Hello, 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. Sincerely Barrister Jacob Frimpong
