I am Mr. 
richard martins,a manager in the Bills and Exchange at the
Remittance Department of one of the leading banks in Ghana. I
writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to carry
out this business opportunity in my department.

We discovered an 
abandoned sum of$12,500,000.00 (Twelve Million Five
Hundred Thousand 
United States Dollars only) in an account that belongs
to one of our 
foreign customers who died along with his entire family a
wife and two 
children in November 1999 in an auto crash.

Since we heard of his 
death, we have been expecting his next-of-kin to
come over and put 
claims for his money as the heir,because we cannot
release the fund 
from his account unless someone applies for claim as
the next-of-kin to 
the deceased as indicated in our banking
neither their family member nor distant
relative has everappeared to 
claim the said fund.It is in our banking
guideline that

if none of the 
relatives come up to claim this fund after 6years of the death of the 
late customer,the fund will be regarded as an unclaimed
bill and will 
be transferred to the bank's treasury account.

Upon this discovery, I 
and other officials in my department have agreed
to make business with 
you and release the total amount into your
account as the heir of the 
fund since no one came for it or discovered
he maintained account with 
our bank,otherwise the fund will be returned to
the banks treasury as 
unclaimed fund.

We have agreed that our ratio of sharing will be as 
stated thus;30 %
for you as foreign partner,65 % for us the officials 
in my department
and 5 % for the settlement of all local and foreign 
expences incurred by us
and you during the course of this business.

Upon the successful completion of this transfer, I and one of my
colleagues will come to your country and mind our share. It is from our
65% we intend to import Agricultural Machineries into my country as a 
of recycling the fund.

To commence this transaction,we require you 
to immediately indicate
your interest by a return e-mail with the 
following information:

1)Your private telephone and fax number

full name

Upon the receipt of this,i will inturn get back to you and 
give you the
mordalities for the bank to approve you as the next of 
Note also, this transaction must be kept
because of its nature.I 
look forward to receiving your prompt

response.Please get back to me
