From: The Manager, International Commercial Bank Ghana First Light Branch Accra, Ghana. Dear sir I got your contact during my search on the Internet. My name is Mr Michael Ezra. I am the manager of the International Commercial Bank Ghana, First Light Branch Accra. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of US$1,550.000.00. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manger made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved End of the last Year report for the year 2005 to my Head Office here in Accra and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of US$ 1,550.000.00 on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. With regards, Michael ezra
