I sincerely do not wish to inconvenience you with my letter for I have an
urgent matter I wish to discuss with you which will benefit you and I.
For introduction, I
am Kobena Ebo, a Bank Officer here in Ghana. I am having an important
business discussion, I wish to share with you which I believe will interest
you, because it is in connection with your last name and you are going to
benefit from it. A customer and client of our bank had a fixed deposit
with our bank for 96 calendar months, valued at US$15,500,000.00 (Fifteen
million Five Hundred United State Dollars) the due date for this deposit
contract was last 22nd of January 2016. Sadly he was among the death
victims of plan crash, Last week my Bank Management requested that i should
give instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract.
My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because
he was my friend and I was his account officer prior to his death. If my
Bank Directors happens to know that he is dead and do not have any Heir,
they will take the funds for their personal use which I will not want such
to happen because the money has been in my care until date. I am now
seeking your co- operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the
account, since you have the same last name with him and my bank head
quarters will release the account to you. It is better that we claim the
money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already.
I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal,
50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own company
which has been my dream.
Due treat this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once
I receive your urgent response strictly through my personal email address:
I will reply to you with further details about this transaction. Thanking
you as I anticipate your earliest communication.
Mr. Kobena Ebo.
