Dear friend ,
It might interest you to know how I got your contact. Well it is for good and I got your contact through my private search in the internet for a matured and reliable foreign partner. I am a banker working with one of the reputable banks here in Accra, the capital of Ghana. For a very long time now I have been in exclusive custody of private banking information of one of our bankâs customers; a Lebanese who was running gold and diamond business here in Africa but unfortunately died in a plane crash along with his family without leaving any written [WILL].News of the crash that took his life can be found here:
I have made several unsuccessful efforts over the years to locate any relation of his but to no avail, and the time is approaching when the bank might recycle it into the bankâs assets as unclaimed fund. The amount is involved is $25,000,000 and the main essence of my
communication with you is to seek your cooperation in recovering this fund with 100 percent perfection considering the action plan I have set up.
I can facilitate the release of this money within 21 banking days, providing to you the correct paperwork as the entitled beneficiary of the fund. I want you to do this business with me and we will agree on the percentage to donate to charity and to help the less privilege in both your country and in my country anonymously. Then with the remaining fund we may either enter into 50/50 joint investment in your country with the fund under your management if you will agree, we shall share it 40/60 for you and I respectively while 10 percent will be set aside to offset the overall cost of the transaction.
Let me assure you once again that this business will not last more than 21 days and I will apply for a leave on health ground in order to be granted an opportunity by my bank to stay away from work. That will be my chance to visit you in your country for reimbursement or signing of investment partnership contract.
Please note that this business is free from risk but needs uttermost confidentiality. Immediately the fund is transferred I will enter our transaction archive room to retrieve and destroy all evidence of the transaction and there will be no trace to any place.please write me back through my private email box(email@example.com).
Mr.Philip Asata ,
