Subject: Hello Dear Friend,

Hello Dear Friend,

First of all, I would like to apologize for my intrusion into your private life. I am an internal archivist in a bank and I have just discovered a bank account of $8.5M USD dollars(Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars American), belonging to an Iranian businessman who was murdered in tragic conditions. This account was opened in our bank in 2005 and since 2012, since its death no transaction or movement has occurred on it.

According to my investigation with his notary and also meticulously consulted all the archives and files relating to this account there is no more beneficiary and in 2 months the account will pass under the tutelage of the public treasury. In complicity and agreement with his notary I want the bank to recognize you as the beneficiary of this account and as soon as you have rights to the account, you will make transfers according to a sharing that will be established. For a bank employee there is a multitude of ways to recover money on an account but I wanted to follow this one because It is the guarantee that we will have no problem. The fact that you are not present on the territory is the factor that will facilitate the transfer of account ownership because this operation is practically impossible for someone resident in Burkina Faso because the deceased holder left clear instructions to the bank and To his notary.

This is a risk-free transaction because the money will be transferred legally since you will be the account holder after a procedure of transfer of ownership of account approved by the notary. I discuss all this with him and he agrees to sign the documents that will be submitted to him in exchange for a 40% transfer as soon as you are recognized rights.

I have with me all the documents that will allow us to facilitate the procedure concerning the transfer of the funds. I will give you all the details if you agree to treat this matter with the utmost discretion.

It is not that I am naive in making you such an offer for someone I barely know, but it is the only way to get these funds legally.

I need your frank collaboration and I hope that I will not regret this act, I take this opportunity for you leave my personal e-mail address: ([email protected])

Waiting to read you receive the expression of my sincere greetings.

Mrs. Diane Nignan Costa

Archivist and Manager / BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) of Burkina Faso
