Hello Friend. I am Mr. Michael Kwame; I work with a bank here in Ghana in West Africa Sub Region as an accounting officer. I have just found out that a foreign customer with A/C NO 122-0000-240 deposited the sum of US$4,500,000.00 in an Escrow Call Account in our bank died since July 2005 without leaving a next of kin to his funds and he has no known family. The bank will return the fund to Federal Government reserve account if it remains unclaimed which will only Favor the Government of Ghana, so I decided to look for a foreigner that will agree to inherit the funds while I prepare grounds for the claim. I deem it important to assure you that this transfer of fund is legal and genuine and will be carried out officially too. The claim itself is overdue and will be given prompt attention by the bank upon your payment request while I'll give you exclusive details and support from here. I am ready to give you 25% of the funds for your support and I also guarantee the safety of your name and details. I'll furnish you with more details upon getting your immediate response to this line +233-24-6992870 Thank you. Michael Kwame
