Dear Friend, First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly Confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that this is real and genuine. My name is Mr.Gideon Kofi. you can reach me on this number +233248191079 I am the manager of the standard chartered bank of Ghana, first light branch. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of (US$3,270,000.00).This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved end of the year report for the year 2009 to my head office here in Accra and they will never know of this excess. I have since then, placed this amount of (US$3,270,000.00) on a suspense account without a beneficiary. As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. Its going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. With Regards, Mr.Gideon Kofi
