FROM MR.HASSAN ALI
BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER,
BANK OF AFRICAN (BOA)
OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO.


Dear Friend


I sourced your email from a human resource profile database in the chamber, I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of Bank of Africa (BOA) here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$14.5million dollars in an account that belonging to one of our foreign customer.Mr Christian Eich who died along with his entire family on Monday, 31 July, 2000 in a plane crash in Paris. Please visit this site that is one of the evidence.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/ world/europe/859479.stm

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 some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines 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 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 for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guideline 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.

I 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 indicated .Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to your designated bank account, you must apply first to the bank as a relation or next of kin of the deceased with a text of application that i will send to you, so i will like you to send to me your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where in the money will be remitted.

Upon 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 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. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

(FILL THIS INFORMATIONS)
1. YOUR FULL NAME :
2. AGE...
3. OCCUPATION...
4. FAX...
5. TELEPHONE...
7. COUNTRY...

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Bank Of Africa (BOA)

What needs to be done is to catch these scammers and get them off a computer completely since all they will do after blocking them over and over from sending you mail and mail and reporting their scamming habbits. If they are not stopped or arrested or if we do not warn those that do NOT know about the scams like this and scamming that constantly goes around, then we will continue to get such things either in our inbox or spam folder every day and it will only get worse.

We need to act or keep complaining and talking about it and reporting it. Otherwise the scammers get the best of us and of other unknown victims

Hello All,

I recently got an email from a Mr. Rachid. He stated that there was an unclaimed sum of money, 22.5 million USD, that he wanted to split with me. I would receive 40%, 5% would go to processing, and he would keep 55%.

Needless to say this has put up all kinds of red flags to me. I'm still trying to investigate this to be 110% sure this is a fake. Let the "Buyer beware".

Dear Friend,
This letter must come to you as a big surprise, please accept my apology for sending you unsolicited mail and please kindly delete this message from your mail box if you are not interested.
My name is Dr.William Adama, I am a Burkinabe citizen and a Banker with a reputable bank here.Bank Of Africa (B.O.A) I occupy the position of Audit and Accountant manger, it is with good spirit of heart I opened up this great opportunity to you hoping that you will not betray this trust. A deceased client of mine died as the result of a heart-related condition on March 12th 2005. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the tsunami disaster on the 26th December2004 in Sumatra Indonesia . For more information:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Indian_Ocean_earthquake

My late Client has a deposit of Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand United State dollars (US$10. 5Million Dollars) left behind here in our bank, I contacted you so I can present you as my late client next of kin, so the money can be transferred to your account and we will share it together at equal share, 50% for you and 50% for me. After that, I shall immediately come over to your country for investment with my own share of the money.
I will like to inform you that I am the only person aware of this after my investigation because my bank has been expecting his next of kin to come up for the claim of this fund but all in vain based on the fact that they all died in the tsunami disaster on the 26th December2004 in Sumatra Indonesia. This is the main reason why I want to make use of this opportunity because I don’t want my bank to transfer the money into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

Please reply immediately with your information including your full names, full address and telephone number for easy communication if you are interested.
I await your prompt response immediately,
Best Regards,
Dr.William Adama.
