Today, from the desk of...

Apparently Basil Traore considers me to be very trustworty. Boy, am I thankful that atleast someone in Burkina Faso thinks that way. Now, do people in Burkina Faso also get this fellow's emails? If so, they should be able to kick some ass. For us, its just the entertainment. How many more million versions of this are we going to receive?

FROM THE DESK OF MR. BASIL TRAORE,
DIRECTOR.
OFFICE OF THE CHAIRMAN,
CONTRACT AWARDING COMMITTEE.
EUROPEAN UNION CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT.
BURKINA FASO. WEST AFRICA.

Dear Friend,
I am BASIL TRAORE the Chairman of Contract Awarding Committee of the EUROPEAN UNION CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT(EUCC) in BURKINA FASO West Africa.I got your information in a business directory from the Burkina Faso Chamber of Commerce and industries, when I was searching for a reliable, honest and trust worthy person to entrust this business to. I was simply inspired and motivated to pick your contact from the directory. After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues, they were satisfy and decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship.

We wish to transfer the sum of USD$5.800,000.00 (five million eight
hundred United States Dollars only.) into your personal or company's bank
account.This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by
us for the supply of equipments, hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/medical items
relating to constructing tool's, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and
other administrative logistics etc. for the Burkina Faso Projects. This DEAL
was deliberately hatched out and carefully protected with all the visible
loop holes and sealed off. As the Chairman of CAC, I have the cooperation
and mandate of the Financial Director and the Secretary of theOrganisation.

We arranged over invoice of the contract funds, supplies by different companies from different countries. It was our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide us with the facilities to transfer this money out of Burkina Faso.

This is borne out of our belief in the non-stable and porous political nature of this sub-region.The original contractors have been duly paid by the Bank of Africa Ouagadougou-Burkina-Faso in West Africa. (Bank of Africa, Ouaga-Burkina-Faso in West Africa). Through our bankers - Societe Generale de Banque. This balance is suspended in the escrow accounts awaiting claims by any foreign company of our choice. We intend to pay out this fund NOW as the organization is winding up its activities and the coast have been achieved.

Based on the laws and ethics of employment, we as civil servants working under this organization, are not allowed to operate a foreign account. This is the more reason why we needed your assistance to provide an account that can sustain this funds for safe keeping and our future investment with your comprehensive advise, assistance and partnership in your country.It is however agreed, as the account owner in this deal to allow you 30% of the entire sum as compensation, 60% will be held on trust for us while 10% will be used to defray any incidental charges and expenses during the transaction. This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 days
if you accord us your unalloyed and due cooperation. You are required to
provide the followings;

1.YOUR COMPANY'S NAME WITH COMPLETE ADDRESS. TELEX AND FAX NUMBERS. (if available)

2.YOUR COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS INCLUDING TELEPHONE NUMBERS.

Upon the receipt of this information, the documents and approval with the text will be sent to you for confirmation and then forwarded to the organization for rectification and subsequent payment. As with the case of all organized (sensitive) and conspired DEALS, we solicit for your unreserved confidentiality and utmost secret in this business. We hope to retire peacefully and have a honorable business life after all. There is no risk involve in this business. I suggest you reply me back for more intimacy and details. You can reply through my alternative email as follows;
trbasil@plasa.com
Yours Faithfully,
Mr. Basil Traore.

Hey man ,
Please avoid such mails. A couple of years ago there was this scandal where a couple of Europeans left to AFrica cause they were promised of some money , actually lots of it.

Their bodies were found in their hotel rooms neatly sliced into 32 parts.

so..............

Best,
sam
