I got your contact during my search for a reliable, honest and a
trustworthy person to entrust this huge transfer project with . My name is
MR EDWARD GILLY. I am the manager of the Standard Chartered Bank, First
Light Branch, Accra Ghana . I am a Ghanaian, married with two kids. I am
writing to solicit for your assistance in the transfer of funds valued at
$9,620,000.00 (nine million six hundred and twenty thousand United States
Dollars.) This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the
Manager made as profit during the last annual audition. I have already
submitted an approved end of the year report for the year to my head
office in Accra here and they will never know of this excess.

I have since then, placed this amount of value $9,620,000.00 million USD
in a suspense escrow account without a beneficiary. I cannot stand to
claim it that was why I contacted you to stand as the beneficiary. As an
officer of the bank, I cannot directly be connected to this money thus I
am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this Money into your
bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you as compensation
while 70% shall be for me. All I need from you is to stand as the original
depositor of the fund. Remember my bank do not know about this money.

yours Sincerely,
