Good day,I am sure this letter will come to you as a surprise because myself who is the writer have not in anyway come in close contact with you except that my search for a good and reliable person I could confined on to carry out successfully a little business I have at hand.
However, scam mails which people send to various individuals and companies on the internet have also made it so impossible for one to do business reliably with other internet users all over the world. I solicit and hope that this letter will not be considered of treated like one of those letters.
My name is Nana Elvis, a Ghanaian from West African sub region. I work as a stockbroker with Ghana Stock Exchange for 5years now. Last year, a contract was awarded to a foreign company here in Ghana by the World Health organization to supply antenatal and post-natal drugs to the rural dwellers and also a retrovirus drugs for HIV/AIDS patients. The money that was meant for the procurements of these drugs was first deposited to the Bank where a friend of mind works. Using his position in the Bank, he brought the total money to the stock exchange market and traded with it before the contractors/suppliers applied to the bank to withdraw the money for the said purpose.
Now that the money have been recalled and the contractors withdrew it to carry out their project, the dividend/gain made from the turnover of the total money is $930,000.00 (Nine Hundred and thirty thousand US Dollars) What I only want you to do for me is just to use your name to claim the money from the Stock Exchange Market which I will programmed in our electronic system/database as the owner/beneficiary of the $930,000.00 which you traded with us.
As you know that the money is not up to $1,000,000.00, we will not go through the rigorous process involved in money/wire transfer here in Africa. We will instruct our accredited bank to raise a certified bank draft that is valued the said amount with a draft certification in your name to enable your local bank accept and honor the draft for payment in your name.
Please I would prefer to elaborate the modalities to you in details only when you accepted to do the business with me. We will also discuss what will be your share for assisting me. You can send me a mail or as well call me on the phone number below or write to me through email@example.com for proper discussion on this.
Thank you, Nana Elvis Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
