Dear Friend,



I am Mr. Mike Addo, The Manager Foreign Operation Department Of International Commercial Bank (ICB) Ltd In Republic Of Ghana .In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of (USD3.9 Million) Three million and Nine Hundred Thousand United States Dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (Mr. Thomas Hashem) who died along with his entire family in a plane crash in Republic of Benin on Dec. 26, 2006 without any reference to the trace of the relatives or next of kin. In accordance with the Ghana inheritance Laws, if such money remained unclaimed after 3(Three) years without nobody applies as the relatives or next o kin, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury account as unclaimed fund.



I now decided to contact you and present you to stand and proved a foreign bank account for release and transfer of the money into your bank account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased since nobody is coming for the claim.



I agree that 50 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 50 % would be for me.


I assure you that this business is 100% risk free.





Mr, Mike Addo
