I hope that most people are aware that this sort of nonsense is always a scam.  “Reputable” bankers don’t contact random people via email and offer to send them millions of dollars.  It doesn’t happen.

I’ll guarantee that if you answered “MrAgyare” would start asking you to send him money.

Dear Friend,

I have been in search of someone with this last name and when I saw your name I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist each other.Meanwhile I am Mr. David Agyare, a reputable banker here and my purpose of contacting you is that On the 15th of March 2007 one Mr. Victor a citizen of your country and a crude oil dealer made a fixed deposit with my bank valued at $17,500,000.00 (Seventeen Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars) and the due date for this deposit contract is exactly this time of the year.

Sadly Mr. Victor was among the death victims in the 2008 deadly earthquake in Sichuan china and left nobody for the claim of his deposited fund. He was in china on a business trip and that was how he met his end.Mr Victor did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened because he was not married and no children and if this fund should stays here in our bank after so many years till this time of the year! It will move into the bank treasury account as un-claimed fund and the Top ones here in our bank will share it among themselves.

I don’t want such thing to happen that is the reason why I contacted you and requesting your assistance to receive this fund into your account as the beneficiary hence you bear the same surname with the deceased,Please kindly consider this proposal and send me your reply of interest to my private email address: ( so that I will give you more details on how to proceed,

I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, which is 50/50 to both parties,I wait for your response direct to my private email ( and please delete if you are not interested.For your information it is very difficult for me to talk about this subject on Skype because I am always busy in the office, so I prefer that we keep communicating through e-mail for safety purpose.

I wait for your positive response.

Mr. David Agyare
