OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR, EXTERNAL FINANCIAL RELATIONS DEPT. (EFR) BANK OF GHANA (BOG) ACCRA-GHANA. Date: 7th September, 2010. Email: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Our Ref: BOG/OHG/OXD1/2010 Your Ref: PAYMENT FILE: BOG/000/08. PAYMENT NOTIFICATION OF YOUR FUNDS I am Mr. Yao Abalo, Director of the External Financial Relations department Bank of Ghana (BOG). You are being contacted by me today because your FUNDS were re-deposited into the "SUSPENSE ACCOUNT" of the BANK OF GHANA (BOG) last month since you did not forward your claim to us as the rightful beneficiary. As the apex bank of all banks in Ghana , we are baffled over this new development of your sending people to come and receive your funds on your behalf without prior information to us. Really these men were unexpected by me because their visit was impromptu. I had to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they were here to Collect the contractual/inheritance bill Sum of $ 7.5 Million USD which rightfully belongs to you, on your behalf. At this development I asked them who authorized them to come down to Ghana for the collection of this Payment and they told me that you asked them to come and collect the funds This was the biggest shock that this Bank have ever received so far because your contractual Funds is still in the" Suspense Account" of BOG, yet you sent these men to come and collect the Funds on your behalf without notifying us. We in this Bank do not understand why you sent these men to come and receive your Funds. If actually you want them to help you receive your Inheritance Bill Sum, at least you should have informed me as director of the EFR department of this bank. They actually tendered some vital documents which proved that you sent them for the collection of this fund. Here are the Document which they tendered to this Bank on your behalf: 1. LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION. 2. HIGH COURT INJUNCTION. 3. ORDER TO RELEASE. Actually, these Documents which they tendered to this Noble Bank is a clear proof that you sent them. In any case I told them to come back so as to get your side of the matter As director of the External Financial Relations department (EFR) of the Bank of Ghana , I was supposed to Release this Fund to them but I refused to do so because I wanted to hear from you first. Due to the urgency involved and the office of my job and coupled with litigations that may arise over wrongful transfer of funds, I will not want to make any mistake in releasing this fund to anyone except you whom is the recognized and bonafide beneficiary of the Funds. Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this payment to these people that came on your behalf. In receipt of this confidential Letter, you are required to get back to me as soon as possible. Yours Faithfully, MR. YAO ABALO, DIRECTOR, EXTERNAL FINANCIAL RELATIONS DEPT. BANK OF GHANA (BOG)
