Hello,


I offer my friendship and believe you will accept me with good heart, I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist each other. I am Mr. Richard Asari, a Bank Officer here in Ghana. I believe it is the wish of God for me to come across you now. I am having an important business discussion I wish to share with you which I believe will interest you, because it is in connection with your last name and you are going to benefit from it.A citizen of your country. Peter had a fixed deposit with my bank in 2005 for 108 calendar months, valued at US$15,500,000.00 (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) the due date for this deposit was last 22nd of January 2014.

My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because he was my friend and I was his account officer. Peter did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that Peter should give instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract.


I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know that Peter is dead and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your last name I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you have the same last name with him and my bank head quarters will release the account to you. There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.


It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, 50/50% to both parties, my share will assist me to start my own company which has been my dream. Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response strictly through this my personal email address, [email protected]


Have a nice day and God bless. Anticipating your communication.


Best Regards
Mr. Richard Asari

Hey, sorry for coming here after years of the post being made but I recently found out my Dad fell for this scam last year without asking me and gave out personal information. So my question is, how f*cked up are we?

First gather as much documentation as you can and report it to the proper authorities. I would go local and federal. This has two reasons you should report crime and two it documents the crime. Incase anything happens in the future. Also, if it is email based it might be better to change the account. Scammers will flood his account. Change any others accounts involved in the scam.
