Dear friend, I am Mr. Godwin Agodo a financial consultant with the Ghanaian Ministry of health, in 2006 I was hired by the Ghanaian Government to solicit for funding from the International Monetary Fund which after a big struggle approved and released funding which was paid into the ministry of health account with the International Commercial Bank Ghana. I arranged with the bank to place the fund in a gold premium account because of the huge interest that it will attract, a total sum of USD $7, 800,000.00 accrued as interest before the government made their last withdrawal and the interest was placed in a suspense account until last month with the manager’s arrangement it was moved to a financial services firm. It is at this juncture that I would need your help by requesting that the firm release the fund to your care since it would raise a lot of dust if the funds are paid into my account. If you accept to assist me I will need your information such as; Your Name, Address and Tel Number to fill in the deposit form as the beneficiary and the fund will be released to you. I intend for you to retain 40% of the fund for your help. while you will pay in 60% into an account for me and my contacts in the ministry. Finally and most importantly, the CEO of the financial services firm who has been very helpful equally agreed to defer the payment of the firms service charge until after the funds have been released to whoever I nominate as the beneficiary. If you wish to help me and help yourself, then get back to me for further details Regards, Godwin Agodo
