I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6,1999, a Foreign Diamond consultant/contractor with the Sierra Leonean National Diamond Corporation, Mr.Simon Kelly made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$27,(Twenty-Seven Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, I sent a reminder and finally I discovered from his contract employers, the Sierra Leanean National Diamond Corporation that Mr. Simon Kelly died from a rebel attack. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Simon Kelly did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of USD$27,(Twenty-Seven Million Dollars) has carefully/confidentially been moved out of my bank to a Finance security company in Accra capital of Ghana and deposited in the treasury department for safekeeping. No one can ever come forward to claim it without getting a letter of authorization from my office in the National Investment Bank Kumasi.According to Ghana Financial Law, at the expiration of 8 (eight) years,the money will revert to the ownership of the Ghana Government if nobody applies to claim the fund, this explains why I initiated this deal with my deputy because I need good money to invest after retirement from civil service. Consequently, my proposal is that I want you as a Foreigner to stand in as the rightful owner of the money. I deposited it in the Finance Company in treasure trunk box though the finance company does not know the contents of the treasure trunk box as I tagged them to be photographic materials for export. In this circumstance, I want to present you as the rightful owner of the trunk box in the finance company so that you can be able to claim the treasure deposit. This is simple because my office made the deposit resently with open beneficiary and i am the boss in my office and my deputy and the banks chief security officer that helped us in making the deposit of the trunk box sealled and totally protected from opening. I would like you to provide immediately your full names and address as you have it in your international identity as well as your direct telephone and fax number so that my office can send them to the finance company to programme you in as the National Investment Bank Kumasi legally approved beneficiary and owner of the trunk box deposit. On your request the trunk box containing the USD$27millions will be moved out for us to your country and share in the ratio of 80% for my colleague, the chief security officer of my bank and my humble self and 20% for you. There is no risk at all as all the official formalities have been perfectly executed by my humble self from my powerful office and this will guarantee the successful execution of this transaction on your behalf, please reply immediately via my email address. Upon your positive response, we shall exchange our valid Identification documents and sign a binding agreement. Immediately the agreement is unanimously agreed upon and endorsed by both parties,I shall then open up communication between you and Finance company for the immediate transfer of the deposit to you.while I confide in you hoping you will not betray me at last. Thank you. Mr Peter Essien. firstname.lastname@example.org
