Dear Friend, I hope this may not constitute sort of embarrassment to you, My name is Dr. Roland Kingsman, I am the regional bank manager of the Barclays Bank Ghana Ltd. I am 51 years of age and married with 3 lovely kids. It may interest you to hear that I am a man of PEACE and INTEGRITY; I only hope we can assist each other . I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us, as the regional Auditor General of the Barclays Bank Ghana Ltd.; it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital city Accra at the end of each year.. On the course of last year 2009 end of year report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made an excess profit of Three Million Seven Hundred And Fifty Thousand united states dollars [USd$3.750,000.00] which my head office are not aware of and will never be aware of.I have since placed this fund on what we call SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without any beneficiary. As an officer of the bank I can not be directly connected to this money, this is why I,m contacting you for us to work so that you can assist me and receive this money into your bank account for us to share. Upon your acceptance of this proposal, I have generally agreed on this sharing ration 30% of the total sum will be given to you for your assistance upon the receipt of the funds in your account while 70% will be for me. Note that there are practically no risks involved in this transaction, it will be bank to bank transfer,all I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of this fund who made the deposit with Takoradi branch so that my Head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account. I assure you we can achieve it successfully if you can follow my instruction and direction. In your reply, please send the following information as underlined below: 1.
