My name is Lawrence Adu-Mante Newton, I am the Regional Manager of commercial Bank of Ghana,[G.C.B] Accra branch Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith; I am a man of peace, and I have sincere respect for human feelings and opinions. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and I. As the Regional Manager Of Ghana Commercial Bank [G.C.B], it is my duty to send in financial report to my head office in the capital city, Accra at the end of each business year. On the course of last year, 2009 business report, I discovered that the bank's branch that I manage made Six Million five hundred and fifty thousand United States Dollars; I kept this away from the Head office and irrelevant personnel for the success of my motive. I have placed this fund in an Escrow account with no beneficiary. But as an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, so I have considered and decided to contact you for assistance in transferring this sum into your bank account as the beneficiary/next of kin of the account containing the funds. I am willing to offer you up to 40% of the entire sum on the fulfillment of your part in the process. There are practically no risks involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, it will simply be a bank to bank transfer. When it is possible to receive your feedback, I will communicate the next step to you. You have absolutely nothing to loose in this risk-free enterprise, so you must invest your trust just like I must do too to ensure better understand and on the other hand allow for a smooth & efficient running of the transaction. Finally, If all documents are procured and all legal procedure followed, Transfer of the funds can be possible under three working weeks. Sincerely, Mr. Lawrence Newton Adu-Mante (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org)
