My greetings to you and your family,
My name is Mr.Martin Paul, I am a retired bank manager of Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Ltd .
I do not want problems but just hope you can assist me, I write you this letter in good faith. I have a transaction of three million two hundred and fifty thousand United States dollars ($3,250,000.00). I realized this fund from my bank excess profit after trading with the capital sum and I deposited the funds in escrow account, nobody will have access to it even the bank does not have access to this account because it cannot be deducted until after the transfer.
However, I can not be directly get myself connected/involved to this money transfer/transaction for obvious reasons. So i am contacting you is to assist/help me receive the funds in your bank account in your country, which I know is possible if you liaise properly with me and get 30% of the total funds as your benefit/commission. The transfer would be made via swift and it will be a Bank-to-Bank wired transfer. ( Basically you are standing as my beneficiary to the fund )
I am ill that is why am contacting you to finalize this transaction to enable me have a very good medical attention and hope to join you in your place for a business investment.
All I need is for you to get a good bank account where this fund can be transferred into, and also for you to stand to claim as the original depositor of this fund so that within six working days the funds will be transferred to your designated bank account.
Thanks for your understanding, co-operation and trust i awaits your urgent reply so that we can proceed immediately.
