FROM THE DESK OF AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING DEPT.
INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL BANK OF GHANA

DEAR SIR/MADAM.

REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL OF $35,000,000:00

I am Dr Gregory Kwesi, the Director in charge of Auditing and
Accounting
section of National Investment
Bank in West Africa and also Chairman of Investigating and Auditing
Department of this Bank. With due
respect and regard I have decided to contact you on a Business
Transaction
that we can actualize with
good faith.

During our Investigation and Auditing in this Bank, my department came
across a very huge sum of money
belonging to one Mr.Burke Sean, a foreigner, who died on November
August
6th 1997 in a plane crash Overseas,
you can search the web to see who is involve on it.

and the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any
claim of the fund in our custody either
from his family or relation because he did not indicate any next of kin
to
this account incase of death such as this.

Although personally, I keep this information secret within myself and
partners to enable the whole plans and idea be
profitable and successful during the time of execution. The said amount
is
U.S $35m (Thirty Five Million United States Dollars).
As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information
through
one of my good friends who work with Chamber of
Commerce on foreign business relations here in Accra-Ghana. It is him
who
recommended your person to me to be viable
and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any
problem.

I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free.
On
smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to
35% of the total sum as gratification, while 1% will be set aside to
take
care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer
and also telephone bills, while 64% will be for me and my partners.
Please,
you have been advised to keep "Top Secret" as we
are still in service and intend to retire from service after we
conclude
this deal with you. And I assure you that this transaction will
not last more than 10 working days and you confirm the money in your
account.

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you
confirm the money in your account. And ask us to come down to
your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to
percentages
previously indicated and further investment, either in
your country or any country you advice us to invest in. All other
necessary
vital information will be sent to you when I hear from you.

I will be waiting for your urgent response why I get all necessary
documents change in your name.

You can reach me via email: (dr_gregorykwesi@yahoo.com)

Regards,
Dr Gregory Kwesi.
