PLANE CRASH WEB
(“REMITTANCE OF $25.8 MILLION U.S.A DOLLARS
(CONFIDENTIAL IS THE CASE”)
Compliment Of The Day,
I am Dr Edbein Ahmmed from burkina faso.I want to seek your assistance after
my discovery during auditing in my bank as am the manager of Bill and
Exchange at the Foriegn Remittance Department of BANK OF AFRICA,(B.O.A.) In
my department we discovered an abandoned sum of USD$25.8million US dollars
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along
with his entire family in plane Crashes 2000.
Since his death, we have been expecting his next of Kin to come over and
claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it
as next of Kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking and
financial policies but unfortunately all the efforts proved abortive.
IT is therefore upon this discovery that I decided as the head of my
department 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 bills.
Do not view this as been illegal but an opportunity for us to help enrich
our hope in life instead of the bank converting this much money to the
security funds.You should not nurse any atom of fear as all required
arrangements have been made for the smooth transfer of this funds and your
acceptance is what will crown this effort.
We will conclude this operation within 14 banking days based on the amount
of coperation you will contribute.
Thank you for your understanding as i await your urgent response to enable
me give you more details don’t forget to give me those informations below to
enable me know you very well before we can go ahead in this business,
