Dear Friend

It is with great pleasure and honesty to get across
to you for a very urgent and profitable business
proposal, and it is of great interest that we relate
to each other well hence from this moment despite the
fact that I don't know you neither have I seen you
before but my confidence was reposed on you when I came across your contact in one of the directory 
for an independent foreigner company/individual who can represent
my interest well as I search for a credible overseas
partner to do business with.

I am the Eldest son of late Mr.Ansar Mensah. My father
while he was alive was a very successful business man
and also a very lovely father.I and my family came to
realised that he had deposited (Money) with a
financial Institute by name Westcoast security company
which total the sum of US10 Million (Ten Million
U.S.Dollars) about 2 years before his death in 2004.

Until today My self and my Family member has made
several attempts to collect the funds from the
security company but all our effort has proved
abortive because my father before he died gave a standing
instruction to the  Then administrative manager of the
Financial Institute that in case of his enventuality(
he was suffering from Cancer of the Liver) under no
Condition should this funds be released to us without
Members of my family providing/presenting a reputable
investor who will stand as our family investor and
present a good investment plan before the money can be
released to us.

Now with all the conditions of the Financial Institute
as placed by my late father, I would want you to front
as my family investor so that we can successfully
collect this funds ($10m)from the Financail institute.

After the collection of this funds, we can indeed go
into a profitable investment that would be recommended
by you otherwise we would all go separate ways if you
want. In actual fact,we already have a Copy of the
Certificate of Deposit in our possession and this we
will use to perfect all necessary documents and swear
to an affidavit of claims in a court of law to back up
your claims that youare our investor for the past 5

The whole procedures will last only four working days
to get the Box containing the money (US$10Million)
retrieved successfully.

Your response is only what we are waiting for as we
have arranged all necessary things. As soon as this
message comes to you kindly get back to me indicating
your interest, Then I will furnish you with the whole
procedures to ensure that the deal is successfully

For your assistance we shall agree on a percentage
sharing when we've come into an agreement but i am
willing to give you 15%. while 5% will cover any
expense you and i may eventually incure in collection
of the Fund.

Please for security reasons, all futher correspondence
should be address to ( ) only.

I await your earliest response.

Yours Sincerely,
Ansar Mensah Jr.
