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 

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.

Please i immensely request for your optimum honesty and cooperation to keep this matter as top 
secret between us, Kindly get back to me on this id( )for a brief 
discussion on how to proceed and Let me know your mind on this. Please do treat this information as 
Top secret as I can’t afford to lose my job with the Bank. Thanks for your understanding..
