FROM MENINI MUSTAPHA
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO
WEST AFRICA.

Dear Friend,

I am Mr.Menini Mustapha, the manager of bill and exchange foreign
remittance department of African Development Bank (A.D.B) Bank, In my
department there was abandoned sum of (EURO 15.5m Euros)(Fifteen Million,
five hundred thousand Euros) in an account that belongs to one of our
foreign customer, who died along with his entire family on Friday, December
10th, 2010 in plane crash with Airbus A320 Plane.

Since we got information about his death, the bank has 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 decease as
indicated in our banking guidelines and laws, but unfortunately we learnt
that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him at
the plane clash leaving no body behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business
proposal to you so that the ban can release the money to you as the next of
kin or relation to the decease for safety and subsequent disburse it
between us 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 guideline here stipulate that if such money remained
unclaimed after Five years, the money will be transferred into the bank
treasure as unclaimed fund. The request of a 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. I agree that
40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the
provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred
during the business and 50% will be for me.

Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as
arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to
the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account, your private
telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location
wherein the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send
to you by email the letter of application.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch-free
and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required
arrangements have been made for the transfer.

I am looking forward to receive your urgent and positive reply to my
private e-mail address ([email protected]).

Yours faithfully
Mr. Menini Mustapha.

Dear Friend, Mr. Thomas Francis;

I am happy to receive your positive reply in regards to my business
proposal to you. Below is the explanation of the business. The whole
process will be legal because all the documents that will be used will
come from the ministry of justice to prove its legality.

I am working with a reputable bank here in Burkina Faso, west Africa
as a manager. There was a big customer of the bank that deposited a
huge sum of money (15.5million euro) in our bank and unfortunately, he
died in a plane crash along with his wife and children on their way
home for a short holidays.

He deposited the money for a few months for him to come back and
continue his business with the money. As this man died, he registered
his wife as the next of kin but he died along with his wife, children
and there is no other information to trace this man's family member as
none was recorded during the filling of the deposit form.

The bank tried to locate a relation who will come and claim the money
on behalf of the family of the deceased but all efforts proved
abortive. So, the bank has given up in search of a relation and
concluded that whoever comes with reasonable information about
thedeceased, the money will be released to him or her. Now, the only
information of the deceased the bank knows are the ones registered in
the deposit form which is in his file with the bank.

As i am a banker and has all the information recorded in the bank
which the bank needs, i am willing to release the information to you
on demand of the bank to prove that you know the deceased very well. I
will provide every information ok. You will provide an account where
the fund will be transferred into so that we will share it together. I
will come to your country as soon as the business is over to take my
share.

I promise you that there is no risk in this deal. Since i am working
in the bank, i will protect your interest and mine interest too. I
have taken care of all intending loop-holes that may arise during
processing and after claiming the money. After we have successfully
claimed the funds in your bank, you will take 40% of the total money
and i will take 50% while 10% will be set aside for the expenses we
will incure in the process of claiming the funds to your bank account.

I wait for your next mail.

Regards,
Menini Mustapha.

The funds in question was deposited in our bank by a business man for
about three months. Unfortunately, the man died along with his family
in a plane crash when they were traveling to there country. Since
then, the bank has been waiting for any one that knew him to come

reason, i want you to stand as the relative to the deceased so that we
can claim the funds and share. Any information the bank requires from
you, i will provide that. Your country of origin does not matter in
this case. I work in the same bank and know everything about it and
the way out. I have done underground properly to make sure everything
workes out smoothly for our favour.

My intention is to come down to your country and estabblish with my
share and you will help me to invest it in a lucrative business
venture. There is no risk involve in this business. In case you are
afraid, you will not come here for anything, anything bank wants you
to do, you will tell me and i will tell you hwat to do and the matter
will be solved. Your work is to receive e-mail from the bank and
inform me and i will advise you on the reply. If you send your bank
information, i will monitor the process and inform you.

If there is any specific area you want me to explain to you again, let
me know so that we will start the business and make sure the money is
transferred tyo your account before the year ends.
