Soliciting for Partner I am Mr., Philip Waluta and am from Ghana (West Africa) am sending you this message with very high regard and respect because we have not met or known our self’s before now. Am a director of a private finance and investment company here in Ghana, the name of the company is called (Tenerif Finance and investment company). My reason for sending you this message is, I was having a client that was involved in an air craft accident in the year (2000) with Kenyan airways and his name is Mr. Nicolas Bentopson and he was a (Gold Miner in Ghana) who unfortunately died with his entire family in the said crash. We have being trying to establish a contact forum but since then nobody has come up to us as his brother or next of kin to claim the deposit he is having with us amounting to the sum of (twelve million seven hundred th ousand united state dollars only) and this amount is directly under my control and I have the final say on were and who can claim the fund. Now my basic purpose of contacting you is, if you can work with me as a partner to claim this amount and send it to a bank account out side Africa which you will nominate and also have total control of, all the paper work are in order, all I will need from you to make this transaction a success, is your complete name and address, date of bath, drivers license, private phone number, I am going to submit this information as the next of kin to late Mr. Nicolas Bentopson who wants to claim the fund and I will sign the approvals immediately for the fund to be transferred or paid to you in cash as it was deposited, the good thing is that you will not be required to come to my office in Ghana to sign any official document, because as soon as I get a positive respond from you with the information I ask you to send to me, I will immediately reroute the fund to our sister company in Europe for easy collection. Now this is the most important part of the transaction which is the sharing, everything will be shared openly because we are all going to incur expenses one way or the order either by phone calls or travelling and some logistics so 40% for you and 50% for me and my partner and 10% will be set aside for any expenses. Please be rest assured that all modality concerning this transaction are under control by me so do not worry about the safety, just be very honest with me and trust should be our watchword because I will be very open to you as a partner and a friend. I sincerely hope that this is the beginning of a long and ever lasting relation-ship between us. Thanks and stay blessed. I am attending a seminar in Spain so you can call me on phone number 0034-666 373 280, but all detailed reply should be directed to my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Mr. Philip Waluta.
