Another Nigerian Money Scam!

Ever heard of Burkina Faso?Geography 101: Burkina Faso is a little landlocked country in the "hump" of West Africa...I'd never heard of it - until today! Literally, "Burkina" translates as "men of integrity," so I had a good chuckle when one of its 'Men Of Integrity' spammed me, suggesting I might be interested in 40% of US$18.5million!
Dear friend,
I am Mr Moha Das a staff of Banque Internationale du Burkina (B.I.B) here in Burkina Faso / Ouagadougou. In my department I discover an abandoned sum of (US$18.5 Million US Dollars) in an account that belong to one of our foreign customer who died along with his family in plane crash.
It is therefore upon this discovery that i now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for the safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it.
I agree that 40% of this money will be for you, and 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me. Then after the money is been transferred into your account, i will visit your country for an investment under your kind control.
You have to contact my Bank directly as the real next of kin of this deceased account with next of kin application form which i will send to you immeidately i hear from you.
I am waiting for your urgent respond to enable us proceed further for the transfer.
Yours faithful
Moha Das
