DEAR SIR / MADAM, I am Barrister.Kofi Afi, a solicitor at law and a personal attorney to( Late Mr. Giulia A. Gaelle, A foreigner ) here in after shall be referred to as my client. My client worked as an independent contractor to the Ashanti gold Company here Ghana. On the 21st of JANUARY 2002 my client, his wife and their only daughter were involved in a(BOMB EXPLOSION) unfortunately they were among the casualties. Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my client's extended relatives but to no avail. I have contacted you to assist in retrieving fund valued at Forty five Million five hundred United States Dollars only ($US45, 500,000.00) left behind by my client with a security deposit Company in (Madrid Spain) before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the security company where this amount is deposited. Before his demise, he never motioned having any relatives nor cousins. After several attempts to trace any of his relative, I decided to contact you. One fact and truth remains clear, that anybody I present to the Finance company as his next of kin, shall inherit the fund and it is based on this fact that I ask you to get back to me immediately so that we will discuss on terms of partnership in this issue so that I will forward your name to the security company as his legitimate next of kin backed up with a sworn affidavit of oaths from the magistrate court of ghana. Be advised that this transaction is confidential and secret,as regard my legal status. I will brief you more as soon as i hear from you. Please get back to me through this e mail: email@example.com Thanks yours Barrister kofi Afis Esq. Principal Attorney, Ghana
