In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of USD$18.3M (EIGHTEEN MILLION THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND U.S.A DOLLARS). In an account that belongs to this our foreign customer who died along with his wife and children in the plane crash. 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 somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased, as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin died alongside with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

The request of foreigner in this transaction is necessary because our late customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. On the account of your reliability and trust worthiness, I have decided to contact you in order to transfer the said amount into your nominated bank account, its 100% risk free. Upon receipt of the above mentioned I will send to you by fax or E-mail a TEXT OF APPLICATION which you shall re-type and fax to our foreign remittance Department, for easy execution of the transaction.
