Good Day, I am Dr. Wilson Kweku, Manager Director of Department of Mineral and Energy (DME) in Accra Ghana, I am making this contact based on my Department needs an individual/company who can help us with the transfer of a contract entitlement. One Late JOHNSON NATHAN, a citizen of United Kingdom did a contract with my MINISTRY in 2008, valued at fourteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars (US$14,500.000) Sadly JOHNSON NATHAN was among the death victims in the January 12 2010 Earthquake disaster in Haiti that killed over 300,000 people. He was in Haiti on a business trip and that was how he met his end. My Ministry management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because he was my friend and I am his manager officer in my ministry. My clint did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the doing this contract, and he was not married and no children. Last three month my ministry Management requested that should give instructions on what to do about his contract funds. I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my ministry Directors happens to know that JOHNSON NATHAN is dead and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I don't want such to happen. That is why am now seeking your co-operation to present you or your company as contractor, and my ministry will release the funds to you. There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. We have reposed our confidences in you and hope that you will not disappoint us. Kindly send me your direct telephone/mobile number to enable me reach you with further details upon your acceptance to help us. It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Ministry Directors to take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds, Your share as compensation in the US$14.5M will be 40%; I and my colleague 60%, my share will assist me to start my own Business in your country . Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response strictly through my personal email address(email@example.com) Best regards Dr Wilson Kweku.
