From: Dr. Paul Acquah Governor Bank of Ghana Good day, I am Dr.Paul Acquah, the Governor Bank Of Ghana. I personally discovered a dormant account with a total sum of $79,000,000.00 (SEVENTY NINE MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS) during our Bank's Annual Year Account Auditing. The owner of this dormant account died on 4th Jan 2005. Since the death of the deceased, nobody has operated in this account till date. Moreover, this account has NO BENEFICIARY attached to it. Definitely, this fund will be confiscated by our BANKING CODE OF ETHICS if it remains dormant for a period of (3) years without any claims. In this regard, I earnestly need your full cooperation in transferring this dormant fund out of our bank to avoid confiscating this fund. I will split the transfer into two 2 stages for easy and smooth transfer. First, I will transfer $30,000,000.00 to any valid foreign account you will nominate, upon a successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, I will then fly to meet you in your home destination for sharing, and thereafter we jointly transfer the remaining balance of $49,000,000.00 for magnitude investments. If you are willing to cooperate in this project, I will give you details immediately as soon as I hear from you. Please note that you are required to keep very confidential.Please get back to me on my private email address:email@example.com for more details. Yours truly, Dr.Paul Acquah Governor Bank of Ghana Tell:+233246418021 Email firstname.lastname@example.org
