Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a staff of one of the leading banks in Ghana. I
will give you the name of my bank and other important information if I 
receive a positive reply from you. For security reasons I cannot 
disclose my full identity to you now until I am sure of your 

I work in the operations dept where I serve as account officer to 
numerous customers. One of the customers whom I worked as his account officer was a wealthy diamond 
merchant from America. Because this man was good to me when he was alive, I took it upon myself to 
travel to his country last month, to see if I could locate any of his close relations.

On reaching there I discovered that his only surviving uncle died a few 
months back. I sponsored this trip on my own and nobody in the bank 
knew I was undertaking the journey so I did not present any official 
report of my findings in the bank. 

Now there are two things I could do with regards to the money. First, as his accounts officer, I 
could formally notify the bank authorities that the man is dead and has nonext of kin. In this case 
the money would be forfeited to the government after some time. As a matter of fact this is the 
proper thing I am supposed to do.

Another thing I can do is to arrange for someone else, a foreigner, to 
act as the next of kin of  the late man so that he will claim the 
money. This is the option that I can do to help anybody and myself 
since the money actually is public  fund due to the fact that my friend was a close ally to the 
late brutal  military president that looted 
government treasury.

And that is why I have chosen to do it.

I want you to be my partner. All you would  have to do is act as the 
next of kin of the dead man and the whole money in the account will be 
transferred to your account. As the accounts officer to the late man, I 
have all the necessary documents that will require claiming the money 
in the account. The total money in the account is USD17 million. Your 
share will be 30%, which is USD5,100,000. My colleague and i will share 
70%. Reach me immediately by mail so that I can give you further 

Also provide me you with direct telephone and fax numbers to reach you.

Mr James Michael
