(RE: TRANSFER OF ($ 9,000.000.00 USD}

We want to transfer to overseas ($ 9,000.000.00 USD) from a bank here in Ghana, I want to ask you 
to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an 
existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty 
a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end of this 
important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now 
or in future.

I am Mr.James Addo, Director of International Relation with a bank here in Ghana,during the course 
of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 2005 and since 
2007 nobody has operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I 
discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I 
do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.

the owner of this account is Mr.Peter Cole, a foreigner, and a sailor, and he died since 2007. and 
no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other 
beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that Peter Cole was the manager of 
Peterson.(Gh). LTD.

I don't know any foreigner in my life, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money 
can not be approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can 
only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign 
a/c because the money is in US dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr. Peter Cole is a 
foreigner too, [and the money can only be approved into a foreign a/c.

Arrange your A/c and send it to me as follows for the processing of the payment:

1]A/C NUMBER:...............
2]A/C NAME:...................
3]BANK NAME:.................
4]BANK ADDRESS:..............
5]SWIFT CODE:..................

I got your contact address from my secretary who operates computer and I am revealing this to you 
with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the 
only person that I am contacting for this business,so please reply urgently so, that I will inform 
you the next step to take.Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full 
details of the account to be used for the deposit as started above.

I need your full co-operation to make this work fine.because the management is ready to approve 
this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to 
you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with 
instruction of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business.

I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down,With the influence and the position of 
the key bank official we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can 
provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country 
for sharing. The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive 
this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence, you can come immediately to 
discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of 
us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.

I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and 
receive this fund in your account.I will apply for the legal approvals for onward transfer of this 
money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange 
departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 60% 
will be for me,5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of 
transferring and 5% will be for orphanage homes.

I look forward to hear from you as soon as possible if you are interested.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr.James Addo
