(RE: TRANSFER OF ($ 72,000.000.00 USD}

We want to transfer to overseas ($ 72,000.000.00 USD) from a bank here in
Ghana, I want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who
will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to
set up
a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can
serve to
receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end
of this
important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will
never let
me down either now or in future.

I am Mr. James Amene, Director of International Relation with a bank here in
Ghana,during the course of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in an
account opened in the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has operated on this
account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered
that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is
and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for

the owner of this account is Mr.Chris Marco , a foreigner, and a sailor,
and he
died since 1993. and no other person knows about this account or any thing
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation
to me as well that Chris Marco was the manager of Chris Coy.(Gh). LTD.

for the payment of the remaining amount to your account,The amount

Dollar from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest,
but I don’t know any foreigner in my life, I am only contacting you as a
foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here,
valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any
