Dear Friend, I am Barrister Kwame Agati, a legal practitioner, I am the personal attorney to a national Of your country, who used to work with a Gold Mining Company here in Accra Ghana. He used to be my client. On the 21th October, 2006, my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Kumasi express Road here in Ghana. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. 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 repartrating the fund valued at US$6.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge amount were deposited. The said bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confiscated within the next twentyone (21) working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Best Regards, Barrister Kwame Agati, Esq. Email: email@example.com
