NOTE: Before you proceed reading this mail,this is true and not one of those mails you see on the internet,i tell you the gospel truth i only need you to help me so that we can smile in future.I am a political activist. I am also a member of my party's executive committee on contracts bases.I got your full information from Chamber of Commerce and industry on foreign business relations here in Accra-Ghana.And i believed you must be trustworthy and honest main looking at your profile.
My aim of contacting you is to crave your indulgence to assist us in securing some funds abroad for safe keeping which incidentally was kept to help us finance our elections which hold on 7th December 2008. Fortunately with my immediate assistance,and contact, we were able to deposit the money in a Bank security vault pending when the fund would be needed.
We wish to relocate this fund in a foreigner's name to avoid any trace. All I need from you is an assurance that you can handle the amount involved (US$19,500,000) comfortably and that I can also trust you with this arrangement. Be rest assured that there is no risk involved since I have taken care of everything after the election. I want you to immediately inform me of your willingness in assisting and co-operating with us, so that I can send you full details of this transaction and we will make arrangement and discuss at length on how to transfer this funds.
Please if you are not interested in this business, let me know in time, so that I can contact someone else.
