A Scam Email with the Subject "From Dr Paul Akwa This Mail May Be A Surprise To You" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 04 Feb 2010 08:57:27 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was Dr Paul Akwa <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
This mail may be a surprise to you because you don't know me. My name is Dr Paul Akwa, a branch bank manager here in Ghana and I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids. After several official inquiries from the foreign trade office of our Chambers of Commerce and Industry, I decided to contact you directly for assistance. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars. This fund comes from the excess profit my branch made last year (i.e. 2009 financial year) and I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Accra-Ghana and they could not find out this excess profit.
I would like to transfer this fund into your account and invest in your country if possible through your advice and assistance. I choose you because I cannot be directly involved since 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. I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly get back to me for more details on how to proceed.
Dr Paul Akwa
