I am Mr.Gerald Oniel,a manager in the Bills and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department of 
one of the leading banks in Ghana. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation 
to carry out this business opportunity in my department.
We discovered an abandoned sum of $12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand United 
States Dollars only) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers (Late Mr.Morris 
Thompson)who died in an air crash along with his family (wife and only daughter) in Feb 4th, 2000 
in an Alaska Airlines Flight 261 with other passengers on board. You can confirm this from the 
website below from publisher by
Since we heard of his death, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to come over and put claims for 
his money as the heir,because we cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies 
for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.Unfortunately, 
neither their family member nor distant relative has everappeared to claim the said fund.It is in 
our banking guideline that if none of the relatives come up to claim this fund after 7years of the 
death of the late customer,the fund will be regarded as an unclaimed bill and will be transferred 
to the bank's treasury account.
Upon this discovery, I and other officials in my department have agreed to make business with you 
and release the total amount into your account as the heir of the fund since no one came for it or 
discovered he maintained account with our bank,otherwise the fund will be returned to the banks 
treasury as unclaimed fund.
We have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as stated thus;30 % for you as foreign partner,65 
% for us the officials in my department and 5 % for the settlement of all local and foreign 
expences incurred by us and you during the course of this business.
Upon the successful completion of this transfer, I and one of my colleagues will come to your 
country and mind our share. It is from our 65% we intend to import Agricultural Machineries into my 
country as a way of recycling the fund.
To commence this transaction,we require you to immediately indicate your interest by a return 
e-mail with the following information:
1)Your private telephone and fax number
2.Your full name
Upon the receipt of this,i will inturn get back to you and give you the mordalities for the bank to 
approve you as the next of kin.
Note also, this transaction must be kept because of its nature.I look forward to receiving your 
prompt response.Aternate Email,
Best Regards
Gerald Oniel
