Meridian House, Ring Road Central, Private mail Bag 16,Obuasi -Ghana. Sir, I plead your forgiveness over my unconventional approach to you regarding this matter. It is with trust and confidence I write to make this urgent business proposal to you. Please treat with utmost attention. I am the managing director of Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Ltd. I would like to use this means to ask for your assistance in moving the sum of US$15,500.00 (Fifteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) to your country. The fund was realized from my Bank excess profit after trading with the capital sum and it has been since deposited in an Escrow account. However I cannot directly involve myself with this fund due to my position as a civil servant / Manager. And this is where I need your assistance. I want to present you as the original depositor/ Beneficiary of this fund to enable me wire it to any designated account of yours in your county or any other country of your choice. The transfer would be made via swift and it will be Bank- to Bank transfer All I need from you is to provide a good bank account where this fund could be wired into and also stand as the beneficiary so that within six working days the fund will be transferred to the account. It could be an existing account or a fresh account. It may interest you to know that all arrangement has been made towards the success and smooth transfer of this fund. Therefore I urge you to treat this proposal with utmost secrecy and confidentiality to avoid jeopardizing my position and the entire transaction. If this proposal is acceptable to you, please indicate urgently and include your telephone contact so that I can call you for more details. I wait in anticipation of your cooperation.
