This is an abandoned fund that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash in December 2007.

For more information about the prime Minister decision on dormant Accounts visit:
Audit of the year against 2006 informed clearly that it was stated in our Foreign banking rules and regulations, which was signed lawfully that if such fund remains unclaimed till the period of 3 years started from the date when the beneficiary died, the money will be transferred into the Government treasury as an unclaimed fund.
 
However, it is not authorized by the rules guiding our bank for a citizen of Burkina Faso to make the claim of the fund unless you are a foreigner, no matter the country you come from, that’s the reason I contacts you as a foreigner to apply for the claim and transfer of the fund smoothly into your reliable bank account as the next of kin to the deceased, and I assure you that this transaction is 100% risks free.
I agree to offer you 40% in respect of all your assistance for this transaction, 10% will be for the incurred expenses that will be made during the transferring process of this fund in your account, then 50% will be for me being the pioneer of the business. If you are really sure of your, Trust worthiness, Accountability and confidentiality on this transaction contact me and accept not to change your mind to cheat, or disappoint me when the deposited funds are released to you by our bank.
