Dear I am Barrister Richard Mensah the personal attorney to late Mrs. Bozena Stadniczuk, a national of your country, who was a gold mining investor in Accra Republic of Ghana. On the 21st of April 2010, my client was involved in a car accident on the outskirts of the city. All occupants of the vehicle, including his family, unfortunately lost their lives. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating her fund which she left behind in a bank here before it get confiscated by the Bank. Particularly, the deceased had an amount 12.7 Million US Dollars, after notification of my client death, the Bank has issued me a notice to provide the relation/next of kin or the Fund will be confiscated within the next 90 days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives all this while, that’s why I seek your consent to purport you as the next of kin of the deceased, as a foreigner and that will benefit you and I. The sharing of this fund will be agreed between you and I, If you are interested write me with your email and telephone number, reply me with this email: email@example.com Regard. Barrister Richard Mensah
