Before the time of his death, he had a deposit of $14.5Million which he declared as family treasure in the Finance House Accra office where I was working then, which is only I and his lawyer knows the true content, Unfortunately, till this moment no person has come as his relation for his chattels with us. I humbly request your attention to this matter so that I can present you as his next of kin and beneficiary to his chattels. It is not a very difficult thing to do and it will not take time.
All I will need is to put your name and particulars as his next of kin to in our computer database and we file in an application for the release of the fund. It does not necessarily mean that you must be in Ghana to conclude the deal; we may request that the money be sent to Europe for your collection.

When I hear from you, we shall discuss the terms of sharing of the money after the claim. Contact me now so that I can delegate the Attorney who is also going to be part of the deal.
