Dear friend.

I am an account officer with a bank here in Ghana. I have gathered an
amount totaling five million six hundred thousand US dollars from
recent excess commissions and taxes on funds under my care. The fund
is presently mine and does not belong to the bank anymore and will be
released to whoever I nominate.

I therefore wish to ask that you help me receive the funds so we can
invest it after its release. I am willing to offer you 30% of the
funds and I assure you that this transaction is purely legal and
genuine and will only take about 10 days from when we commence to be
concluded. I'll furnish you with more details as soon as I hear from

Thank you,
