funds has also expire because the bank law
stimulates that after Fifteen years where the next of kin did not
appear for the claim funds, the fund will transfer into bank treasury
as unclaimed funds. In order to avert this negative development, I will
like to seek for your permission as a foreigner to stand as the next of
kin to Mr.Christian Eich so that the fruits of this old man's labour
will not be use for financing government. The money will be paid into
your account for us to share in the ratio of 50% for me and 50% for you
and any expenses incurred in the course of the transaction will be made
by both of us.There is no risk involve in this project as my position
in my bank and with the aid of my personal information I will be
provided to make you the legal beneficiary and the legality of this
project will correspond with local and international laws of
inheritance.Upon your response, I shall then provide you with further
information and modalities that will help you understand the
transaction.You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured
that this project would be most profitable for both parties because I
shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
