Attn: Project Trustee,
My name is Mr.Douglas Lamptey, I am the Branch auditor general of the International Commercial Bank Ltd, First Light Kaneshie Branch. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us. I got your information during my search through the Internet for a reliable and honest person.
As the branch auditor general of the Bank, it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office,at the end of each year.While i was conducting a standard procedural auditing report involving financial account end of year report in our database,I discovered an amount of Three million nine hundred and fifty thousand dollars [$3,950.000.00] which was not recorded with my head office and that was an excess profit made by our branch office in the last quarters of the year 2007.
I have since place this fund on what we call SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without any beneficiary. As an officer of the bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, so this informed my contacting you for us to work so that you can assist and receive this money into your bank account for us to SHARE.
You will have 35% of the total fund as your reward at the end of the transaction. All i want you to do is to stand claim as the original depositor of this fund. I am 46 years of age and married with 3 lovely children. It may interest you to hear that I am a man of PEACE and don't want problem, I only hope we can assist each other. If you don't want this business offer kindly forget it as I will not contact you again.
Note: there are practically no risk involved, 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 our branch so that my Head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account. If you accept this offer to work with me, I will appreciate it very much. As soon as I receive your response I will detail you on how we can achieve it successfully.
Mr. Douglas Lamptey.
