Best regards!

My name is Mr. Michael Johnson. I am a banker here in Ghana. I got your
contact from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of International
Trade and Industry. I need your help to transfer the sum of US$10,700,000.00
into your account as my foreign partner.

The money is part of the profits made by our bank last year (i.e. 2014) in
the branch which i am the manager. I have already submitted annual report
for last year to my bank head quarters in Accra - Ghana, and they did not
notice the excess profits. I deposited the US$10,700,000.00 in an escrow
account without a beneficiary (Anonymous), to avoid any trace.

I cannot be directly connected to this fund because I'm still working with
the bank. So, I need your help to transfer this money to your country for
you and i to share. I wish to point out 10% of this money to be shared
among the charity organization, the remaining 90%, you have 40% of this
money as my foreign partner and 50% would be for me. There is no risk
involved because it will be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is
to stand as my foreign partner and owner of the money to enable you present
a foreign bank account where the money will be transferred to.

The intended transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement
that will protect you and me from any breach of the law. However, if this
business proposal offends your moral ethics, do accept my sincere apology.
If on the contrary you wish to achieve this goal with me, kindly get back
to me with your interest for further explanations and directions. Kindly
send your
mobile number.

Mr. Michael Johnson
