International Commercial Bank ICB,
Accra-Ghana West Africa .

Dear Sir,

I am Mr Otto philipx, one of the Directors in charge of Auditing and Accounting section, at the International Commercial Bank in Accra , Ghana , West Africa .

With due respect and regard, I have decided to contact you on a Business Transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us and our families both now and in the very near future.

During our Investigation and Auditing in this Bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to one Deceased Mr. Morris Thompson 61 years, of Fairbanks , Alaska , United states of America who died on January 31st 2000 aboard an Alaska Airlines Flight 261. You can as well confirm it by yourself through the under-listed Website. As the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody, either from his immediate family member or relations, because he did not indicate any next of kin to this account incase of his in timely death such as this.

Although personally, I keep this information secret within myself to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and successful during the time of execution.

The said amount is Twenty Five Million, five hundred thousand United States Dollars (US$25.5m). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through one of my good friends who works with Chamber of Commerce on foreign business relations here in Accra-Ghana though I did not disclose the deal to him.

Meanwhile, as a Senior Staff in this bank, and the Director of Auditing and Accounting, I have in my possession all the necessary documents to perfect this deal by making you the bonafide next of kin/Partner whom this money will be transferred into any receiving bank account co-ordinates that you may wish to present in due course.

I need your assistance and co-operation to get this deal done. Because as a foreigner, you stand a better position to be presented through documentation as the next of kin/Partner since the deceased is also a
foreigner, this is the reason why I could not do this deal alone as a Ghanaian and a Blackman as well.

I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth Conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sum as gratification, while 1% will be set aside probably for any unforeseen expenses that may be incurred during the process of transfer while 64% will be for the Ghanaian side.

Please, you have been advised to keep this as "Top Secret" as I am still in active civil service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with you. And I assure you that this transaction will not last more than 10 working days from the moment that I receive your consent to assist me.

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account, and then invite me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated. Your knowledge and advice of profitable business areas in your country where my share will be invested will be highly appreciated.

All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal. I am expecting your urgent reply as soon as you receive this message. Your direct phone number will be greatly appreciated.

Please get in touch to enable us perfect success strategies,

Best regards 
 Mr Otto Philipx
