FROM: DR KOFI ANSAH. AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT. FOREIGN OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT. NATIONAL INVESTMENT BANK. ACCRA MAIN BRANCH. 122 RING ROAD OFF KNIGHTS STREET, CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT. P.O BOX 543 ACCRA. ACCRA GHANA. REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL OF $10,500,000.00. Dear Friend, I am Dr David Williams, the Director in charge of Auditing and Accounting section national Investment Bank in West Africa and also Chairman of Investigating and Auditing Department of this Bank. With due respect and regard, I have decided to contact you on a Business Transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us and our families in future. During our Investigation and Auditing in this Bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to one Deceased Mr.Morris Thompson 61years, of Fairbanks, Alaska America who died on January 31st 2000 with Alaska Airlines Flight 261.You can as well confirm it by yourself through under stated Website of the incident:http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ Mr.Morris Thompson, a foreigner, As the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation because he did not indicate any next of kin to this account incase of death such as these. Although personally, I keep this information secret within myself and partners to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and successful during the time of execution. The said amount is U.S $10.5m (Ten Million five hundred thousand United States Dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through one of my good friends who works with Chamber of Commerce on foreign business relations here in Accra-Ghana though I did not disclose the deal to him. Meanwhile as a Senior Staff in this bank, and the Director of Auditing and Accounting, I have in my possession all the necessary documents to perfect this deal by making you the bonafide next of kin/Partner whom this money will be transferred into your account. I need your assistance and co-operation to get this deal done. Because as a foreigner, you stand a better position to be presented through documentation as the next of kin/Partner since the deceased is also a foreigner, this is the reason why I could not do this deal alone as a Ghanaian and a Blackman as well. I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sum as gratification, while 1% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while 64% willbe for me and my partners. Please, you have been advised to keep this a "Top Secret" as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. And I assure you that this transaction will not last more than 10 working days and you confirm the money in your account. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account. And ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal. I am expecting your urgent reply as soon as you receive this message. Regards, Dr KOFI ANSAH
