Subject Are You Capable and Ready?

Hello Friend,

Compliments of the season!!!

I am Mr.Nicolas Kadiogo the director in charge of Auditing and Accounting Department of BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)OUAGADOUGOU,BURKINA FASO IN WEST AFRICA, and also the account officer of (MR.ROBERT RICE FROM OHIO,UNITED STATES OF AMERICA)who died on 31st of October,1999 in a plane crash.For more informations about the crash you can visit this sites: http://www.zenpageweavers.com/malika...nal/flight.htm and
http://www.cnn.com/US/9910/31/egyptair.families.02/

Before the death of the deceased,he had a fixed deposit account that worth the sum of US$5.2M (Five Million Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)with the above mentioned Bank and no other person outside the bank knows about this account or any thing concerning it,and since we got information about his death we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his fund because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin,relation or business partner to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidlings and laws,but the account has no other beneficiary because my investigation proved that his supposed next of kin died along with him in the crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the fund to you as the next of kin,relation or business partner to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this fund to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.The banking law and guidline here stipulates that if such fund remained unclaimed after (Ten Years)it will be transfered into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund,and i don't want that to happen that was why i offered this to you.I agree that 40% of the fund will be for you as a compensation for the provision of a foriegn account and your financial assistance,and 60% would be for me as the originator of the transaction.

As soon as you confirmed the total fund in your account,I will visit your country for disbursement of the fund according to the percentage indicated above and for investment too.Also,I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

If you are willing,capable and ready to assist me on this transaction wholeheartedly,kindly furnish me with the following details as thus:
1. Your full names & address.
2. Your age, sex, & marital status.
3. Your current occupation.
4.Your Direct Telephone and fax numbers.
5.Your Bank Account Informations

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged,I will prepared an Application Of Claim with my position Upon receipt of those required information,and submit it to the bank on your behalf as relation,next of kin or business partner of the deceased for the release of the fund to your account.

Your prompt reply is highly needed to enable us concludes this transaction without any delay.

Thanks and be blessed.

Your's Sincerely,
Mr.Nicolas Kadiogo.

I am also showing you this so that you can be alert.

By the way: Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouagadougou. And the e-mail is scam / spam.
