Good day, My Good Friend, Let me start by introducing myself properly to you. My name is Mr Otabil Mensah. I am a newly promoted Bank Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian, I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars into your account. It is my duty to send in a Financial Report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each year. In the course of the last year 2014 end of the year report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the Manager made excess profit of Seven Million five Hundred Thousand Dollars [US$7,500,000.00], this said funds discovered after i have already submitted an annual report for that last year 2014.. Since that last year i have watched with keen interest and notice that my bank head office are not aware of the fund and they will never know of this excess, so i have since placed this amount of $7,500,000.00 US Dollars on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace. As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to the fund which make me to request for your assistance to receive the fund into your bank account as a foreign partner , then we invest the funds in your country, I want to assure you that their is 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 depositor of the funds so that my bank head office can transfer the funds to your account, I agree that we share the funds 40% for you and 60% for me, also my 60% share will be invested in your country under your care.
