From: Mr. Bill Johnson

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. Bill Johnson I am the regional manager of Standard chartered bank of Ghana Osu 
branch in the greater Accra region of Ghana. I got your information when I was searching for an 
oversea partner among other names. I write you this proposal in good faith; I am 56 years old 
married with two lovely kids. I am a devoted Christian and a man of peace.

I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and me, as the regional manager of 
the Standard chartered bank it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the 
capital city Accra at the end of each business year. On the course of the last year 2009 business 
report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made four million two hundred 
thousand united state dollars (4.2m)USD which my head office are not aware of and will never be 
aware of. I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call account with no beneficiary.

As an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, so my aim of contacting 
you is to assist me receive this money in your bank account and get 50% of the total funds as 

There are practically no risks involved, it will be a bank-to-bank transfer, and all I need from 
you is to stand as the original depositor of these funds who made the deposit with my branch so 
that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account.
If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much. Email me with the email address so that we can go over the details and I will give you my full information. 
Remember there is no risk involved I promise.

Thank you in advance and May God bless you and your family.
I await your positive response towards my message.
Yours Sincerely,

Mr. Bill Johnson.
