HOW ARE YOU TODAY? HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU.
First of all, let me start by introducing myself. My name is Mr. Simon
Dornoo I was appointed Managing Director of Ghana Commercial Bank Ltd.
(GCB) effective March 04, 2010. I have an urgent and very confidential
business proposition for you. I am the accounting officer of Mr. Ken Lay,
Enron founder, who died on July, 5th 2006, at the age of 64 and his friend
and partner Mr. Jeffrey Schilling, Ex-Enron CEO who was recently convicted
24 years for his involvement on the collapse of Enron, the energy trading
giant in America. It will interest you to know that on Wednesday, 7th
February 2001, Mr. Ken Lay deposited a total sum of 21M dollars and on
Tuesday, 24th April 2001, Mr Jeffrey Schilling deposited 13.5M dollars in
our Bank. These funds were deposited into a non-existing company's account
which I opened in our bank (Ghana Commercial Bank Ltd) under their
instructions, to avoid raising an eyebrown but unfortunately for them and
fortunately for me, the 2 men are gone.
So right now, we have the sum of 34.5M dollars lying in the 2 accounts
without any proof of ownership as it was opened with non-existing companies
name and the bank is not aware of the real beneficiaries as the accounts
did not bear any name. As their accounting officer and financial adviser in
charge of these accounts, I can comfortable present you to the Bank as the
real beneficiary of the funds and they have no right to deny the
Consequently, my proposal is that I want to seek your consent as a
foreigner to stand as the owner of any of these accounts, since it has no
trace or beneficiary which makes it easier and fine to transfer to your
designated bank account as the beneficiary. The nature of my work as a
staff of the Bank will not allow me lay claim on the funds, hence this
proposal to you and be informed that as long as you are ready to cooperate
and be truthful to me, I can assure you that the sky will be our limit. All
documents and proves to enable you get any of the money will be carefully
worked out and more so, I assure you that the business is risk free, as
everything will be handled in accordance with the International Monetary
I am offering you 40% for your cooperation in achieving this aim. Please,
if you are interested in working with me, I will like you to send the below
information's to enable me contact An accredited attorney to procure the
necessary legal documents that will back up the transfer to your account:
1. YOUR FULL NAMES AND ADDRESS...........................................
2. AGE AND MARITAL STATUS.............................
5. TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS FOR EASY COMMUNICATIONS
As soon as I receive your acceptance mail by forwarding the above
information's, further details will be giving to you.
Finaly, I want you to understand that this transaction requires trust,
honest and above all, utmost confidentiality, to avoid escalating.
