FROM THE DESK OF MR.KOUTABA JEAN
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
BANQUE DE L'HABITAT AU BURKINA FASO (BHBF)
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO. 

                                                                                         (CONFIDENTIAL)
I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW YOU WILL FEEL RECEIVING A SUDDEN BUSINESS LETTER FROM A
REMOTE COUNTRY IN FAR AWAY BURKINA FASO WEST AFRICA AND PROBABLY FROM SOME
 ONE YOU HAVE NOT CLOSELY RELATED WITH. BUT ALL THE SAME, I BELIEVE WE DO NOT NEED T
O BE OF BLOOD RELATIVES BEFORE WE CAN ESTABLISH CORDIAL/BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.
HAVING SAID THIS, I THINK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AT THIS JUNCTURE TO INTRODUCE MYSELF TO YOU. 

I AM.MR.KOUTABA JEAN THE DIRECTOR IN CHARGE OF AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING SECTION OF
 BANQUE DE L'HABITAT AU BURKINA FASO (BHBF) OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO WEST AFRICA.
 IT IS MY PLEASURE TO SOLICIT YOUR ASSISTANCE  IN THIS BUSINESS PROPOSAL. I AM CONTACTING YOU BECAUSE,
I DO NOT WANT TO TRANSACT THE BUSINESS WITH ANYBODY WHO IS KNOWN TO ANY STAFF OF THIS BANK OR ANYBODY
AROUND HERE TO AVOID ANY POSSIBLE BLACKMAIL OR LEAKAGE AT THE END OF THE TRANSACTION.

THE PROPOSAL:
DURING OUR INVESTIGATION AND AUDITING IN THIS BANK,
MY DEPARTMENT CAME ACROSS A VERY HUGE SUM OF MONEY BELONGING TO A DECEASED
PERSON WHO DIED IN A PLANE CRASH AND THE FUND HAS BEEN DORMANT IN HIS ACCOUNT
WITH THIS BANK WITHOUT ANY CLAIM OF THE FUND IN OUR CUSTODY EITHER FROM HIS FAMILY
OR RELATION BEFORE OUR DISCOVERY TO THIS DEVELOPMENT.THE SAID AMOUNT WAS U.S $5.5M
( FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) AS IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO KNOW,  

MEANWHILE ALL THE WHOLE ARRANGEMENT TO PUT CLAIM OVER THIS FUND AS THE BONAFIDE
NEXT OF KIN TO THE DECEASED, GET THE REQUIRED APPROVAL AND TRANSFER THIS MONEY TO A
FOREIGN ACCOUNT HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE AND DIRECTIVES AND NEEDED INFORMATION WILL
BE RELAYED TO YOU AS SOON AS YOU INDICATE YOUR INTEREST AND WILLINGNESS TO ASSIST US
AND ALSO BENEFIT YOUR SELF TO THIS GREAT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. IN FACT I COULD HAVE DONE THIS DEAL
ALONE BUT BECAUSE OF MY POSITION IN THIS COUNTRY AS A CIVIL SERVANT(A BANKER )
WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO OPPERATE A FOREIGN ACCOUNT AND WOULD EVENTUALLY RAISE AN EYE BROW
ON MY SIDE DURING THE TIME OF TRANSFER BECAUSE I WORK IN THIS BANK. 

THIS IS THE ACTUAL REASON WHY IT WILL REQUIRE A SECOND PARTY OR FELLOW
 WHO WILL FORWARD CLAIMS AS THE NEXT OF KIN WITH AFFIDAVIT OF TRUST OF
 OATH TO THE BANK AND ALSO PRESENT A FOREIGN ACCOUNT WHERE HE WILL NEED
THE MONEY TO BE RE-TRANSFERRED INTO ON HIS REQUEST AS IT MAY BE AFTER DUE VERIFICATION
AND CLARIFICATION BY THE CORRESPONDENT BRANCH OF THE BANK WHERE THE WHOLE MONEY
WILL BE REMITTED FROM TO YOUR OWN DESIGNATION BANK ACCOUNT. 

I WILL NOT FAIL TO INFORM YOU THAT THIS TRANSACTION IS 100% RISK FREE. ON
SMOOTH CONCLUSION OF THIS TRANSACTION, YOU WILL BE ENTITLED TO 40% OF THE
TOTAL SUM AS GRATIFICATION, WHILE 5% WILL BE SET ASIDE TO TAKE CARE OF
EXPENSES THAT MAY ARISE DURING THE TIME OF TRANSFER AND ALSO TELEPHONE BILLS,
WHILE 55% WILL BE FOR ME AND MY PARTNER. PLEASE, YOU HAVE BEEN ADVICED TO KEEP "TOP SECRET"
AS I AM STILL IN SERVICE AND INTEND TO RETIRE FROM SERVICE AFTER WE CONCLUDE THIS DEAL WITH YOU. 

I WILL BE MONITORING THE WHOLE SITUATION HERE IN THIS BANK UNTIL YOU CONFIRM
THE MONEY IN YOUR ACCOUNT AND ASK ME TO COME DOWN TO YOUR COUNTRY FOR
SUBSEQUENT SHARING OF THE FUND ACCORDING TO PERCENTAGES PREVIOUSLY INDICATED
AND FURTHER INVESTMENT, EITHER IN YOUR COUNTRY OR ANY COUNTRY YOU ADVICE US
TO INVEST IN. ALL OTHER NECESSARY VITAL INFORMATION WILL BE SENT TO YOU WHEN I HEAR FROM YOU. 

YOURS FAITHFULLY,
MR.KOUTABA JEAN

  3. Elaine Dietz says:

    Have you heard of a Alejandro Javier who claims that he is dying of Leukemia and his wife died with no children. He wants to give his illegally obtained money to charity and give me 20% for my time. Says he found my email online and sent picture of passport of himself with birthdate and expiration date, still good. Says money is in a Bank in England and wants me to help.Says extended family will keep it for themselves and that he wants to give money to charity. 24 million dollars. I think he is Mexican and in a hospital in Spain showing pictures of himself undergoing therapy but not likely to live long. Is it possible that this is real. I don’t like the idea of illegally obtained money. He wants to make peace with God now. Is it unsafe to communicate with this person who says he wants some i.d. from me now and I am the only one who can help because he has little time to live.

    • Remy "Se7en" says:

      Dear Elaine Dietz,

      All I need to say is this REEKS of a scam. A very common scam at that.

      Q: it possible that this is real ?

      A: Yeah, it is very remotely possible. But VERY VERY unlikely the way you have explained it to me. My best advise is to stop all communications with this person and provided no information to him / her what so ever.

      If this person was going to give money to someone it is is very doubtful he woudl do it in that way. Why not give it to a church or cancer foundation if he / she wants to make peace with G-d ?

      In the end it is way to risky to engage in this type of behavior online. Now off line it is still not a good idea but there is more likely to be more checks and balances to determine if this is legit or not.

      I hope that answers your questions. But if not just comment back or e-mail us me @ computer.savvy@hotmail.com.

      Later Dayz,

      Remy “Se7en”
