Greeting from Barrister Short Emile Esq. Attention:DEAR friend My name is Barrister Short Emile, the legal representative of an American citizen here in Ghana. I am writing in respect of the Fund US$9.5M he deposited with STANBIC BANK GHANA before his sudden death on 31july 2000 in a plane crash.You can confirm the genuiness of the deceased death by clicking on this web site http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/859479.stm Since the demise of this my Client, I personally has watched with keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no one has come to claim his funds of Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars, which has been with STANBIC BANK GHANA branch for a very long time. Meanwhile I have made several attempts to claim this fund as his personal attorney on my own but the Bank refuse to release the fund to me stating that I should present a second party before the fund can be release to me for security reason. On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the Next of Kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin. And the banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than Eight years, because money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed after this period. In view of this I will make sure that I go extra mind to got a responsible person who will not betrayed me or trying to blackmail me, As soon as you receive this letter, kindly email me on my private email box (email@example.com) signifying your decision. After much, if you are willing to execute this project with me, you will deduct 30% of the total money as your commission. Thanks for your Co-operation Yours Sincerely, Barr. Short Emile Esq.
