First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue
of it's nature as being utterly Confidential and top secret. Though I know
that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and
worried, but I am assuring you that this is real and genuine. My name is Mr.
Richmond Ama. I am the manager of the international commercial bank Ghana ,
first light branch. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids.
I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of
us$1,500.000.00.This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the
manager made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an
approved end of the year report for the year 2007 to my head office here in
Accra and they will never know of this excess. I have since then, placed
this amount of us$1,500.000.00 on a suspense account without a beneficiary.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus
I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your
bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be
for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in
this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to
stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, I
will appreciate your timely response.
