How are you and your family?hope all is well.I am a staff of Ghana Commercial Bank in Africa. I 
will give you all 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 cooperation. 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 Australia. 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 no next 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 I 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 USD 5, 100,000. 
My own share will be 70%. Reach me Immediately by mail .so that I can give you Further details. 
Also provide me you with direct tel to reach you.
Yours truly,
