Dear friend,I am Mr. Ebow Fredrick a branch bank manager with a bank here in Accra-Ghana. I contacted you for assistance because I am interested in transferring the sum of Four Million, Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars into your account which I would like to invest in your country in real estate if possible, personally I contacted you after getting your information through a personal search for an honest and reliable foreigner from our chamber of commerce.
I made this money (US$4,850,000.00) out of my branch office as excess profit for the 2007 fiscal year. I choose you because I cannot be directly involved for I am still working with the bank and as a civil servant I am not entitled to have such huge amount, I hope you can understand my situation and assist me to receive and invest this money properly as this is my only hope. You will get 40% of the total fund as commission for your sympathetic co-operation while 60% will be for me. Please do reply me immediately on my alternate e-mail address: email@example.com for more details.
I need your immediate response for us to proceed. Best regards, Mr. Ebow Fredrick Tel: 00233-548-136692
