Waiting to hear from you urgently.Friday, February 13, 2009 9:39 AM From: "Noble Sana" <>

Dear friend,

I am a senior staff of bill and exchange unit at foreign remittance department Societe Generale Des Banque Au Burkina (SGBB)

I am writing to you, following the impressive information received about you from the chambers of commerce. I believed that you are capable and reliable to champion this business opportunity.

In my department i discovered an abandoned sum of US $12.5m us dollars in an account that belonged to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family on 31st July,2000 Concorde plane crash [flight af4590] with the whole passengers aboard, the name of the deceased man was (Mr. Andreas Schranner), from Munich, Germany.

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 guidelines but unfortunately i learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that i now decided to make this business proposal to you, so that the bank can 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 bill.

The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after six years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand in as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for tax and expenses to be incurred during the business and 55 % 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 a relation or next of kin of the deceased customer but that will be when you have shown interest to assist me in this transaction then i will forward to you the text of application with the bank address where the application will be sent to by you as the next of kin to Mr Andreas Schranner.

Upon receipt of your reply, i will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is 100% hitch and risk free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully, Mr Noble Sana.
