Greetings to you, 

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I
believe it is only a day that people meet and become
great friends/ business partners. I am David Adom,
currently Head of Corporate Affairs Department with a
reputable bank here in Ghana. I write you this
proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you
with the information I am about to reveal to you. 

I have an urgent and very confidential business
proposition for you. On June 5th, 2000, a German
business tycoon Mr. Andreas Schranner made a (Fixed
deposit) for 60 calendar months, valued at
US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million Five hundred Thousand
Dollars only) in my bank and I happen to be his
account officer before I was moved to my present
position recently. 

The maturity date for this deposit contract was last
3rd of April 2005. Before this date, I have tried my
possible best to locate a Next of Kin to late Mr.
Schranner, but all efforts proved abortive, because
all his family, including his Son In-Law and children
died in the plane crash of Concorde Air France Flight
AF4590 which took place on 25th July 2000, some months
after he did the deposit in my bank. You can read more
story about the plane crash by visiting this website; With the
recent change of government in my country and with
their efforts to support the United Nations in
checkmating terrorism aid in Ghana. 

By end of April next year, the Government will pass a
new Financial Control Law which will give the
Government authority to interrogate account owners of
above $5 million Dollars to explain the source of the
funds, making sure it is not for terrorism support. If
I do not move this money out of the country
immediately, by October the Government will definitely
confiscate the money, because my bank cannot provide
the account owner to explain the source of the money
since he is late. 

I decided to utilize this life time opportunity,
instead of Government confiscating the, but I cannot
directly claim the money without the help of a
foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an
assistance. As the Account Officer to late Mr.
Schranner, coupled with my present position and status
in the bank, I have the power to influence the release
of the funds to any foreigner that comes up as the
Next of Kin to the account, with the correct
information concerning the account, which I shall give
you. I am having the secret Code for the account,
which only the account owner or his Next of Kin can

I shall supply all necessary information we need for
the claim and there is practically no risk involved,
the transaction will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of
law, beside Ghana is porous and anything goes. If you
accept to work with me, I want you to state how you
wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both
parties will be satisfied. I shall explain to you in
details how we shall handle the transaction once I
receive your response. Thanking you in advance and may
God bless you. Please, treat with utmost

I shall send you copy of the deposit slip issued to
Mr. Schranner when the deposit was made for your

I wait your urgent response. 
Regards, David Adom.
