(RE: TRANSFER OF ($ 72,000.000.00 USD}

We want to transfer to overseas ($ 72,000.000.00 USD) from a bank here in
Ghana, I want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who
will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to
set up
a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can
serve to
receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end
of this
important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will
never let

and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for

the owner of this account is Mr.Chris Marco , a foreigner, and a sailor,
and he
died since 1993. and no other person knows about this account or any thing
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation

but I don't know any foreigner in my life, I am only contacting you as a
foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here,
valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any
with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c
because the
money is in US dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr. Chris Marco is a
