Another Internet Scam: From Mr. Kayon Munage

FROM MR.KAYON MUNAGE. 
ASSISTANT TO THE FOREIGN REMITTANCE DIRECTOR, 
BANK OF AFRICA OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO. 


Dear Friend, 

I know that this email will come to you as a surprise and I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that I’m about to repose on you for mutual benefits of our families. I am the assistance to the foreign remittance director of Bank of Africa Burkina Faso. 

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($10.5USD) Ten million five hundred thousand United States dollars to your account within fourteen banking days. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of ($10.5USD) Ten million five hundred thousand United States dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died without any nomination of the next of kin to the bank. 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 next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking policies but unfortunately for years now non of his relations has applied for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I 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 I don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill. 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 have agreed that 40 % of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, and 60 % would be for me. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. 

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will give you full details on how the business will be executed. Please kindly contact me as soon as you receive this proposal: through this address: kayonmunage777@gmail.com 

Come up with the information's stated below: 

1. Your full name: 
2. Your contact cell phone number: 
3. Your age: 
4. Your sex: 
5. Your occupations 
6. Your country and city: 

Looking forward to your urgent reply over my letter.

Yours Faithfully, 
Mr. Kayon Munage.
