It is with trust that I write to you despite the fact that we do not know
each other. I am Barrister Sharlae Chapman, a solicitor at law. I am the
personal attorney to Mr. Steve Rahman, a nationality of your country, who
is working with the Chamber of Mines of South Africa. He is part of the
victim of the violence against foreign nationals in South Africa that led
to almost 50 dead:

He was killed on his way to vacation with his wife when the police envoy
was exchanging gun shots with the South African militants. My client {Mr.
Steve Rahman} deposited the sum of ten million two hundred  and fifty
thousand dollars (USD 10,250,000.00) in Agricultural Development Bank
Group (A.D.B), here in Ghana, with the hope of transferring it to a bank
account in his country. Since his death I have made several inquiries to
your embassy to locate any of my clients relatives, however this has also
proved unsuccessful.

After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his family over
Internet, hence I contact you to stand as the next of kin so that we can
have the chance to apply to the bank and authorities concerned for the
release of the inheritance of ten million two hundred  and fifty thousand
dollars (USD 10,250,000.00) to your account for our own usage only. I am
contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and property left
behind by my late client before the authorities get it confiscated or
declared it as money laundering by the Agricultural Development Bank Group
(A.D.B), where the (Money) was deposited. Particularly, the Government of
my country and the bank where the deceased deposited the sum valued at ten
million two hundred  and fifty thousand dollars (USD 10,250,000.00) in
fixed deposit account has issued me a formal notice to provide the next of
kin in seven official business day. Since then I have been unsuccessful in
locating the relatives, I seek your sincere consent to present you as the
next of kin of  the deceased since you are from the same country with the
late client. Ten million two hundred  and fifty thousand dollars (USD
10,250,000.00) can be claim by you if you can send all the needed
information listed below. You will be given 50% of the money, 45% will be
mine and the remaining 5% will be for expenses incurred along the process,
I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up the
claim. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal



I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that
will protect you from any breach of the law either now or in the future,
also the requirement is your full name and address, to enable me in
getting the AFFIDAVIT OF FACT AND CLAIM CERTIFICATE in your name as the
real next of kin to my late client to facilitate the release of the fund
from  Agricultural Development Bank Group (A.D.B). Your private telephone
number is needed for easy communication.

Best regards,

Sharlae Chapman
