i wanted to reply and make fun of this poor poor chap
but i thought the F community could get amused by giving this guy a reply in a F.com sauce.
[quote]FROM THE DESK OF : DR BELLO USMAN,
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING SECTION,

I am Dr Bello Usman, the Director in charge of Auditing and Accounting
section of AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK (A.D.B) Ouagadougou Burkina-faso
Africa. With due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a
business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the
of the transaction .
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
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 7.5M (Seven Million,Five Hundred Thousand
States Dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive
information through internet directory . Meanwhile all the whole
to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the
the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has
put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to
soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist, 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
country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not allowed to operate a
account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the
transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it
require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of
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
to your own designation bank account.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk
smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of
total sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of
expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone
internet bills, while 60% will be for me and my coleagues. Please, you
been adviced to keep “Top Secret” as I am still in service and intend
retire from service after we conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you
the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for
subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously
and further investment, either in your country or any country you
to invest in. All other necessary vital nformation will be sent to you
I hear from you.
I look forward to receive your phone and fax numbers for easy
