I want to start by wishing you and your loved ones good health and prosperity. I am Barrister Jacob 
Frimpong from Ghana. I have a very confidential, profitable and risk free proposal for you. I was 
the personal lawyer of late Mr. Michael Peter Haigh, a Briton who was into Gold and Diamond mining 
here in Ghana before his death. He died along with his family not long ago in car crash. As his 
lawyer and confidant, I was privy to most of his secrets. 
Late Mr. Michael Peter Haigh has a trunk box deposited with a security company here in Ghana. His 
consignment contains the sum of US$45 Million. He did not deposit this consignment in his name 
rather he deposited the consignment in codes. I have the complete codes which will enable anyone to 
easily claim this consignment. Unfortunately I have represented the Security Company in the past so 
I can not lay claim to the money.
I am hereby looking for someone (a foreigner) who can assist me claim this money. I am willing to 
give you 50% of the total sum of US$45 million if you assist me. I assure you that there is no risk 
whatsoever. All the deposit and security keeping fees has already been paid for at the time of 
deposit so all you have to do is follow my instructions to the latter and we shall achieve our 
goal. I will furnish you with more details upon you affirmative interest.
