Greetings to you,

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day
that people meet and become great friends/ business partners. I am Mr. Albert
Poku, currently Head of Corporate Affairs Department with a reputable bank here
in Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust
you with the information I am about to reveal to you.

I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June
5th, 2000, a German business tycoon Mr. Andreas Schranner made a (Fixed
deposit) for 60 calendar months, valued at US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million
Five hundred Thousand Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his account
officer before I was moved to my present position recently.

The maturity date for this deposit contract was last 3rd of April 2005. Before
this date, I have tried my possible best to locate a Next of Kin to late
Mr.chranner, but all efforts proved abortive, because all his family, including
his Son In-Law and children died in the plane crash of Concorde Air France
Flight AF4590 which took place on 25th July 2000, some months after he did the
deposit in my bank. You can read more story about the plane crash by visiting
this website; With the recent
change of government in my country and with their efforts to support the United
Nations in checkmating terrorism aid in Ghana.

By end of April next year, the Government will pass a new Financial Control Law which will give the Government authority to interrogate account owners of above
$5 million Dollars to explain the source of the funds, making sure it is not
for terrorism support. If I do not move this money out of the country
immediately, by October the Government will definitely confiscate the money,
because my bank cannot provide the account owner to explain the source of the
money since he is late.

I decided to utilize this life time opportunity, instead of Government
confiscating the, but I cannot directly claim the money without the help of a
foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an assistance. As the Account
Officer to late Mr.Schranner, coupled with my present position and status in
the bank, I have the power to influence the release of the funds to any
foreigner that comes up as the Next of Kin to the account, with the correct
information concerning the account, which I shall give you. I am having the
secret Code for the account, which only the account owner or his Next of Kin
can know.

I shall supply all necessary information we need for the claim and there is
practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law, beside
Ghana is porous and anything goes. If you accept to work with me, I want you to
state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both parties
will be satisfied. I shall explain to you in details how we shall handle the
transaction once I receive your response. Thanking you in advance and may God
bless you. Please, treat with utmost confidentiality.

I shall send you copy of the deposit slip issued to Mr. Schranner when the
deposit was made for your perusal.

I wait your urgent response.
