A Letter From Burkina Faso


With due respect to your person and much sincerity of purpose, I make this contact with you as I believe that you can be of great assistance to me. My name is Dr. Ibrahim Abdoul Aziz, from Ouagadougou Republic of BURKINA FASO , West Africa . Presently I work in the African development Bank as telex manager. I have been searching for your contact since you left our country some years ago.I do not know whether this is your correct email address or not because I only used your name initials to search for your contact .In case you are not the person I am supposed to contact, please see this as a confidential message and do not reveal it to another person but if you are not the intended receiver, do let me know whether you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is top secret. 

I am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new life but I am sceptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger. You must assure me that everything will be handled confidentially because we are not going to suffer again in life.It has been 10 years now that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas through the help of their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa were gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer. 

I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act; I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over $5b Dollars during the process .As I am sending this message to you, I was able to divert thirty five million united state dollars ($35m) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is anxious now to know who the beneficiary to the funds is because they have made a lot of profits with the funds. 

It is more than Eight years now and most of the politicians are no longer using our bank to transfer funds overseas. The ($35) Million Dollars has been LAYING waste but I don't want to retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account to enable me share the proceeds with the receiver. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you.There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured everything. I only want you to assist me by providing a bank account where the funds can be transferred. You are not to face any difficulties or legal implications as I am going to handle the transfer personally. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me give you DETAILED information on what to do. For me, I have not stolen the money from anyone because the other people that took the whole money did not face any problems. This is my chance also to grab my own but you must keep the details of 
the funds secret to avoid any leakages as no one in the bank knows about the funds. 

Please get back to me if you are interested and capable to handle this project I shall intimate you on what to do when I hear from your confirmation and acceptance. If you are capable of being my trusted associate, do declare your consent to me,for security reasons please reply me through my privet E-mail address ( )Waiting for your urgent response. 

Yours Faithfully, 

Dr. Ibrahim Abdoul Aziz

Pernah dapat kiriman email serupa ? saya sering!. Dalam sehari bisa 8 email serupa masuk ke folder spam. Jangan buru-buru dibuang. Daripada mubadzir kan asyik buat belajar bahasa Inggris. Hahaha ya saya paham bener ini penipuan. Karena niatnya belajar bahasa Inggris saya pernah iseng reply email macam begini. Awalnya dengan data-data palsu. Trus si pengirim email bersemangat mereply email saya untuk diarahkan ke pihak pura-puranya officer bank. (Hmm sambil mikir : wow bahkan untuk penipuan kelas internasional harus disetting sedemikian rupa). Kemungkinan besar email-emailan semacam ini akan berakhir pada kita diminta sejumlah uang untuk fee fransfer. Saya belum sempat cek hingga langkah terakhir karena saya udah gemas duluan dan reply terakhir saya tulis : Please understand that i am poor lady. I do not have enough money. My husband is jobless. With all my respect If you just want to cheat please stop and live in honour. Hahaha bahasa Inggris gado-gado macam yang saya tulis itu rupanya cukup dimengerti sama si penipu, buktinya dia ngga reply email saya lagi :D

Satu hal yang membuat saya penasaran. Mengapa sebagian besar email penipuan ini mengaku dari Burkina Faso. Iseng saya googling info mengenai Burkina Faso.
Burkina Faso adalah nama baru dari negara Volta Hulu. Sebuah negara yang terletak di Afrika Barat. Nah kalau Volta Hulu ini saya masih sedikit ingat-ingat dulu ada nama negara seperti ini di buku yang memuat negara-negara anggota PBB. Buku itu dibeli Papa untuk memperkaya pengetahuan anak sekolah macam saya. Ternyata di Tahun 1984 nama Volta Hulu berubah menjadi Burkina Faso. Ibukota Burkina Faso adalah Ouagadougadou. Kalau di peta Burkina Faso ini berbatasan dengan Ghana, Togo, Mali dan Nigeria. Dahulunya negara ini adalah jajahan Perancis. Meski tergolong negara miskin dan sering dilanda kudeta ternyata Burkina Faso menyimpan kekayaan alam berupa tambang emas dan memiliki  industri kapas yang cukup besar. Ada yang kira-kira tahu mengapa banyak penipuan mengatasnamakan Burkina Faso ? Mungkin karena kondisi negaranya dengan sosial politik yang tidak stabil sehingga memudahkan mengaburkan opini masyarakat luas. Biasanya di negeri yang sering ribut begini kisah-kisah tentang harta karun menjadi santapan utama media :).

Tertarik ke Burkina Faso ? aish saya pengennya ke Bunaken dan Raja Ampat dulu candi Prambanan juga boleh deh kan Borobudur sudah ^_^
