I am Mr. richard martins,a manager in the Bills and Exchange at the
Foreign Remittance Department of one of the leading banks in Ghana. I
am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to 
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 
to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family 
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
guidelines.Unfortunately, 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 
 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 
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 
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
2.Your full name

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

response.Please get back to me at my private email:

Best Regards
