- I am the personal secretary to late Mr Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning Ghana ,who died in South Africa on 24th of September 2008.He had arrived in Johannesburg on September 12 in the company of his personal physician, Dr Nyantakyi, for a routine medical check-up and checked into the Garden Court Hotel. My late boss is the final signatory to any fund transfer approval or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on the local and international levels in line to foreign contracts settlement. Before his death I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have not been identified. Right now I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions received few days ago from the Parliamentary Committee on Contract Payments / Foreign Debts to submit the List of payment reports/un-paid contractors, expenditures and audited reports of revenues.So the ruling government wants to make sure that all foreign debts are paid. The sum of $7.5M(UNITED STATES DOLLARS) is out-standing which i want to present you are the beneficiary(SUB-CONTRACTOR),which will be transferred into your nominated account by telegraphic Transfer (T/T), confirmable in 7 working days after you have confirmed positive response (1) This matter must be kept secret , and all correspondence will be strictly by email: /telephone, for security purposes.(2)There should be no third parties as most problems associated with some fund release are caused by agents.(3)Note 30% of the total fund will be your offer for the assistance you will render in securing this fund into your custody for protection. If you agree with my conditions, l will advise you in details on what to do immediately and the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed in programming your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet the seven working days mandate.
