Ghana- West African
I know this letter might come to you as a surprise as we have not known
or meet each other before. My name is Dr.James Walter a pathologist and
biochemist doctor of Accra general teaching hospital named (Korle bu
teaching hospital great Accra region.) I got your contact address and
information on my research for a reliable person who will not sit on
top of the money after the end of this transaction.
I have a cancer patient in our custody with above mentioned hospital
here in Accra-Ghana. She was married to late Mr. Phillip Johnson who
was the owner and managing director of Ukatex Ent.Ltd dealers in cocoa
and Timber market here in Ghana. This hospital conducted some test
about my patients disease and it have been clearly made known to her
and this hospital that she is not going to last after two months from
now. For that few months ago my patient invited me over to have a talk
with her as I have been her custodian since her stay with this hospital
all this while till now.
She disclosed to me that before the death of her husband that her
husband deposited sum huge amount of cash $8.6mUSD with one of the well
known bank here in Accra-Ghana for the purchase of Timber machines
before he was killed by his business partner last year. I wrote a
letter to the bank as Mrs. Linda Wallfan(My patient) directed me to on
her behalf three weeks ago for the claim. Which the bank replied to us
to provide the next of kin to this fund with them. It was stated in the
documents that the next of kin to this money is a foreign business
partner to late Mr. Johnson.
Why I am contacting you for your assistance is to stand as the next of
kin to this fund and claim it asking the bank to transfer the fund to
your account in your country or any country of your choice where the
money will be safe for us and for investment. You don't have to worry
for anything as to any question that might come up from the bank for I
have all the details they might need from you to proof as the next of
kin to this fund. I also save a little money in-case if anything come
up with such happened during the process.
I am offering you 40% of the total fund for your assistance 10% for any
expenses that might come up during the transfer like telephone calls,
fax and so on.50% will be for me and my family. I will like to hear
from you with your great interest as soon as you get this message.
Please you can also give me your telephone number for more oral
details. I will be happy if you will reply to my letter than keeping me
waiting. Thank you and God bless you as I hear from you soonest.
