National Security Vault,
I am Jerry AK Morrison, a Ghanaian married with three kids, the Chief Security of Operations Officer of National Security Vault (NSV) Accra - Ghana. I write to solicit your kind assistance for business investment of mutual benefit.
In November 2007, one Mr. Hussien Omar Iraq National, who deal on gold business in Ghana and Asia, whom I was his deposit manager, he made a numbered time deposit of trunk box, valued at US$10,500,000.00 (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars) for twelve calendar months in our company. Upon Maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered that Mr. Hussien Omar from Iraq, his wife and two children and wife's parents died in a suicide bomb blast attack in Iraq.
My investigation proved that he died with his supposed next of kin in the bomb blast. The trunk box which he deposited as gold contents is still in our company and the demurrage is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one has come forward to claim it. Consequently, I shall present you to stand in as the next of kin to late Mr. Hussien Omar. Thus, upon acceptance of this proposal, I will give you detailed information on how this deal would be carried out. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law as I will use my position as the chief security operations officer to secure approvals and guarantee the successful execution of this transaction as you apply for the release.
I want you to handle everything for me. I have the trust in you and I know that you will not disappoint me; I don't need to know you for many years to trust you it's all about successful business deal. If you have an idea of what should be done to carry the money out of Africa, please tell me I need your advice seriously and I have the impression that you are a nice gentle person. Please reply directly to my private email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Awaiting your urgent reply.
Jerry AK Morrison.
