Bank in Burkina Faso email scams!!

This is another sample of an email scam that has been going on for quite some time now and what they do is ask your bank details so you and he can split up the said money, if there is any. Anyway, never give any information back from this scammers, because the truth is, he will steal your identity and withdraw all your funds from your account. There has also been some bogus about stealing identity from these types of scams, like they take your details and then use your identity for going abroad and work there illegally, so be very careful who you are handing out your details. This kind of deal is just too good to be true and definitely a scam!

I have here a copy of the said email from the scammer just for you to see what it looks like:
