Subject: Compliment of the season...

With due respect,

By introduction, My Name is Mr. Daouadi Jamel, a banker by profession from France, currently holding the post of Auditing and Accounting Manager for Ecobank Ghana Ltd. A deceased client of mine, that shares the same sign name as yours died as a result of a heart-related condition in March 12th 2005. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the tsunami disaster on the 26th December 2004 in Sumatra Indonesia . 

My late client who shared the same sign name with you deposited $8.3 million. Eight million three hundred thousand dollars lodged in the bank here in Ghana and now the fund details are overdue. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin (of which there’s none), or the account will be confiscated.

My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary to my late client, since you have the same sign name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage. All legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.
I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise your utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily confidential, whatever your decision, while I await your prompt response.

Please send your full names, address and direct phone number so we can discuss more on phone regarding the transaction.

Sincerely and respectfully yours,
Mr. Daouadi Jamel
