Dear Sir/Madam
Before I proceed, I must first apologize for this unsolicited letter to you. I am aware that this 
is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, but I do have 
limited choice. My name is Barrister Richards Boateng (ESQ) a Solicitor working with GBA (Ghana Bar 
Association) with address: Block 7,Road 32, Airport residential Area, Accra Ghana. My Client, Late 
Allen S Wong from USA, a business mogul who is a consultant to Ghana petroleum Company,lived in 
Ghana for many years, my client, his wife and their one child were involved in an automobile 
accident in the Volta region Here in Ghana.
Before his death, he has a deposit of $8.5M (EIGHT MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS) in a 
well known bank here in Ghana. The bank has mandated me to present the heir/next of kin for claims, 
before the money gets confiscated or reverts as unclaimed fund. So I decided to search for any of 
my late client's relative which has been very difficult for me, as he did not declare any other 
person, address, partner or relatives in the official paper works of his deposit.
Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the 
next of kin to my client, with my position as his lawyer, I will now appoint and recognize you as 
the heir. I will obtain every relevant document from the probate to make your claim legal. Note 
that this process is not risky in any manner and it is completely legal but might not be justified 
morally. He was my private client, I will not like you to involve any third party in this 
transaction, just me and you .Besides I am doing this on my own personal capacity and do not wish 
to bring my office into it. Once the fund is released to you, I am proposing 40% of the total sum 
to you for your involvement, why i would retain 60% for myself.
Note that when the whole documents are ready, it would be your responsibility to approach the bank 
and make application for the release and transfer of the funds. If this proposal does offend your 
moral values please pardon me.
Please be kind to get back to me if you are not interested so that I can further my search for 
another partner.
Best Regards
Richards Boateng (ESQ)
