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 commission. 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 email@example.com so that we can go over the details and I will give you my full information.
