Dear Friend,
With due respect to your person and much sincerity of purpose I make this contact with you as I 
believe that you can be trusted to assistance to me. my name is Mr. Collins Mahama, Presently I 
work in a Bank as branch manager. I have been searching for your contact since you left our country 
some years back .I do not know whether this is your correct email address or not because I only 
used your name initials to search for your contact in the internet on my search for you. Please if 
in case you are not the right person I am supposed to contact , please see this as a confidential 
message and do not reveal it to another person, just do let me know whether you can be of 
assistance regarding my proposal below because it is a top secret.
I am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new life but I am skeptical to reveal this 
particular secret to a unknown person. You must assure me that everything will be handled 
confidentially because we are not going to suffer again in life. In Ghana, we have two major 
political domain such like NPP NDC, these are two leading political parties here in Ghana as a 
country. It has been 10 years now that most of the NPP government used our bank to move huge money 
overseas through my help and their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out 
of the shores of Ghana was made out our two major resources such as Gold and Crude Oil. Their 
Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used 
my opportunity to restore part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how 
much was transferred because all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed immediately 
after transfer.
I, as the bank Manager, when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy acts, 
I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one care to ask me because 
the money was too much for them to control. They moved over ($750 Million Dollars per annual) up to 
14 times through me. As I am sending this message to you, I was able to stop on my position more 
than Seventeen Million ($17 Million Dollars only) into an escrow account belonging to no one in the 
bank with no name s the beneficiary of this account. But now, the bank is anxious to know who is 
the beneficiary to this funds. It is more than  Eight years now and most of the politicians are no 
longer using our bank to transfer funds. The $17 Million Dollars has been lying waste but I don't 
want to retire from the bank at the end of this year without transferring the funds to a foreign 
account to enable me share the proceeds. The money will be shared 50% for me and 40% for you while 
10% t
 akes care of any miscellaneous ex
I only want you to assist me with trust, sincerity and honesty because we have only one month and 
half left to successfully conclude this transaction. You are not to face any difficulties or legal 
implications as I am going to participate in every thing concerning the transfer of the money into 
your receiving bank account. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately 
to enable me give you more detailed information on what to do. Note, For me, I have not stolen the 
money from anyone because the other people that took the whole money did not face any problems. 
This is my chance also to grab my opportunity, but you must keep the details of the funds secret to 
avoid leakages as no one in the bank knows about the funds. Furnish me with the following:
Your current contact address, full names and Telephone Numbers. I shall intimate you on what to do 
when I get your confirmation and acceptance. If you are capable of being my trusted associate, do 
declare your consent to me to my private email (
Waiting for your urgent response.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr. Collins Mahama
