Dear  Sir, 

I am Mr Peter Essien Accounts supervisor with NationalInvestment Bank,Kumasi - Ghana. I have urgent 

and very confidential business proposition for you. On June 6,1999, a Foreign Diamond 

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. 

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 

made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Simon Kelly did not declare any kin or relations 

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 

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 

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 

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 

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 

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 

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 

unanimously agreed upon and endorsed by both parties,I shall then open up communication between you 

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.
