Hello Friend
I got your contact during my search for a reliable,honest and a trust
worth person to entrust this huge transfer project with My name is
Mr.Martin Newman, Branch manager of afinancial institution here in Ghana.
I am a Ghanaian married with two kids.
I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of $7,550,000.00
Million United States dollars only. This fund is the excess of what my
branch in which am the manager made as profit during the 2005 financial

I have already submitted annual report for that year to my head office
here in Accra Ghana as I have watched with keen interest as they will
never know of this excess I have since, placed this amount of
$7,550,000.00 Million United States dollars only to an Escrow Coded
without a beneficiary (anonymous) to avoid trace

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money
due to civil service code which formits civil servants from owing or
operating foreign currency account coupled with the fact that the fund is
huge thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive
this money into your bank account on my behalf

I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do
need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's
going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as
the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be
legally processed to your name and be transferred to your account. If you
accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to my private
