Dear Sir I am the Executive Director with the Burkina Faso Ports
Authority. I will retire from service shortly because I am on a
political appointment. Based on this I would like to do this business
with you so that at my retirement I would have a solid financial
investment to fall upon while on my retirement age. THE DEAL: By my
position I have been able to secure US$64.650 Million Dollars from an
over invoiced contract awarded and executed a few years ago by the
Authority under my direct supervision. With my position in the office,
and the fact that the Economic and Financial Commission (EFC) watching
the activities of Senior Government Officers still serving in
Government, I cannot single handedly secure this fund within my reach.
For me to be on a safer side, I want you to search for a lucrative
business to investment the money for our mutual benefit. Details will be
made known to you on response to my mail. Expecting your friendly
reply. Ken Ofori-Atta Director of Operations Burkina Faso Ports
