Société National D' Electricité Du Faso (SONABEL)

Subject: Business Proposal Dear one,

I know you may be surprise to read from me since we have not met before, but as a matter of fact, I have a lucrative business at hand which I feel may attract your interest.

I work with the Burkina Faso Electrical company known as Société National D' Electricité Du Faso (SONABEL) as a director under the contract award committee. Over the past years, contract worth millions of US dollars where awarded to a foreign company for the installation of electricity in some areas Kadiogo .

The contractor has completed his contract and part payment have being made to the contractor remaining the balance worth millions of dollars which supposed to be paid before he died in a fatal car accident on his way to Bobo Doiulaso from Ouagadougou the capital city of the country along side with his entire family.

After his death, SONABEL now gave me the authority as the head of the contract award committee to confiscate the fund if none of his business associate comes for the fund. As faith will have it, our office was attacked by a group of protesters who were angry over the 50% increment on house hold items and food stuffs. During this riot, they set up our main office on ablaze all the important files and documents destroyed by fire including all the hard disk that contains contract information's.

As a result of this, I saw it as an opportunity for you to come in as a business partner of the deceased contractor with some tangible proofs which I shall make available to your reach to enable us claim the remaining contract payment if only you will adhere to my rules and advice since I am part of the scene.

Please accept my apology for not revealing more information like contract amount, contractors name and so on as I am only trying to keep the authentic information confidential until I am satisfied of your ability to champion this transaction

On the receipt of your willingness to continue with me, I shall then release more vital information to your reach.

Waiting for your quick response.

Regards, Mr.Saidou Kere
