Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. John opare, I decided to communicate to you with my personal email id, for the sake of confidentiality of this transaction.

There had been a deposit worth Twenty Two Million USD (US$22,000,000.00) the fund was deposited for Safe Keeping with our bank by Mohamed Hassan from Libya.  And the fund deposit was made without any next of kin while this offers us the opportunity of having the fund transferred to you as the  sole Beneficiary though the fund was originally deposited by Mohamed Hassan.  We have tried to locate or contact Mohamed Hassan but with no avail.

Mohamed told us that he is a revolutionary fighter.  Maybe he had been killed in the battle for liberating Libya.

I know that if he do not show up or withdraw the fund within a short time, the bank management will surely confiscate the fund and share it among themselves, that is the reason I am contacting you so that we will have the fund transferred to your account rather than have the bank management confiscate the fund.

This transaction is 100% real and there is no risk involved.  It is my desire to release the fund  to you though we have to share the fund as follows, 60% to me while 40% will go to you, if you accept the offer then I will be expecting your urgent and sincere response.  [ ]

Mr. John Opare
