Good Day Sir I am JACQUET AARON LEE, an American and also the MD/CEO of JACQUET AARON Consulting, which coincidentally happens to be the major consultancy firm to GHANA GOLD MINING CORPORATION an indigenous GOLD producing corporation in GHANA in the mid sixties. This message is coming to you because after returning to the office this for 2009, i found out that the only contractor who applied for the renovation of the 229 4-Bedroom Flats owned by the GHANA GOLD MINING CORPORATION. Luckily, his company was shortlisted and finally given the contract on the 19th of August 2008. The contract was to last 16 weeks and the cost was valued at $26,300,000.00 which was immediately approved by the GMD of GGMC and endorsed by the Board of Directors to enhance the quick execution of the contract. As expected, a mobilization fee of 40% of the total amount was paid to him, while he was advised to be rest assured of his balance upon completion of the contract and this he agreed to. Upon successful completion of the contract, the GHANA GOLD MINING CORPORATION kept their promise by notifying me of the readiness of the balance of $15, 780,00.00 into my account as the consultant in charge of the contract, but then i told them to hold the payment till the new year since banks weren't working fully. On the 3rd of January this year, the Director of Finance for GGMC, told me to inform the contractor that his payment was ready and that he would have to produce all his company's documents, account details after which his balance will be immediately approved for payment. I left the GGMC Headquarters immediately for the contractors office but met it under lock and key, so i called his cellphones but there was no response. I went straight to his residence and was told he traveled to OBUASI, WHERE Ghana has thier biggest gold market and a tourist centre for the holidays and that he was involved in a ghastly auto-accident. I couldn't control my emotions and that brought tears rolling down my cheeks. I tried to make contacts with his colleagues and at last i found out that his next of kin also was involved in the accident. However, i believed that whatever happens to us in this life has a purpose; either Good or Bad. I was in deep thought of what to do next; because i was to be paid 35% of the contract fee as the consultant and as it is now, the Director of Finance of GGMC sent 4 letters to me informing me that we only have till the 17th of MARCH to process the contract payment and till this very moment i haven't found anyone whom i can present as the Contract Company's Representative. Significantly, the newly established law guiding foreign transaction requires that any individual or company to be paid the a sum above $50,000.00 MUST pay 0.10% of the amount as tax or be ready to forfeit the whole money this is in accordance with the Ghana Government's rule. As it is now, i seek your permission to present you as the company's representative. That means the contract balance will be paid into your account and shared 50% for you and 50% for us. For us to present you as the company's representative we will need a Tax Clearance, Insurance, Company Registration in your name. If you feel you are up to the task to assist in this matter;- send me an e-mail to:- email@example.com include your full name, address, occupation, sex, age and your identity (International Passport, Driver's License or I.D). I assure you that you will never regret whatever you spent on this matter as everything concerning how this will be handled without any hitch has been perfected. In fact I want you to please give this a very quick consideration as it is planned to be concluded within 7 days of your acceptance to do this with me. Just give me your co-operation, you will laugh with me. I just give you only 7 days to conclude this deal. I will be grateful if you can give this the urgent attention that it requires, as you do this may the good God guide and protect you.I attach here a copy of my international passport to support this letter to you. Please I beg you to give me your support and co-operation for this to work out fast. Thanks. JACQUET AARON LEE.
