Dear Friend,

I crave your indulgence for the unsolicited nature of this letter, but it was
borne out of desperation and current development. Please bear with me. My name
is Barrister Gorge Akan, a legal practitioner and the personal Attorney to late
Mr. Raymond Beck who died in an air crash along With his wife Mrs. Doreen Beckon
the 31st October 1999 in an Egyptian airline 990 with other passengers on board
(May their soul rest in peace).I know that my client had no living kin but I
went ahead and made several inquiries to their embassy to locate any of my
clients extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful.

You can confirm this from the website below which was published by

I only did so to be double sure of this fact. I have contacted you to assist in
repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get
confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were
lodged, particularly in the Stanbic Bank Ghana where the deceased had an account
valued at about $25 Million Dollars. The bank has issued me a notice that in the
event that no next of kin comes up for the claim, the account will be
confiscated after years if not claimed and we have just about few months.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over years now I
seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the
proceeds of this account valued at US$25 Million Dollars can be paid into your
nominated bank account and then you and me can share the money in the mode. 60%
shall be for me and 35% for you and 5% shall be map out for expanse that are
being made within the transfer.

I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we
may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Please your telephone and fax number urgently needed for further discussion. I
look forward to your urgent response.

Best regards,

Barrister Gorge Akan  Esq.
