Another Internet Scam: From Mr Ahmed Bello

I NEED YOUR URGENT ASSISTANCE!

Hello....!!

I work with a bank In West Africa, Burkina Faso .I have a business transaction for you.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $10.5 Million US Dollars .In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in car bomb in Iraq.

Since his supposed next of kin died along side with him at the Bomb blast, there is nobody to claim the left over balance in the account. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department decided to seek your assistance and present you to the bank as his Next of kin.

If you accept I would give you the guide lines of how we can achieve this transfer of the balance (10.5Million Dollars) to your account. And we will shear the money 50-50%.

I expect that you will give me your telephone and fax numbers for easy communication with you and for more details.

Best Regards
Mr Ahmed Bello
