Dear Sir, As a matter of Introduction,please i am Dr. Brenard Arzumah the Auditor General of International Commercial Bank,Kaneshie First Light Branch, Accra-Ghana. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On May 20, 1999, an Iraqi Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the BRITISH PETROLUEM CORPORATION in collaboration with Ghana Crude oil refinary and marketing Company. MR. DARA BARAZ.Made a numbered time (Fixed deposit) for 24 calendar months,valued at US$20,200,000.00 (Twenty Million two hundred thousand dollars only) in this bank. Upon maturity in 2001, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Ghana Crude Oil Refinary and marketing Company that Mr. Dara Baraz died as a result of torture in the hand of Sadam Hussein during one of his trips to his country Iraq. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that mr Dara Baraz 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 US$20,200,000.00 have been floating as unclaimed since 1999 in my bank as all efforts to get his relatives have hit the stones. According to the Ghana Banking law and rudments of operations,at the expiration of 6 (six) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Ghana Government if nobody applies to claim the fund and the six years was the end of November 2005. Consequently, my proposal is that i want to seek your consent as a foreigner to stand in as the owner of the money as the next of kin to the deceased so that the bank will transfer the money to your designated account. All documents and proves to enable you get this fund will be carefully worked out. I have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries, and more so I are assuring you that the business is risk free involvement. Your share stays while the rest be for me and for investment purpose as i will leave Ghana by the end of the year. The sharing of the funds will be based According to agreement within me and you. As soon as i receive an acknowledgement of receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business proposal, I will furnish you with the necessary modalities and disbursement ratio to suit both parties without any conflict. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust i have bestowed in you. PLEASE, APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT DOING BUSINESS OVER THE INTERNET IS RISK.ENDEAVOR TO SEND YOUR CONFIDENTIAL TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBER IN YOUR REPLY TO THIS BUSINESS. Sincerely.
