department of Ministry of Mines and Energy Ghana and also a member of contracts awarding committee 
of this ministry under Ghana government.

I got your full information from Chamber of Commerce and industry on foreign business relations 
here in Accra-Ghana.And i beleived you must be trustworthy and honest main looking at your 
profile.Some years ago, Ghana government asked this committee to awards contracts to foreign firms, 
which I and my colleague happed to be the head of this committee. With our good position, this 
contract was over invoiced and as a deal to be benefited by me and my colleague.

Now the contracts value has been paid off to the actual contractors that executed these jobs, all 
we want now is a trusted foreign partner like you that we shall front with his banking account 
number to Claim the over inflated sum.The said funds will be shared within us when it is confirmed
