After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by ENGR EVANS before they get confiscated, frozen or declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged. Particularly, the BANK OF GHANA where the deceased had an account valued at about Twenty Seven Million United States Dollars (US$27,000,000:00). The management has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account frozen within the next ten official working days.

I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. And this I must do to make sure that this fund is not wasted or end up in the wrong hands.
