FROM THE DESK OF DR NELSON. BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER, BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) ACCRA, GHANA WEST AFRICA DEAR FRIEND,Let me start by introducing myself.I am Dr. NELSON KUFFO The Bill And Exchange manager Bank of africa Ltd.I have an obscured business suggestion for you. Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client crude oil dealer MR.HUS BEN AN AMERICAN who was with the Iraqi oil industries and also oil supplier to republic of ghana made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of eighteen million five hundred Thousand United State Dollars($m18.5,000,000,00) only in my branch.Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003.Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him.
We later find out that the oil dealer MR HUS BEN along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home. You can read more about the bombings on visiting these sites below:
And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank So, EIGHTEEN POINT FIVE MILLION Thousand U.S Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 4 years the fund will Be reverted to The BankTreasury As Unclaimed Bill if nobody apply to claim the funds. Against this ,my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to MR HUS BEN so that you will be able to receive his funds.
Then after i and my colleagues will visit your contry for disbursement acconding to the percentage indicated. therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased, you will also send to me your bank name,your bank account number,your private telephone and fax numberfor easy and effective communication and location where in the fund will be remitted,also you can write me through my private email address(email@example.com).upon receipt of your reply i will send to you by fax or email more details of this operation. Your earliest respond to this letter will be appreciated.
Thanks DR NELSON KUFFO B.O.A (BANK OF AFRICA) This is not junk _________________________________________________________________Live.com: le nouveau moteur de recherche par Messenger! http://www.windowslive.fr/livecom/
