I know we have not met in person but I have a very profiting proposal which I am sure you can 
handle. My name is barrister Fransico Thompson QC. I am a Barrister and a member of the Queen's 
Council (QC) working with the reputable legal firm - Prudent Chambers in Accra Ghana and I am only 
contacting you to help claim deposited funds made by one of our clients who was involved in a fatal 
auto crash accident with his wife and was flown to london medical hospital and they later died. 

Late engr. Mark clement mohammad was a personal client of mine and I managed all thier legal 
affairs. Today, I stand as the only custodian to the deposit he and her wife made in Time Express 
Bank here in accra ghana and now I am faced with the task of providing a beneficiary for the cliam 
of the fund.The amount deposited by my late clients is ($10,600,000 (Ten Million Six hundred 
thousand United States Dollars Only) and the bank is ready to release the money to whoever I 
present as the beneficiary and the next-of-kin to my late clients because my late clients issued me 
a Power of Attorney duly endorsed in the Ghana High Courts of Justice 
when they made the deposit and I was thier legal advising counselor on the deposit and other 

Now the Bank where my client deposited the fund demands that I quickly provide a claimant for the 
fund because the deposit duration has expired and needs a renewal or withdrawal from their bank 
otherwise it will be handed over to the government. Because I have not been able to provide anyone 
due to my fears of releasing the money to someone who might run away with it, I am being very 
careful about this. I have however decided to try and do this deal with you whether you are truly 
related to my clients or not and I pray you will not run away with the money when they release it 
to you. I will arrange to formalize your papers so that you can be approved as next-of-kin to my 
late clients and the fund can be released to you immediately. 

I will draft an agreement between you and i for the sharing of the fund as soon as you accept to 
assist in this transaction. I agree to share fifty-fifty with you but we must bear serious 
responsibilities on both sides to ensure the release of the fund into your account.please if you 
are interested in this transaction, kindly furnish me with your private telephone and fax number, 
your full name and address to enable us move forward.You may get back to me via my direct email the almighty God bless you.
