My name is Mr. Edward Lamptey 57 years of age I am compelled to contact you as result of a lifetime business relationship I wished to establish with you honorable self. I am a God fearing gentleman of the confidence that God will certainly create an enabling environment in our midst through which his name will be glorified.
I am the Eastern regional Auditor General of the Ghana commercial Bank Ltd Of Ghana . I am a Christian. I write you this letter in good faith believing both of us will work with one accord for the realization of this project.. I am in control of the sum of Twelve million, Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars ($12,850,000.00) that was an excess of profit made by our Eastern region branch office in the last quarters of the year 2007.
Due to the present political position of this country, I have carefully placed the afore said fund in an Escrow Call Deposit Account and did not declare this to my head office, Can I really trust you to hold this money for me until I arrive your country and pick it up myself? This is where the problem lies. You will be entitled to 10% of the total money as your commission if you will be human enough to work with me.. If you accept my offer you can contact me immediately via my personal l email address. firstname.lastname@example.org
All I need is your formidable current account where the money will be moved accordingly. I will discretely give you all the information concerning the account and the deposit so that you can apply to my headquarters directly for the re-location of the money. There is practically no risk involved it will be a bank-to-bank transfer. I hope you understand my situation.
Thank you and God bless. Very truly yours, Mr. Edward Lamptey
