My name is Lamptey Danquah. I am a branch manager of the International Commercial Bank Ghana Limited, North Kaneshie branch. I write to seek your participation in a private and confidential transaction involving USD 3.5million dollars. This funds was stashed out of the excess profit made last year by my branch office of the International Commercial Bank Ghana Limited, which I head as the manager. I have already submitted an approved end-of-the-year report for the year 2008 to my head office here in Accra-Ghana and they will never know about this excess. I have also since then, placed this $3.5million dollars on a Non-Investment Account without any beneficiary details.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. Your major role is to stand as the original beneficiary of this fund and the holder of the Escrow Account which this funds is lodged before my head office and then apply for the transfer of the fund to your designated bank account in your country. Before anything, l shall program your information into our bank as the beneficiary/owner of this Escrow account and l will guide you on how to apply to my head office for the Account Closure/bank-to-bank remittance of this funds to your designated bank account in your country.
There are practically no risks involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law, it will be simply a bank-to-bank transfer. Finally, I wish to tell you what prompted me to package this transaction. I have a 9years old daughter who has leukemia, a disease of the blood, and she needs a urgent bone marrow transplant or she will die within 21days. Also l want this transplanting to be done in any good children's hospital in your Country, if there is one.
Once this fund is transferred into your account, I shall resign from my job and bring my family to start a new life in your country. If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 30% of the funds as compensation, while 70% shall be for me.
l will appreciate if you respond immediately for further details.
