Hello! Reply Asap,
I am Mr. Collins Kwame, a banker here in Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith hoping that I will rely on you. In 2007, Mr. Hudson who has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit of Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand USA Dollars (US$8,500,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer. Unfortunately, while on a business trip, he died in a deadly Tsunami earthquake in Sichuan China, in 2008 that killed many people.
The management of our bank have been finding a means to reach him so as ascertain if he will want to roll over the deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn, when I discovered that this will happen, I learnt of his death, so I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceed for charity. Some directors have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because, I know that if they become aware, they will corner the funds for themselves.
Therefore, I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the one to benefit from his fund at his death since you are from the same country with him, so that my bank head quarters will pay the funds to you. I have done enough inside bank arrangement and only have to put in your details into the information network in the bank computers and reflect you as his next of kin.
I immensely request for your optimum honesty and cooperation and Let me know your mind on this, and please do treat this information as Top secret. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response to my email - [email@example.com], we can as well discuss this on phone. Send me your phone number for easy communication anticipating your communication.
Mr. Collins Kwame.
