urgent and very confidential business proposal for you. On June 6, 1999 an America Gold 
Consultant/Contractor here in Ghana, Mr. Andreas Peterman, a German Nationality, the Manager of 
European Commission - Sponsored ECOWAS Statistics Development Project {ECOSTAT} made a numbered 
time (fixed) deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at 9,700,000.00(Nine Million Seven Hundred 
Thousand Dollars )in my branch.

Upon maturity at the end of October 2005, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address 
but got no reply. After a month, I sent a reminder and finally discovered from his contract 
employers that he died in the plane crash of Bellview Airlines Flight No. B3210 which crashed at 
Lisa Village near Ifo Ogun State in the night of Saturday 22nd, October 2005 and unfortunately lost 
his life with other passengers/dignitaries abroad as you can confirm yourself via BBC and other 
News agencies: On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL. When all 
attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless, I therefore made further investigation and 
discovered that he did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, 
including his bank deposit paperwork in my bank. This sum of 9,700,000.00(USD) is still in my bank 
and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum. No one has ever come forward to claim 
it. According to Ghana banking law, at the expiration of Six (6) months, the money will revert to 
the ownership of the Ghana Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. 
Andreas Peterman so that the fruit of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some 
corrupt Government Officials. This is simple; I will like you to provide immediately your Full 
Name, Full Detailed Address accompanied with your Direct Phone Number so that the Attorney will 
prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin. We 
shall employ the service of one attorney for the drafting, notarization of the WILL and obtain the 
necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the payment of this 
money to you as the beneficiary / next of kin.

The money will be paid in your name for us to share in ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you. There 
is no risk at all; the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position 
as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.

Go ahead to get in touch with me on my private phone: 00233 242 586 894 Otherwise my private 

Yours truly,

TEL:    00233 242 586 894
