A Scam Email with the Subject "My pleasure to meet you!" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 09 Dec 2011 15:15:04 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Mr. Gabriel Addo" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

Best regards!

My name is Mr. Gabriel Addo. I am a banker here in Ghana. I got your contact from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of International Trade and Industry. I need your help to transfer the sum of US$7, 500,000.00 into your account as my foreign partner.

The money is part of the profits made by our bank last year (i.e. 2010) in the branch which i am the manager. I have already submitted annual report for last year to my bank head quarters in Accra - Ghana, and they did not notice the excess profits. I deposited the US$7, 500,000.00 in an escrow account without a beneficiary (Anonymous), to avoid any trace.

I cannot be directly connected to this fund because I'm still working with the bank. So, I need your help to transfer this money to your country for you and i to share. I offer you 40% of this money as my foreign partner and 60% would be for me. There is no risk involved because it will be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as my foreign partner and owner of the money to enable you present a foreign bank account where the money will be transferred to.

If you accept this proposal, I am prepared to go into partnership with you. Please kindly reply to me for more information on how to proceed.

Mr. Gabriel Addo.
