Subject: TREAT AS URGENT!
ATTN: Dear Friend,
How are you doing with your family?I presume that all is well with
you.I am KWESI ZARNEY, the manager of audit and accounting department
(Savana Bank of Ghana) Accra- Ghana.I got your contact from the
international business directory when i was searching a foreigner who will
assist me in a profitable business deal that will yeild us life success.
Before I wrote you,I prayed that you will be a honest and reliable person
whom i can work with to achieve this deal of our life.From my section in the
bank, I discovered an abandoned sum of FOURTEEN MILLION UNITED STATES
DOLLARS ($USD14M) that belongs to one of our customer who died along with
famillies,on 25TH JULY,2000 CONCORDE PLANE CRASH[Flight AF4590 ] with the
whole passengers on board.The name od the deceased man was (MR. ANDREAS
SCHRANNER from Munich,Germany.
You have to understand that I come across this huge amount of fund when i
was balancing an Internal Audit account of the departmental customers file
to submit to the bank management for the annual audit of the year.
Since the bank got information about the death of the deceased man, the bank
have been expecting his next of kin to apply and claim this fund because the
bank cannot release the fund to any a person unless a foreigner apply for
the transfer of the fund as the next of kin or relation to the deceased
relating to this inheritance, but unfortunately i learnt through
investigations that no one has come up for the claim.
This is the reason why I am making this business proposal to you so that you
will apply to the bank for them to wire this fund to your nominated account
as the next of kin or relation to the deceased customer.
For us to achieve this businesss immediately,the percentage ratio for
sharing the fund when the bank release the fund for you must be
arranged accordingly upon your confirmation of your intent.
Thereafter I will visit your country for sharing modalities of
percentages indicated above.So for the immediate transfer of this fund into
your bank account as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as the only
existening next of kin to the deceased customer by indicating in the
application the bank account information where you will request the bank to
wire the fund.So if you accept to help me in order to achieve this great
business,i will send to you through email or by fax an application form of
claim which you will fill with your account information and send to the bank
for the transaction to start immediately.
Please i would like you to know the following information.(1.) This business
is completely free from
risk while your personality and reputation will be protected.
(2.)You will not face any circumstances beyond our control because the
application will bear the brief information of the deceased which the bank
may like to know.
(3.) If you will follow my directives,this transaction
will be completed within a short time.
(4.)You should keep this business
CONFIDENTIAL or SECRET until the completion of this deal.
Please contact me through my email address so that we will proceed with this
My regards to your family.
DAWN KWESI ZARNEY
