Dear Partner,

I apologies for sending this mail to you but this is a
matter of urgency and I would like to clarify this
matter with you my name is Mr. Richards Emiko,
Solicitor and financial Consultant to late Mr.
Andreas Schranner a property magnate and building
contractor based here in the Ghana.

On the 25th of July 2000, my client Andreas Schranner,
64, his wife Maria, 62, their daughter Andrea Eich,
38, her husband Christian, 57, and their children
Katharina, eight, and Maximilian, 10, died in the Air
France concord 990 plane crashes over Hotelissimo on
July 25, 2000.They were bound for New York in their
plan for a world cruise. For more information about
this crash and people, visit this


Since then I have been managing his investments here
in the Ghana and on his direction liquidated these
investments into cash and deposited the proceeds into
his local account.

My client was a successful and an accomplished family
man, who made enough fortune before his untimely
death. He left behind a large deposit in his
investment account in financial institution here upon
his death the financial institution contacted me as
his financial consultant and attorney to provide them
with a next of kin or Foreign partner since the person
he provided for them died with him in the crash
leaving a vacuum to be filled.

I had made several inquiries on my own to locate his
next of kin but all has proved unsuccessful. I even
contact his country¡¯s embassy here. Two weeks ago, the
bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to
provide his next of kin or his foreign business
partner/associates based on the Agreement he sign that
the fund can only be relased or transferred to his
next or kin(His family) or any foreign partner for the
payment of this fund within 28 working days or forfeit
the money to the bank as abandoned by the owner with
no trace of next of kin. The bankers had planned to
invoke the abandoned property decree of 1936 to
confiscate the funds after the expiration of the
period given to me.

I tried to locate a next of kin on my own but had no
head. Despairing at the point of exhaustiveness, I
contacted the His consulate here in the UK and
fortunately, they forwarded some crew from where I get
to contact you.

I am convinced that it was by the grace of God that
made me to locate you. Hence my mail to you It is my
belief that you may be reliable to me to present as my
client foreign partner for the claim, I therefore,
decided to contact you with these facts before me
because of the urgency of the situation presently.

By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his
immediate family, I am very much aware of my client
financial standing. I have reasoned very
professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to
present you as the next of kin or foreign partner of
my deceased client so that you can be paid the funds
left in his bank account.
I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin
or foreign partner to the Deceased since you are
qualified so that the full proceed from his Bank
Account valued at $12.2 Million Dollars can be paid to
I am proposing a negotiated commission for my legal
services. I have all the required information and
shall assemble all the necessary Legal Documents that
will be used to back up our claim all I require is
your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal

I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law. Trust me as his personal consultant
that this is a risk-free transaction. Please get back
to me immediately.

I will bring you into a more detailed picture of this
transaction when I hear from you.

All reply

e-mail for further correspondence.

Mr. Richards Emiko
