Dear Friend, I write to seek your services in a private and confidential matter regarding some funds unaccounted for in our bank here in Ghana during the last 2008 business year. As a Regional Manager in this Bank, I deposited this fund in an ESCROW CALL ACCOUNT at our headquarters pending when I shall get a reliable person. This requires a private arrangement. Could you perhaps be able to receive these funds under legal claims then I will fill you in. I will appreciate for fewer questions asked and your participation will be 40% of the total money. There are practically no risks involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, it will be simply a bank-to-bank transfer. I have all the details and will fill you in if you are really willing. Your major role would be to provide an existing account or open a new bank account where the funds will be transferred and stand as the original depositor of this fund in our bank, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end for this important business trusting in you and believing that you will never let me down either now or in future. At this juncture, I wish to tell you what prompted me to package this deal. I have a 9yrs old daughter who has leukemia, a disease of the blood, and she needs a bone marrow transplant or she will die. I want this transplanting to be done in any good childrens 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 all correspondences will be via email for now. The funds in question are quite large,Three million eight hundred and fifty thousand United States Dollars($3,850,000.00).I will expect a straight answer from you. If yes, please get back to me so that we can work out the modalities without further delay. With Regards, Mr. John Martey.
