ATTENTION; Dear Confidant, From: Mr. Paul Adam,I am Mr. Paul Adam, a Ghanaian; married with two kids and I am a Christian. This transaction is 100% legitimate; also we can conclude this transaction within three days if only you will adhere strictly to my instructions without any argument or doubt. I am in control of Six Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($6,500,000.00USD) but I do not have access to this fund; even the bank have NO access to the account where this fund were lodged; it is called escrow call account and it can only be transferred to the beneficiary’s designated bank account outside Ghana because the account is strictly meant for international transfers without any deduction and the account can only be operated by foreigners, government and Big companies. Finally I did not declare this fund to the bank before my retirement (retired Bank). I am contacting you, to stand as the beneficiary of this fund because only a foreigner can stand as the beneficiary. Can I trust you to hold this money for me until I come to your country? After the transfer, I will give you 40% of the total amount as your commission. All I need from you now is send your full name, telephone numbers, fax numbers, company name and send your full contact address to enable me to process the transfer. Because the fund can either be issued as draft or transferred direct to your designated bank account. There are practically no risks involved; it will be a bank-to-bank transfer. I hope you understand my situation. I am critically ill that is why I contacted you to finalize this transaction to enable me have a very good treatment abroad. Call me for further explanation. Thank you and God bless. Yours truly, Mr. Paul Adam,
