Dear, I got your email address via my search over the internet for a reliable partner . I have been in search of someone of how best we can assist each other. I am Mr Ali Musa, a Bank Officer here in Ghana. I believe it is fate for me to come across you now. I am having an important business discussion I wish to share with you which I believe will interest you, because it is in connection with someone based in your country, you and i are going to benefit from it. One Late Peter, a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit with my bank in 2005 for 108 calendar months, valued at US$15,500,000.00 (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) the due date for this deposit contract was last 22nd of January 2013. Sadly Peter was among the death victims in the May 11 2007 fatal accident in Ghana involving seven vehicles near Awutu-Effutu-Senya district in the Central Region of Accra where thirty-five people were killed on the spot.Read article; http://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/artikel.php?ID=123861 My bank management is aware of his death but under this current account Mr Peter did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management instructed me as the account manager to Mr Peter to try and see if i can reach out to any of his next of kin and that is why i have contacted you to act be the next of kin to Mr Peter , because if my Bank Directors happens to know that Peter does not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your last name I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you have the same last name with him and my bank head quarters will release the account to you. There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, 50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own company which has been my dream. Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response strictly through this my personal email address on Have a nice day and God bless. Anticipating your communication. Best Regards
