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 barrister Johnson Doke QC. I am a Barrister and a member of the Queen'sCouncil (QC) working with the reputable legal firm - Prudent Chambers in Accra Ghana and I am only contacting you to help claim deposited funds made by one of our clients who was involved in a fatal auto crash accident with his wife and was flown to London medical hospital and they later died.
Late engr. Mark clement Mohammad was a personal client of mine and I managed all their legal affairs. Today, I stand as the only custodian to the deposit he and
her wife made in Time Express Bank here in Accra Ghana and now I am faced with the task of providing a beneficiary for the claim of the fund.The amount deposited by my late clients is ($8,600,000 (Eight Million Six hundred thousand 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 clients because my late clients issued me aPower of Attorney duly endorsed in the Ghana High Courts of Justice when they madethe deposit and I was their legal advising counselor on the deposit and other issues.
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 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 whether you are truly related to my clients or not 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 clients and the fund can be released to you immediately.
I will draft an agreement between you and ifor the sharing of the fund as soon as you accept to assist in thistransaction. I agree to share (50-50) 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:email@example.com.May the almighty Allah bless you.
