Dear Friend,

I hope this may not constitute sort of embarrassment to you, My name is Mr.Mark Osei,I am the 
regional bank manager of the Barclays Bank Ghana Ltd.I came to know you in my Private Search for a 
reliable and reputable person to handle this Confidential Transaction. I am 45 years of age and 
married with 3 lovely kids. It may interest you to hear that I am a man of PEACE and INTERGRITY; I 
only hope we can assist each other.

I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us, as the regional Auditor 
General of the Barclays Bank Ghana Ltd.; it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head 
office in the capital city Accra at the end of each year.

On the course of last year 2007 end of year report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the 
manager made an excess profit of five million Seven Hundred and Fifty united states dollars 
(US$5,750,000.00) which my head office are not aware of and will never be aware of. I have since 
placed this fund on what we call ESCROW ACCOUNT without any beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank I can not be directly connected to this money, this is why I.m contacting 
you for us to work so that you can assist and receive this money into your bank account for us to 
SHARE. I will offer you 20% of the total amount for your assistance.

Note that there are practically no risks involved in this transaction , it will be bank to bank 
transfer, all I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of this fund who made the 
deposit with Takoradi branch so that my Head office can order the transfer to your designated bank 

Do not make undue the advantage of the trust I have bestowed on you, and I assure you we can 
achieve it successfully.

Best regards
Mr.Mark Osei
