From: Mr.Ben Owusu. International Commercial Bank Team Branch, Accra Ghana. Dear friend, My name is Mr.Ben Owusu,and I am the regional manager of International Commercial Bank of Team Branch in Accra Ghana. I got your information during a Search for trustworthy people through my private Internet. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us, as the regional manager of the International Commercial Bank it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each year. On the course of the last year 2006 end of year report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made Two Million Three Hundred Thousand Dollars [US$2,300.000.00] which my head office are not aware of and will never be aware of it. I have since place this fund on what we call SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without any beneficiary. The bank will approve this money to any foreigner because the former operator of the a/c is a foreigner this is why I contact you for both of us can assist each other. I want to assure you that the transaction is 100% free risk; if due process is followed accordingly. Finally, I will give you 25% for your corporation.. I look forward to a favorable response from you. Best Rgards, Mr.Ben Owusu.
