MR UDUDONKA HABA
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
BANK OF AFRICA(BOA)
I am Mr Ududonka Haba, I work in B.O.A(Bank of Africa, Burkina Faso). I came to know of you in my private on-line search for a person to handle this confidential business which requires maximum confidence. A contractor and business commercialist who died in a plane crash,has a total sum of US$12.5M (Twelve million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with our bank and since death occured of him for over years now, no next of kin has claimed his financial balance till date.
It is because of the perceived possibility of not being able to locate any of his relation, the management of our bank under the influence of the remittance office and the Board of Directors, are making arrangements for the funds to be declared "UNCLAIMED BILL" so that the fund will be paid into the Federal Government treasury.
In order to avert this negative development, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin so that the US$12.5M would be released and paid into your bank account as the beneficiary & relative next of kin to the deceased person.
On your reply of acceptance, I shall inform you on how to handle this business, we shall also discuss and agree on our individual shares/benefits as regards to the sharing of the US$12.5M. This is for your benefit and mine too, so I await your urgent response today.VIA:email@example.com
