I have posted the body of the mail below
I am Dr. Johnson Okechuku the Branch Manager of Agricultural Development Bank (A.D.B) Achimota Branch in the Greater Accra Region of Republic of Ghana .
I am writing you following a deal in my bank that will be of an immense benefit to both of us but if you are not willing to get involved in the Deal, do not REPLY THIS E-MAIL, as you will never hear from me again.
I have contacted you to solicit your assistance in the transfer of $12,000,000.00 (Twelve million United States dollars) which have been abandoned for 7 years now in our bank without claim. The said fund was deposited by a foreign customer of our bank who unfortunately lost his life and that of his entire family in the 25th December, 2003 Chartered UTA Guinea – Boeing 727-223 air crash in Cotonou-Republic of Benin.
Since this incident occurred, our bank has waited for any of his relatives to come up for the claim but until date no body has done that and this compelled me as the branch manager to place the funds in a escrow coded/suspense account without a beneficiary until I can get a reliable, honest and a trust worthy person who will stand as the beneficiary and receive the funds into his/her bank account.
My decision to execute this deal is because according to my bank’s policy which is in line with constitution of Republic of Ghana if an estate remains unclaimed after 7 years such estate will be confiscated by the Government and coupled with the fact that with all necessary legal documents the funds will be paid to any person who is presented as the beneficiary to our management team without any problem.
As a staff of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money as the beneficiary thus I contacted you to solicit your assistance to stand as the beneficiary and receive the funds into your bank account because of the geographical nature of where you live; particularly due to the sensitivity of the deal and the confidentiality herein.
Be informed that the funds will be released and transferred to your bank account as the beneficiary under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of the law; And for your full maximum cooperation and support that guaranteed the success of this deal, I am offering to give you 40% of the funds while 60% will be for me.
Importantly be informed that this is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer without any risk involved and you are free to come to Ghana for confirmation.
All we need to do to succeed in this deal is to obtain all necessary legal documents in your favor as the beneficiary from the respective ministries in Republic of Ghana which will back up this claim and ensure the release/transfer of the funds to any bank account you will provide.
If you are interested and willing to execute this deal with me, I will appreciate your timely response at [email protected]
