Good day, My Good Friend. Before I tell you about myself i want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. Let me start by introducing myself properly to you. My name is Mr Otabil Mensah, The Bank Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids, I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars into your account. Listing, 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 because it is my duty as the branch Manager to send in a Financial Report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each year. Even 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. Please i immensely request for your optimum honesty and cooperation to keep this matter as top secret between us, i believe that this is God opportunity which i have been praying for. Kindly get back to me on this id ( email@example.com ) for a brief discussion on how toproceed. Please do treat this information as Top secret as I canât afford to lose my job with the Bank Thanks for your understanding.
