Dear Friend, My name is,mark elvis, I am the regional manager of the coopec bank abidjan, ivore coast, platu branch in the western region of ivore coast. I got your information on a recent bank conference with other West African countries held in Lome the capital of Togo in West Africa. I am 42years old married with two lovely kids. I am a man of peace and I don't want problems only hope you can assist me. If you don't want this proposal, I can forget ever contacted you. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit you and I. As the regional manager of the Barclays bank it is my duty to send in a financial report to my head office in the capital city at the end of each business year. On the course of the last year 2006 business report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the branch manager made US($16,500.000)which my head office are not aware of and will never be aware of. I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call account with no beneficiary. As an officer of this bank I can not be directly connected to this money, so my aim of contacting you is to assist me receive this money in your bank account and get 20%of the total funds as commision. There are practically no risk involved, it will be a bank to bank transfer, all I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of this funds who made the deposit with my branch so that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bank account. If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much. Email me if you think we can work together so that we can go over details. Thank you in advance and May God bless you and your family.
