Dear Friend,

Greetings. I wish this very information will not come to you as a Surprise and please pardon me for using this medium to contact you, it is because of the urgent attention required by this request. I am Barrister. Solomon Esien the personal attorney to MR.CARIPIDES WILLIAM , Herein after referred to as my client and who owns an Import and Export Company; CARIPIDES AUTO LTD. This my client, has a Company account With International Commercial Bank , here in Ghana, totaling US$6.52million (Six Million Five Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars).Unfortunately, this my client was among the victims of SWISSAIR FLIGHT NO.111 that crashed on the 01-09-1998 in CANADA. Confirmable from the website;

But, since that year after his death the bank has not had anyone that Comes for the claim of this money as the second next of kin to this my client, since his wife whom he made the next of kin was also involved in the crash and died also together with their only son.Since then l have made several enquiries to the embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unseccssful.
Now, the bank has officially written to me as his personal attorney, informing me that his account with them will run to an end in the next 30 days, and will be declared permanently dormant and transferred to the Federal Reserve account if not claimed before the 30 days notice. As his personal attorney and having monitored this deposit over the years, before and after his death, and hence nobody has showed up as the second next of kin for the past years now, and after these several unsuccessful attempts, l have reasoned very professionally and l feel it will be legally proper to present you as his partner and friend and his second next of kin so as to claim out this money, before it is transferred to the Federal Reserve account where other people may as well claim it directly without going to this length. I have taken every necessary precautionary measures concerning this issue and arrangement has been concluded by me in achieving this goal since l have all his personal and company’s information. This does not have any risk attached to it, provided you will give me your assistance and support and also follow my directives during the process.

I therefore request you to confirm your interest by a return message
and I will furnish you with the full details and what to do concerning this claim. What you stand to gain would be discussed and it is negotiable before the claim commences.

Thank you in anticipation of your urgent response.

Kind regards,
Barrister Solomon Esien.
