This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a
day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. My
name is Mr. Douglas Allotey, the present branch Manager of a bank here in
Ghana.  I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can
trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. Like I said, I
have a transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is
required as a foreigner.

I use to head the Accounts department in my bank head office, but last
December I was asked to take position of a Manager of our branch in Kumasi
who passed on, so that was how I became the present Manager and discovered
a fortune. As I resumed duty, I discovered an account with
total sum of $12,500,000 million that has not been operated on for the
past 4 years.
