My Dear Friend,
I know we have not met in person but I have a very profiting proposal which I am sure you can handle. My name is Barr.Daniel Kobuna Esq. I am a Barrister at Law and a member of the Queen's Council (QC) working with the reputable legal firm - Ego Chambers as Principal Partner in Accra Ghana and I am only contacting you to help claim deposited funds made by one of our client who was involved in a fatal auto crash with his wife and was flown to London medical hospital and they later died.
Late Engr. Mathieu Wagen who was then the Head of Engineering Unit of Shell Oil Company here in Accra,was a personal client of mine and I managed all his legal affairs. Today, I stand as the only custodian to the deposit he and the wife made in a commercial bank here in Accra Ghana and now I am faced with the task of providing a beneficiary for the claim of the balance in my client's account which stand at US$16,000,000(Sixteen Million United States Dollars) Only and the bank is ready to release the money to whoever I present as the beneficiary and the next-of-kin to my late client because my late client issued me a Power of Attorney duly endorsed in the Ghana High Courts of Justice when he was alive and I was their legal representative for over 10 years before their demise.
Now the Bank where my client deposited the fund demands that I quickly provide a claimant for the fund because the deposit duration has expired and needs a renewal or withdrawal from their bank otherwise it will be handed over to the government. Because I have not been able to provide anyone due to my fears of releasing the money to someone who might run away with it, I am being very careful about this. I have however decided to try and do this deal with you instead of allowing the fund to be confiscated by government and I pray you will not run away with the money when they release it to you. I will arrange to formalize your papers so that you can be approved as next-of-kin to my late client and the fund can be released to you immediately.I will appreciate it more if you can make out your time to come for a meeting after which we will formalize and conclude the transaction in the commercial bank in your present which will not take more 5 working days if you can come to
Accra-Ghana here.
I will draft an agreement between you and me for the sharing of the fund as soon as you accept to assist in this transaction. I agree to share 60-40 with you but we must bear serious responsibilities on both sides to ensure the release of the fund into your account.
Please if you are interested in this transaction, kindly furnish me with your private telephone and fax number, your full name and address to enable us move forward. You may get back to me via my direct email address: 
May the almighty God bless you.

Barr.Daniel Kobuna Esq.
