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 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

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 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 way

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 the

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
