Dear friend, Good day to you, infact the inspiration to contact you is divine am Barr. Omar Pela, an attorney at law, the personal Attorney to Mr.Andereas Shranner, a national of your country the Chief Executive/President of Kutner Associates Company in Ghana. On the 2nd of August 2003, my client, his wife and their only child were involved in a car accident along Nkrumah Express Road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives, as his son to whom he willed his assets was also involved in the accident. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I eventually came across one of Mr. Andrea’s Shranner distant cousins who resided in Indonesia .We commenced the process, but unfortunately, he lost his life in the recent Tsunami Disaster, which claimed over 175,000 people, barely 2 weeks after we met. Bewildered by this occurrence, and coupled with the fact that it's not compulsory that the next-of-kin must be a blood relation to the deceased, since the next-of-kin can be anybody, your friend or organization (Charity Organization). I have contacted you to assist me retrieving the funds in a certain investment account of his valued at about $18,500,000.00 (Eighteen Million Five Hundred United State Dollars only left behind by my client before they got confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Finance House where these huge deposits were lodged. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, I now seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you are from the same country. Upon my receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the necessary modalities. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up your claim as the next-of-kin, all I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me immediately you acknowledge the good receipt of this mail via return mail Anticipating your prompt response. Best Regards, Barrister.
