Dear Sir, I am Kwame Mensah, Legal Department, Ministry of Finance Ghana. I want to tell you the truth why you have not been able to claim your funds successfully despite all your efforts. Based on the information and the outcome of series of reports from different panels which I participated in which confirmed the information that I want to give to you to help you claim your funds successfully this time without failure, the main reason of your failure to successfully claim the funds is because you have no authentic information of the source and origin of funds. It is on records that attempts has been made to transfer this funds out through many other African Countries as arranged by your partners and collaborators without success. I want to help you to make your claim legitimate by arranging for you to come personally and register an NGO or Foster Home Organization in your name or combination of your name and an Indigene through which this funds will be traced to as the inheritor of the funds. All arrangements will be legally documented from the Government offices that will issue the documents to legalize everything with my assistance. To actualize this, you will be required to be here in Ghana for a maximum of 3 working days to handle most of the things by your self with people that will assist you. It is imporatnt I mention to you here that you will have the priviledge of going to the bank to see your money and meet with the Bank officials that will pay the money to you after obtaining the documentation and meeting with them. This money will only be paid to you from a bank in Ghana because the funds that you are claiming originated from Ghana. The invitation that you will need for your entry visa will be given to you and a copy sent to the embassy that will issue your visa. I will give you more details as soon as you confirm your readiness to visit Ghana to perfect your funds claim in Ghana directly from the Bank. I am waiting to read your confirmation urgently through my private emal email@example.com Kwame Mensah Legal Department, Ministry of Finance Ghana.
