AFRICA FINANCIAL WATCHDOG PAYMENT APPROVAL DEPARTMENT Regional Hq. Accra, Ghana FROM THE DESK OF FOREIGN OPERATIONS Attn: Beneficiary, We are contacting you over the transfer of your fund. Few days ago we got a report from a reputable bank here about a lady who claimed to be your business partner submitted to the foreign department of the bank, a death certificate and a sworn affidavit stating you are dead. The lady was directed to us for clearance After serious questioning, we suspect these documents could be falsified,hence we decide to contact you immediately. You are expected to get back to this office as quickly as possible and failure to get update from you in the next 5 working days, it means these documents are genuine and we will mandate bank to proceed with them. If you are alive and ignorant of the death certificate and sworn affidavit, you should contact us immediately. We asked the lady to come back in 3 days time. On your confirmation to us that you are still alive, the lady will be arrested and prosecuted for fraud. Yours Faithfully, Dr. John Attoh Hovis.
