The Manager International
Commercial Bank Ghana
First Light Branch
My name is Mr. Frank Mensah. I am the manager of the international commercial bank Ghana, first light branch. I am a Ghanaian
married with two kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of four million five hundred
thousand dolars usD$4.500.000.00 This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager
made as profit during the last year.
I have already submitted an approved end of the year report for the
year 2009 to my head office here in Accra and they will never know of this excess.
I have since then, placed this amount of (usD$4.500.000.00 } on a suspense account without a
beneficiary. As an officer of the bank,
I cannot be directly 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 40% of
this fund to you while 60% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk
involved in this. Its going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the
original depositor of this fund. I will appreciate your timely response.
Mr. Frank Mensah
