I write to inform you of my desire to acquire estates or landed properties in your country on 
behalf of the Director of Contracts and Finance Allocation of the Ministry of Works and Housing in 
my country. Considering his very strategic and influential position, he would want the transaction 
to be strictly as confidential as possible. He further want his identity to remain undisclosed at 
least for now, until the completion of the transaction. Hence our desire to have an overseas agent. 

The transaction in brief is that the funds with which to carry out our proposed investments in your 
country is presently in Europe and we need your assistance to receive the funds into your country 
or any safe account outside your country that will be provided by you before we can put the funds 
into use. During the airlift of some presidential luggage to Europe we in the above department 
unanimously decided to include the fund as luggage tagged as "Photographic Equipment" for security 
reasons. I am contacting you to assist us on getting the luggage cleared from the agent and 
delivered to you. 

For this you shall be considered to have executed a contract for Federal Ministry of Works and 
Housing in Ghana. The contract sum of which shall run into Eight Million United States Dollars of 
which your share shall be 30% if you agree to be our overseas agent. Your area of specialization 
does not matter in this transaction, all that is required of you is a safe account and your 
willingness to assist us acquire estates in your country. All relevant documents to claim the 
luggage will be procure in your name to enable the agent deliver the luggage to your mailing 

You are requested to communicate your acceptance or otherwise, by furnishing me with your full 
names, mailing address and your personal telephone, for easier communication and for immediate 
forwarding to the agent in Europe for the delivery.

Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.

Best Regards 
Mr. Joseph Donkorh
