A Scam Email with the Subject "FROM: MANAGER AHMED OWUSU" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 24 Oct 2009 18:59:42 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Ahmed Owusu"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
My name is Mr. Ahmed Owusu a branch bank manager here in Ghana. After several official enquiries from the foreign trade office of our Chambers of Commerce and Industry, I decided to contact you directly for assistance.
I am interested to transfer in your country through your assistance. I am in Ghana presently and I have the sum of Fifteen Million Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars which I would like to transfer into your account and invest in your country if possible.
I made this money (US$15,850,000.00) out of my branch office excess profit for the 2007 fiscal year. I choose you because I cannot be directly involved for I am still working with the bank, I hope you can understand my situation and assist me to receive and invest this money properly as this is my only hope. You will get 30% of the total fund as commission for your sympathetic co-operation while 70% will be for me.
Please kindly get back to me ASAP. Reply back with (email@example.com)
Mr. Ahmed Owusu.
