You can as well confirm it by yourself through under stated Website of the incident http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ As the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation because he did not indicate any next of kin to this account incase of death such as these. Although personally, I keep this information secret within myself. Meanwhile as a Senior Staff in this bank, and the Manager of Auditing and Accounting, I have in my possession all the necessary documents to perfect this deal by making you the bonafide next of kin/Partner whom this money will be transferred into your account. I need your assistance and co-operation to get this deal done. Because as a foreigner, you stand a better position to be presented through documentation as the next of kin/Partner since the deceased is also a foreigner,this is the reason why I could not do this deal alone as a Ghanian and a staff of the bank as well. I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth Conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as gratification, 5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while 65% will be for my investment. Please, you have been advised to keep this "Top Secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with you. And I assure you that this transaction will not last more than 10 working days and you confirm the money in your account. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account. And ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment,either in your country. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal. I am expecting your urgent reply as soon as you receive this message. God bless you And your family. Best Regards, Mr. John B Alhassan.
