I'm sorry to contact you unannounced through this medium. I am Kocak Ahmet a citizen of Ghana, presently, Managing Director Barclay's Bank of Ghana. I have in my bank a big amount of money that belongs to a customer Daniel B.Putnam, who happen to have the same name as yours and who has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit for 36 calendar months, valued at $8 ,400,000.00 (Eight Million Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). Meanwhile, the fund is now without any claim because Daniel died in a deadly earthquake in China in 2008 . I want your cooperation so as to make the bank send you the fund as the beneficiary (next of kin) to the fund.
Since the last quarter of 2009 until today, the management of my bank have been looking for a means to reach his family so as to ascertain if he is interested in rolling over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn but all effort have proved abportive because Mr Daniel never married or had children prior to his death. This transaction will be of a great mutual assistance to us. I am therefore, seeking your cooperation to present you as the SOLE BENEFICIARY so that my bank will transfer the fund to you.
I am not a greedy person, I'm suggesting we share the fund equal, 50/50% as my share will assist me to start a charity organization to help the poor and also start a business of my own. Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. Kindly contact me via my Personal Email Address (email@example.com) or you send me your email address for the details. At the receipt of your reply, I will give you details of the transaction, a copy of the Deposit Certificate of the fund and the Incorporation Certificate of the company that generated the fund. Perhaps, if this proposal offends your moral and ethical values, do accept my apology.
Thank you in anticipation of your positive cooperation.
