The Head of Internal Auditor
International Commercial Bank (ICB)
Hello Dear ,
I work for International Commercial Bank Limited Accra Ghana (ICB) as head of Internal Auditor. I am writing following a deal in my office that will be of an immense benefit to both of us. In my department,I discovered an abandoned sum of 4,500,000.00 BPS (Four Million Five Hundred Thousand British Pounds Sterling) in dormant account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr.Andres Richard a German citizen who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Concord Air France Flight AF4590 which crashed in Paris on July 25th 2000, including his wife and only daughter. I contacted you to claim the money as the next of kin.
The choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature of your country, particularly due to the sensitivity of the transaction and the confidentiality herein.Now our bank has been waiting for any of the relatives to come up for the claim but nobody has done that. I personally have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for more than 5 years now.
I now seek your consent to present you as the next of kin / Will Beneficiary to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at 4,500,000.00 British Pounds Sterling can be paid to you. This will be disbursed or shared in these percentages, 40% to me and 40% to you ,10% for charity of your choice while the remaining 10% is for any expenses incurred during the transaction while I have secured all necessary legal documents that can be used to backup this claim we are making. All I need is to fill in your names to the documents and legalize it in the court here to prove you as the legitimate beneficiary.
Also I require your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality and absolute Trust no doubt, to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please, provide me with the following as we have 5 days to run it through.
This is very very URGENT PLEASE.
1. Full Name
