Dear Friend,                         
                                                  I NEED YOUR HELP.
I am Mr.James Uwaoma, the Offshore Payment Officer at the INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK LTD and close friend to Late Mr. Mathew Fowler, from your country. First, I got your contact address through YOUR COUNTRY WEBSITE DIRECTORY. In my files I discovered that my customer abandoned sum of US$18.5Million (Eighteen million Five Hundred Thousand United states Dollars) in our bank INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK LTD. On a record before my department I was made to know that on the 1st of June 2004, him and his family were involved in a car accident along Kumasi-Aburi Express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. After these several unsuccessful attempts, to see his relatives because of the deposited fund in our custody.
Since I got information about his death, My office has been expecting his next of kin to come over and make claim of this money which is currently deposited in our custody because the INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK LTD can not release it directly to me or any other person unless somebody applies for the release of it as next of kin to the deceased as indicated in our mutual agreement (Between THE DECEASED and the INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK MANAGEMENT),unfortunately his supposed next of kin died along with him at the Fatal auto crash. It therefore upon discovery the ugly news that I now decided to make business with you to direct you on how to apply with this office (INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK LTD) to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my friend before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank. The request of a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that my customer was a foreigner and the next of kin died been the wife died alongside with him and also a citizen of Ghana cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over Three years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are from the same country so that the proceeds of this account valued at USD$18.5million can be paid to you and then you and l can share the money. 60% to me and 40% to you, I have two necessary legal documents that can be used to backup any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.
Please endeavour to contact me immediately through my private and confidential E-mail. Expecting a positive response soonest.
Sincerely yours,
Mr.James Uwaoma.
