HON.EMMANUEL ARMAH-KPFI BUAH MINISTRY OF MINERALS AND ENERGY, ACCRA-GHAHA Happy New Year, FUND TRANSFER PROPOSAL I presume this mail will not be a surprise to you. I am the minister with the Ministry of mineral resources and energy in Ghana and also a member of contracts awarding committee of this ministry under Ghana government. I got your email information from one of my good friends who work with Ghana's Chamber of Commerce and industry on foreign business relations here in Accra-Ghana, though I did not disclose the deal to him. When he gave me your email address, I did not ask him his source because, I trust his judgment, having known him for a very long time. So my thinking is that if my friend can give me your email address contact when he knows that I am looking for a trustworthy foreigner, then you must be trustworthy and honest. Some years ago, Ghana government asked this committee to awards contracts to foreign firms, which I and three of my partners happened to be the head of this committee. With our good position, this contract was over invoiced to the tune of US$48,500,000:00 as a deal to be benefited by the four Members of this committee. Now the contracts value has been paid off to the actual contractors that executed these jobs, all we want now is a trusted foreign partner like you that we shall front with his banking account number to Claim the over inflated sum. The said funds will be shared within us when it is confirmed into your provided Account in your country by the paying Bank. NOTE: I know there may be scams and junk mails flying here and there on the internet but certainly, this is not one. Please do not fail to understand that in spite of all that, opportunities of this kind still abound. If you have ever wished or prayed for something good to come your way, now I urge you to take this message seriously and with an open mind. You could never know. This may be an answer to your prayers. So please give it a benefit of doubt and with good faith and trust join me and I am assuring you now that you will never be disappointed. here is my private email address you can reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org Truly yours Hon. Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah.
