From:Mr.Kofi Mensah Accra Ghana Good Day My Friend. My Name is Mr.Kofi Mensah I am the Eastern regional branch manager of the Standard Chartered Bank West Africa.I do not want problems but I just hope you can assist me.I write you this letter in good faith. I am in control of the sum of two million,eight hundred and fifty thousand US dollars ($2,850,000.00) which was an excess of profit made by our regional eastern branch office in the last quarter of the year 2009,which I have carefully placed in an Escrow Call Deposit Account and did not declare this to my head office. Can I really trust you to hold this money for me until I arrive your country and pick it up myself and you deduct 30% of the total money as your commission.If you accept my offer you can contact me immediately.If you do not accept can you forget I contacted you? All I need is for you to get me a good current account in your bank where I can move this money.I will discreetly give you all the information concerning the account so that you can apply to the bank for the release of the money.There is practically no risk involved,it will be a bank to bank transfer.Take my word. I hope you understand my situation. Yours Faithfully. Mr.Kofi Mensah
