Dear Greeting to you,

I am a staff of one of the leading banks in Ghana. I will give you the name of my bank and other 
important information if I receive a positive reply from you. For security reasons I cannot 
disclose my full identity to you now until I am sure of your cooperation. I work in the operations 
dept where I serve as account officer to numerous customers. 

One of the customers whom I worked as his account officer was a wealthy diamond merchant from 
America. Because this man was good to me when he was alive, I took it upon myself to travel to his 
country last month, to see if I could locate any of his close relations. On reaching there I 
discovered that his only surviving uncle died a few months back. 

I sponsored this trip on my own and nobody in the bank

knew I was undertaking the journey so I did not present any official report of my findings in the 
bank. Now there are two things I could do with regards to the money. First, as his accounts 
officer, I could formally notify the bank authorities that the man is dead and has no next of kin. 
In this case the money would be forfeited to the government after some time. As a matter of fact 
this is the proper thing I am supposed to do.

Another thing I can do is to arrange for someone else, a foreigner, to act as the next of kin of  
the late man so that he will claim the money. This is the option that I can do to help anybody and 
myself since the money actually is public  fund due to the fact that my friend was a close ally to 
the late brutal  military president that looted government treasury. And that is why I have chosen 
to do it.

I want you to be my partner. All you would  have to do is act as the next of kin of the dead man 
and the whole money in the account will be transferred to your account. As the accounts officer to 
the late man, I have all the necessary documents that will require claiming the money in the 
account. The total money in the account is USD17 million. Your share will be 30%, which is 
USD5,100,000. My colleague and i will share 70%. Reach me immediately by mail so that I can give 
you further details. Also provide me you with direct telephone to reach you.
