Dear Friend,

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.

Best regards,
Dr Paul Akwa
