Dear Friend. I am Dr.Mark Jude. Of Bills and Exchange at the foreign remittance department of the Global Access Bank Limited Ghana. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to carry out this business opportunity in my department. I discovered an abandoned sum of $20.565m (twenty million, five hundred and sixty five thousand United States dollars only) in Account Number 11008734290 status of account fixed deposit account, That belongs to one of our foreign customer Engr. John Marlon C.E.O., MARLON CONSTRUCTION COMPANY LIMITED GHANA , Who died along with his entire family in November 2004 in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death we can not release the money unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased. As indicated in our banking guidelines ,unfortunately, neither the family members nor the relations have appeared to claim this money, at this discovery, I decided to do business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation of the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as an unclaimed debt. The banking law and guidelines of Global Access Bank Limited Ghana stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed for a period of seven (5) years it will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund, the need for a foreigner as next of kin in this senses is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and as a Ghananian cannot stand as his next of kin or heir. I agreed that 30% of the money will be for you as foreign partner; thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of the fund to you as indicated. You must apply to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased, Indicating your bank account number and indicating where the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of reply. I will send to you the text of application as soon as you receive this letter you should reach me through my above e-mail immediately and indicate your direct and confidential telephone number for effective communication. Hoping to hear from you through my e-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org Yours Faithfully, Dr. Mark Jude.
