Dear friend,
 
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 (owusu_ahmed@yahoo.cl)
 
Best regards,
Mr. Ahmed Owusu.
