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&#8217;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

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. Omar Pela (Esq.)
